Stamp Storage Made Easy
The best part of this storage system is that ALL of my stamps are mobile!!! No more digging for the stamps and struggling to pack them to take with me to crops. Each cd case holds one layer of cling mount rubber stamps OR two layers of clear stamps because the clear stamps are thin (one layer inside the front cover of the cd case and one inside the back cover).
Any cd rack or bookshelf will work to store your stamps, I just prefer to have mine accessible on the wall so that they are up and out of the way. The less surface space that I have to give up to storage, the better. The cd racks that I'm using are from IKEA and run about $5.99 each (I have 2). The binder was in the clearance rack at Staples for about $2.00 and the cd cases came from Big Lots and were about $3 per pack. I would guestimate that I bought about 8 packs of cd cases. You can probably find them cheaper online. Just make sure you are getting the normal (large) cd cases.... the kind that music cd's come in. The ultra thin jewel cases DO NOT hold stamps. I made that mistake....
Ok, that is it for today's post. I'm hoping this helps someone who is struggling with a quadrillion stamp sets that need to find a home!!! Catch you all next time!
