My New Stamp Storage

I just wanted to share my new stamp storage.  I know it's nothing revolutionary, but it's something that has been bugging me for a while.  I have all of my stamps mounted on EZ Mount Storage Panels in binders.  Anyone that's used these sheets though, knows that the stamps are not 100% secure.  Since I like to take my stamps with me to different locations sometimes, I was always living in fear that one might fall off and get lost!  Yesterday I finally gave in and went to our local office supply store.

I came away with a plastic file box, and 25 hanging files, for around $28 CDN.  If you're in the States, I'm sure you could get the exact same thing for much cheaper!  All I need to do now, is attach labels for the brand divisions.

 This is 13 of the file folders, I will easily be able to fit in all 25, with room to spare.

I am planning on having one EZ Mount Storage Panel in each folder, with stamps on both sides.  Love those hAnglars!  :)

Oh, and if you think you're seeing blurry today, no; apparently my daughter got a bit too close to the dog when she was taking closeups of them snuggling.  There is a gigantic smudge in the middle of my lens, which I didn't notice until I was posting this!  Nice!  LOL

I figure I will be able to store close to 1000 stamps in one bin, and the bins are stackable.  Have stamps, will travel!  Just let me know when to be there!  :)

Just wanted to share the wonderful weather here, while I'm posting :)  At 2:30 we were at a balmy -24C.  (-34 with windchill).  I should have included the photo I took of my dog, staring out the window.  She's trying to see how long she can hold it!  LOL

Great storage system! I have mine in CD cases on wall mounts....but I'm finding I'm using rubber stamps less and less.

WHOA - is it ever cold where you are!

Looks great Christine! Now you just need to tell me what you do with your paper!! That's the one area I have a big problem with. I use the Stampendous storage containers for my stamps & they are great because they don't fall out :)
Ooooh I was complaining about our weather but I sure won't now! I don't blame the dog I would be holding it too :)

brrr...chilly! We woke to freezing rain! I love your storage idea - I'm always afraid of losing my stamps from their binders as well. This is fantastic!

Fabulous idea for storage Christine! And I can't say that I envy your weather...although I wish I could stay home and bake a bit!

Fabulous storage system, I think I'll have to switch to something like this soon, thank you so much for the idea!

What a smart and old school idea! I HATE my binders. This would be such a better system for me. Off to Staples to fnd this size storage box!
