I know this probably has been discussed on here so much that no one wants to talk about it ......lol......but, I have got to find a way to organize my stamps. I have my stamps right now in one of my Thirty-One bags.....all piled in some are on the big rings groups together.

I have googled stamp organizing and got all kind of ideas but they were pretty much older products that you can't find any more.
Plese give me any ideas that you may have .....

I have all of my cling stamps in one of these cropper hoppers and I love it. My wood block stamps I have in a basket (the larger ones) and the small ones I have in a pocket hanger on the back of a door that has 60 small pockets.

Waverly Storage Find By CrimsonMama

The pocket hanger is by Waverly. I found this one at Tuesday Morning but M's has recently had the same item.

Where can you buy the Cropper Hopper? I looked on here and they don't have it.

A's has them. I used to keep mine on a Clip It up. Now they are all categorized in clear plastic containers that hold acrylic and wooden stamps.

I turned all my wooden stamps into unmounted ones. I took them off the blocks.

I keep them in empty cd cases and in a round turn style cd holder. I love it.

My wooden stamps are in a shallow drawer under my desk, almost in two layers now.

My acrylic and cling stamps are in repurposed CD organiser cases that zip up so I can take them to crops.

I don't have a ton, but mine are in IRIS boxes organized by theme (Christmas, birthday, etc.). Probably wouldn't work for a ton of stamps, but it's good for finding a smaller collection when you need it!

Yes I've noticed a lot of folks say they do this. Right now my wood is not out of hand. And I love the wood blocks, they are like mini works of art!

I already have collected quite a few stamps, and especially since I didn't know I would ever us stamps it's crazy, so I can see how storage becomes a problem.

I took all of mine off the wood blocks and store them in a Cropper Hopper sticker binder. It works perfect for me.

I like the idea of the iris storage used for photos. It wouldn't work for a huge collection of wood stamps but huge is a relative term. Plus, you can organize by themes.

Do you have clear stamps?? If so, I stripped mine all out of the packaging and I cling them to the Zutter Clear Acrylic tabbed dividers and store them in a standard-size photo box. I don't have a huge collection tho... but I LOVE how little space this method takes up

I have mine in zip up binders on cling sheets and my magnolias are in 100 dvd cases with about 4 to 5 in each cd case.

I put all my unmounted stamps in a box in original packages and hid away. Instead of looking through the stamps, I have a small catalog (A5 size binder), where all stamps are stamped and sorted by theme, and labeled with a number (got a pack of small round stickers in dollar store, to sort by size of pack - small medium large, so three colors of stickers) - that way I look through the binder, find the number then go directly to the box. easy peasy.

I have an inventory LIST, but that is just so I don't duplicate what I have. That is why I like the Cropper Hopper, I can flip though them easy. I've seen your binder, I think you posted it? It's amazing way to do if you have a lot I can see the need.

We talk about this A LOT! I think it's important to have a system that enables you to USE what you have and not forget about it!

Do you ever look at a LO and go....."Oh Shoot! I could have done this or used that!" ????

Nope wasn't me! Was it Henri maybe? She has a terrific organization system!
I agree with having and using! every once in a while I flip through the catalog just to remind myself of what I have)
