Hi everyone! Today it is my turn to share some organizational tips with you regarding your alphabet stickers. I know we all have a lot of them!
I have my American Craft Thickers kept seperate from my other alphabet stickers. I found this bin at Target on clearance years ago & it works great for storing them:
Image

I keep smaller sheets of alpha stickers in this plastic bin that I purchased at Michael's:

Image

And I keep the larger 12x12 alphabet sticker sheets in this clear folder:
Image
I attached a hook to the inside door of my armoire & it hangs there!
Image

I hope this has given you some ideas, and I would love to see how you store all of your alphabet stickers!

I have a similar bin from Target that I keep all my alphas in big/little, but not my manufacture DTs they stay in a bag with the collections so I don't forget about them.

I am definitely an alpha hoarder! I need a really big tote for all that I have. Thanks for sharing your storage tips. I need all the ideas I can get. :D

Here's where my alphabets reside:

Image

There, in the two rows of rectangular drawers right under the baskets. I have them organized by color. All but one color category could fit in this wall unit - so there's one drawer of metallic alphabets in the closet. It works very well, except for one thing. The drawers are getting too full!

I've thought about culling all the alphabet sets that are missing their Es and putting them in a box, but haven't done that yet.

WOW Susan! I think we need pics of your whole room! LOL! It's so PRETTY! :)

I have a PSB binder that holds all my alphabets except the die cut and chipboard types. It's full to overflowing and I can't even zip it closed completely. They're organized by color. I also need to cull through it and pull the ones that are out of vowels or the RST combo but then I don't know where I'd put them! :)

Here are mine...

Flat alphas get prominent position in the first five Crop Hopper pockets I have. They are arranged according to my favorites/newest...

All Thickers are in here, sorted by color, then material...
Image

Then, miscellaneous bulky alphas reside in a photo box...

Yes, Megan, those are all Jet Max cubes, painstakingly purchased from Michaels with a coupon for each one. Five across x five down, the entire unit is about the same size as the largest of Ikea's Expedit units. I had to plan out the arrangement before I started buying. I love it!

Regarding your storage arrangement, I like how the Thickers fit perfectly in the Jet Max quad drawer units.

Wow! That is serious commitment Susan to purchase those one by one. When we move, the goal in the next house is the have a rec room/bonus room of some sort that can double as a playroom and scraproom. I want to be able to scrap and watch Liam at the same time. So my thought was to create some sort of waist-high divider to close off the scrap space using either a line of two-high JetMax cubes or 4x2 Expedit shelves from Ikea. The nice thing about the Jet Max cubes is I can move them around when a divider is no longer necessary, I can get exactly which ones serve my storage purpose best and they have a back.

And I swear that the quad-drawer units were made for Thickers...or really that AC made Thicker packages sized to those drawers since the cubes were around first!
