Organizing Clear Acrylic Stamps

“Organizing is what you do before you do something

so that when you do it, it’s not all mixed up.”

journal entry:

I was a slow learner when it came to stamps.  It wasn’t until I settled on this method for the storage of clear, acrylic stamps that had any faith that I could find what I wanted when I wanted it.  The DVD holder was inexpensive.  The DVD cases came in boxes of 25 in multi-color assortments.  I separated acrylic stamps into categories and by original sets.  For example:  I put all of the hearts in one case, even though they might have originally come in several different sets.  I did label the cases on the outside but I can see through the cases just as easily.  The outside labels makes it easy for me to put the stamps in alphabetical order.  When I buy a new set of stamps, I put them right into a colored case, label it and add it to the rack.  Little people love to use stamps.  It is pretty easy to let them pull out a plastic case, peel the stamps out of it as they use them, wipe them off with a “wet wipe “and return the case to its proper place.  Actually, that description sounds more like a hope than a reality.  Now . . . rubber stamps are a greater challenge and for them I have a different solution.
