Cropper Hopper to Organize Mike’s $1 Stamps

Okay, part 2 of getting organized with the Cropper Hopper goodies I recently bought at Tuesday Morning. Here is what I started with…a bunch of Michael’s $1 acrylic stamps in baggies, kinda sorted by Series, in a 12×12 Iris drawer. NOT a good arrangement. Again, every time I opened the drawer, it got jammed up. As anal as I was about keeping the sets together when I first started “collecting” them, now I don’t care and would rather have them sorted by topic.

And how easy was that? I cut index cards down a bit to act as dividers. Nothing fancy, just wrote ‘em in by hand. I cut the tops off of each stamp package to allow for easy use. I had originally planned to take them out of the package altogether but when I tried that, the stamps alone were so little, it seemed like they sunk way far down in the drawer. Man, I was SO ready to throw more packaging away, LOL!

Here’s what it looks like with the drawer closed. Nice. Compact. Dust free. Love it. I’m hoping I’ll use them more now that they are so nicely organized.

That drawer is pretty packed though, so now the question is, “Do I buy more storage drawers…or quit buying Mike’s stamps?”

If you know anything about me, you know the answer to that question…{wink}

    What a great idea! Stamp storage is on my ‘need to figure out’ list. Unfortunately I have so many different sized pacakges it will be a task.

    Awesome idea!! I just might have to do this. I am using the ole’ target ones from the $1 spot from many moons ago. Now I can add on with these.

    More drawers are a must, because you know your addiction will not stop. How can it? The stamps are just so cute and useful!
