    I have lots of stamps. I currently store them in ziplock bags labeled with the theme (flowers, Christmas, animals, etc.), in a large box. Any better ideas?

    I bought a plastic rolling cart with lots of drawers. I still used the ziplock bags but it was easier to locate the ones I wanted with label stickers on the drawers.

    a teammate used ice cube trays... good for organizing primary letter stamps.

    Thanks everyone. I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond today and purchased 3 stackable drawer units for my stamps. I also bought 3 larger units for my cookie cutters. I placed the plastic bags in each drawer and labeled the drawers. That was the perfect solution. I also purchased ice cube trays at the .99 cent store for my alphabet, inchworm, and number stamps. All of my stamps are so accessible. I am so excited. Thank you so much for your ideas. :love:

    On a similar note, can anyone tell me where I can find some stamps? I am student teaching next semester, and I would like to find some that are not too too expensive. Thanks for any help.

    i get my "teacher" stamps at target and my cutesy stamps at michael's and hobby lobby (or any craft store) when they have them on sale. sometimes you can find foam stamps as well... those tend to be bigger and much cheaper, and usually come in themed sets like bugs, animals, letters, etc.
