Make it work Wednesday #4

I decided to share my punch storage with you today (the majority of them anyway) as also the way I store my mounted stamps. First for the punches. I purchased the lucite wall organizer from Staples or Office Max years ago to store the old style SU! pads in it so it got repurposed. The wooden rack on the top right was purchased at a resale shop for $1.50 and is a magazine rack for the wall. I just removed the middle bar so I could store 8 large punches and a few little ones along the bottom. The wooden rack on the left is an inexpensive storage crate from Hobby Lobby that has a few of the slats removed.
I love having my punches where I can see them and grab what I need easily.

Now for my wood mounted stamps, I have 2 VHS storage units. They hold the clear stamp boxes that measure 6" x 9". The first photo shows the tower & holds 25 boxes with my background stamps on the top. It measures 39" tall and 9" wide.

I just found the spinner rack at Goodwill yesterday for $2. I holds 24 boxes, 12 on each side. It measures 18" tall and is only 13" wide with the boxes in it. I need to get out my other favorite organization tool - my label maker and index the ends of the boxes so I can find things easier.
