Super Storage...

...and such a bargain!

I have recently seen several folk in Blogland with fab cases that they have used for their Promarkers - cases that were originally designed to take 200 CD/DVDs. I have hunted high and low for these cases. Tesco had them in their on-line shop at £7.99 but guess what...printed across the image was 'discontinued'. PC World, Staples and loads of others greeted me with..."I know just what you mean - but..."; none of them stock this item any more. I looked on-line and yes the item is available but at a price - anywhere between £30 & £40 - that is a lot of Flexmarkers that could be added to my collection. Then a friend suggested I try Maplins (the electrical folk).

Rather than walk to the other side of Stratford in my lunch break only to be disappointed - again! - I checked on-line. No 200 CD case but they did have a 300 CD case with a big price tag...then I found it...

In their current promotion they have a 500 CD case reduced from £50 to £20 and Stratford had 7 in stock. So I toddled off to have a look and came back with this...
It is surprisingly light and actually doesn't take up any more room than my existing storage for my Letraset markers; ALL OF THEM!
As you can see, I have made a start on re-housing my pens.
The Flexmarkers will fit beautifully in one section...
...and once I get some sticky dot labels, my Promarkers will be moving in too. There will even be room for my Aquamarkers. My Metallic markers have 'moved-in' but that was all the labels I had to hand.

So my Letraset storage is now sorted **happy bunny** and i will actually be able to use my pens without rummaging through plastic boxes. Result!!!............................................

Fab idea, it's lovely when you get some new storage isn't it? I think all crafters must be slightly OCD lol.

Fabby storage I loved it last year when I did mine, it seems to be one of my most popular posts on my blog so a lot of peeps must be liking it.

I dont use it now as I gave all my PMs to a blogging friend so I use something else now but its still a good storage solution.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
