Steves' Great idea

I am very fortunate to have all the re-inkers for the complete set of Spectrum Noir markers, Tim Holtz distress , Stayzon, Encore and Memento ink pads.  That is a whole lot of little bottles to try and find a home for !  It was also a pain to try to find a marker refill, 168 bottles in one tub. I could order the refill and get it faster on Amazon!  ( My oldest son would say something like "extreme problems of the 1st world").  I think the inks refills were the last thing I needed to get organized, I was talking about it to Steve and he said "how about those over the door clear shoe holders?  Brilliant and perfect!
So I ordered 3 from Amazon:



There isn't any space left in my room other than the door so I put the holders on the giant closet slider behind my desk.


Next I had to decide how to organize these. I first thought I would put all the bottles in order


Then I thought , well that will take all night!
So using the order that the pens are stored in


I put Stickies up on the plastic pockets


then just pulled them from the containers.


What I didn't count on was the weight of these 300+ bottles.  After getting it half full I checked the slide on the door, and it wasn't working very well!
So I went to plan B and put them on the back of my hall door.
  They are all in order , the lower rows are the ink pad re-inkers and I have them in order by company and then by ROYGBVB.


Total cost $17.00!!
I hope this gives you a good idea of how to store the reinkers in your stash - thanks Steve!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are having a great weekend!
