I only have 50 so they're just alphabetical. But you can store yours at my house if you like? BigGrin Wink .With you having so manyDrool you could organize Fonts,holidays,full carts,images,Licensed(Disney etc.) and so on. Good luck with it and hide them from Hubby and other relatives that borrow and/or tattle LOL.

I don't have nearly that many. Mine are mostly in alpha order. Then I ran out of space, and those are not in order. I have to figure out another solution. Good luck organizing them all!

Organized Cricut cartridges? You mean you can actually do that? I'm kidding. I have 50 maybe 60 carts so I just keep them on a small three shelf unit. I have the cartridges three deep, and the ones I use least are in the back rows.

I am lucky I have the space and I like you have around 300 cartridges. I have two Ikea glass front cabinets on the wall and store them in the boxes... :)

I have 307 and all of mine are linked to my Gypsy. I store the cartridges in a 3 drawer Sterline (http://www.sterilite.com/SelectProduct.html?id=663&ProductCategory=186&section=1) in my closet and I have 3 of these - http://www.sterilite.com...tegory=185&section=1 - that hold all of my books and overlays in alpha order. I made folders using colored cs from Staples that have each name on them and a color for each letter. That way they are easier for me to find when I need to check out the book. I also have the digital book on my computer if I am away from home and need to look in the book. So far this system is working for me and I have tried a bunch of different ones.

I have them all. And they're all linked to CCR, so the actual carts with their overlay and handbook are in their box and stashed in plastic tubs in the basement. So, I use CCR for every cut and no more hunting for the cart!

Hi!
I have almost 200 cartridges, I keep the empty boxes in the garage in two storage tubs.

All my cartridges are linked to my Gypsy and CCR except ZooDay which is one Provo Craft is working on.

I downloaded all the handbooks to Google Reader and I have that on my phone and my mini iPad (it's a new gadget to me, just got it 10 days ago. I like looking at the handbooks on the mini better than my iPhone, because of the size.

I have those older Iris carts with the plastic drawers in my craft room, and for those who don't know they're like the Sterilite unites only deeper, taller and varying drawer sizes. I keep a lot of my crafting stuff in 4 of those units.

Anyway, I have each cartridge, handbook and overlay, rubberbanded together and stored alphabetically. I did this because I sometimes loan my cartridges out, sometimes just cut from the cartridge, and with the age of my Gypsy and the issues I'm having with CCR actually cutting I wanted easy access to the handbooks, overlays and cartridge.

Hope that helps

I also use the Artbin cartridge containers/store in alpha order and keep in a rolling cart with the ability to slide containers in and out with easy. Bought Artbins from JoAnnes with coupons and rolling cart from JoAnnes on line/on sale.

I made little file boxes for mine,long and skinny. The book and the cartridge fit side by side instead of one behind the other. I keep them in plastic drawers from Wally's. All in alphabetical order.

Except that I am about 20 carts behind! Flapper And that does not count my I cartridgs.

But I am happy with my system. I can very easily pull cart, book, and overly out and put them away.

Most of mine are linked to my Gypsy. I hope she lives forever.

I have over 200. All of the carts are stored in the medium stackable snapware containers. The books and overlays are in little Ziploc bags sorted in photo boxes. That way I could get the boxes out of my way and if anyone borrows a cart I just write their name and the cart name on a piece of paper in the box and put the cart in the Ziploc. I downloaded all my books to my laptop and nook as well. All carts are linked to my gypsy and ccr.

I also use the artbin containers I am
at 225to 250 I had to stop countingLaugh I found a spinning display rack that held cutting board at a flea market it will hold 6 of the boxes on each side stadium style so it works for me I wish I could keep them in ther boxes but it takes up to much room. and so I know what cart is in which box I have labeled them 1-12 and put 81/2x11 card stock with the names of cart in that box taped to the inside of the lid

I have over 100 I think. My husband built an oak shelf for me to store them in. Since I don't link mine, I have ready access to them.

I don't know how many I have but when I want to lift a project I usually have the carts needed.
Mine are stored in the Artbin boxes too. It's much more space saving. I have them on my Gypsy and now CCR. It's so much easier!!

I store mine on CD shelves. I now have most linked to CCR, so I'll probably leave them packed in boxes and put them in the garage. Also the cartridges that did not come in cartridges boxes, I store those in CGull Cricut cartridge bags.

I put my industrious DH to work and had him modify Closet Maid racks for me which we mounted on the wall. As you can see though, it's time to add #5. I have just a handful over 200 carts, including digitals. Each of these racks will hold 44 but I have all the solutions carts in VHS cases in the top right. Those had to be stored in a different direction because the VHS boxes are just a tad wider than the cricut boxes. I have them all stored alphabetically. My OCD seems to like that. LOL
