On this Memorial Day weekend I would first like to take a moment to remember all the men and women who have sacrificed their life while serving in the various branches of the military to ensure our country's freedoms. I also want to thank all our troops for serving our great country right now.
I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend and spending time with their loved ones. I had a little time yesterday and I reorganized my Cricut cartridges. I am mainly a Gypsy user. I don't have a large craft space and it is much easier if I can keep my cartridges tucked away. However, I still miss the hand books and I often find myself digging them out just to see what exactly that little cut is and how is it layered. So I have pulled the handbooks out of each of the boxes. I left the cartridge and the overlay in the original box. I found these Sterilite boxes at Dollar General for $3 each. I bought one for my shapes and one for my fonts. I only have about 35 cartridges and this worked out great. The dimensions of the boxes are 11" x 6 5/8" x 5 3/8". I tore out all the non-english pages to make the booklets smaller and I can fit about 18-20 in each box. This takes up a whole lot of less space than the big rubbermaid tub with my boxes that I have now slipped into my closet.
I realize this only works for Gypsy users. Maybe there are others like me in that department. This is working great for me but I am always on the look out for good storage ideas so if I come up with something different I will let you know.
Have a safe holiday weekend.
