    I store mine in a drawer in the utility room. But I've just seen an idea on the French Internet, someone stored them in a photo album that has clear pockets in it so you can see all the packets when you turn the pages.

  • hi all    some good ideas there I use the wifes small pill bottles they are about 1nch half tall have about 20 of them and some very small plastic boxes of g/daughters nail kits and have them in sweet tins that we have used over past few years

    I've been looking on Pinterest and the photo album and pill bottles idea is very popular on there, also medicaticatin boxes that have a different compartment for each day of the week. Once you start looking it's amazing what you could use especially when u look in the arts and craft storage section on amazon. I think probably the less fussy the better and the more I look the more appealing the photograph album idea becomes. 

    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

    For me the expanding folder from Chris 172 is the most practical, precisely because it is "expanding" and allows for various thicknesses and numbers of packets 

  • I keep mine in a photoalbum. Perfect as you can see all of them by just turning pages and I sort them after when to sow.

    Mine are all thrown in a box and a tin,  no order, chaos in fact. But I love getting those containers out in February  and sorting them, a pile of what I will be sowing this year, others back for next year.

    Then they are filed in another box in date order of when I will sow them.
