My Nestabilities Storage Solution

Hey all, I thought I would share with you my storage solution for my Nesties. This works for me, and I'm happy with it.

Went to Staples Yesterday and got this Memorex CD File container. It's really nice; it's fabric covered, with a hinged top. This works like a mini file drawer, and the CD sleeves are like mini hanging file-folders! They're actually cute!

I cut a square of magnetic sheeting for each set to stay put within the pocket. It seems to be working great!

ETA: Some have asked where to get magnetic sheets. I've gotten them at both Staples and Michaels. If u can't find them just ask a store clerk, and they'll show you!

Let me know what you think!

Hugs,

This is a great idea and would love to do your system! However, where did you get the magnetic sheets from? I am having trouble finding where to get them.

Thanks!

Love your idea, that is a great way to store your nesties, I have mine in binder but thinking now I may need to look into that box idea. Thanks for the inspiration. I love your blog and signed up as a follower.

I love this, Ree! Looks so much more efficient than the CD cases I've been using! TFS!!

Kari Webster said...

Hi there again- I saw your storage idea on Crafty storage!

Whisk Woman said...

Very nice! But can you tell me if the Nesties that DON'T fit into a CD case will fit in the box? I just got the Curved Rectangles set and it's too long for a CD case :p

dalia said...

Very nice.
Where did you buy?
What size of each sleeve?
Great Nesties can also enter
Thanks

Hi, love this idea...organizing is my favorite! Not sure what nesties are, but love the box and how you store them. Pop over to my blog for visit. We seem to have similar lives. We have 2 daughter in college and a yellow lab...and live next door in RI.
Have a great night,
Karen

So cool. Are the boxes only one size? I will have to check out our staples. Since the are coming out with the grand nesties it would be nice if you can get bigger boxes??
Thanks

I've been looking for something that will work for my nestabilities and this is one idea that I think will work for me and not take up a lot of room. I live in an apartment and need all the space I can get. Thanks for sharing.

Tina said...

Hey all, I know this is an older post but wanted to say that U can also go to dollar tree, (for those that have one), Look for magnetic air vent sheet and U can cut them to size.
