Chipboard to go! I have been searching for a portable solution to my chipboard letters, shapes, etc. and I've finally found it. And it was cheap. :D

I knew I wanted divided storage, but every container I've ever found had compartments that were too narrow, too shallow, not tall enough...so I never could use them. (some of my chipboard letters are quite big) So while at Hobby Lobby this week I found the 18-compartment Craft Design Storage Case, made by Akro-Mils. They were $5.99/each, on sale this week 1/3 off. I only needed two of these to fit ALL of my chipboard alphas, shapes, and numbers. You can have up to 18-compartments, but you can also customize it so some of the compartments are larger. I needed to do this for several of my letters. Then I labeled each section with some alphabet stamps and my Staz-On ink pad. And the best thing about this storage is that the lid is a grid with deep grooves, so when the lid is closed, each compartment is sealed. This will keep the letters from mixing up and falling into each other's compartments. YAY! I am going to an out of town weekend scrapbook retreat next month to teach and play and I was not looking forward to throwing them all into ziploc bags again. The storage case specs are - 14 3/8" W x 9 1/2 "D x 2 1/2 " H. (perfect depth for chipboard letters, as you can see)
NEW PIC ADDED - this is the closed box with the label that was on it:

This morning the UPS man rang my doorbell and left a box containing these -
What a GREAT surprise!
Thank you to J. :)
