      So, I LOVE my Art Bin magnetic storage for my dies.  Coming home from camp, my suitcase with the art bin storage exploded and I couldn't tell right away if any dies were missing. I got a new box for them today, and I was thinking that I should trace my dies with a Sharpie so I will be able to see if one is missing in the future, and maybe it will help me stay organized. BUT, before I do this, I want to get some input: can you see any
      problem with doing this? I just don't want to commit, then hate it. What do you think?

        Rae, I use the Art Bin also, love it, I have my sheet labeled at the top with the company, then under the die somewhere I write the name of the die itself. At one point I took pictures…..(I buy to many dies) lol

        I just use a sharpie, if I move any around I just use some alcohol or fingeail polish to remove the old sharpie.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          I have an Art Bin box too and I love it. Been thinking to myself about the best way to keep them organized. Just the other day I labeled one page for Memory Box dies. And was thinking about writing the names of the dies undeeath each die. Currently I have the name written on the die itself where possible. I had not thought about the fact that you can remove Sharpie ink with alcohol, but you can so I'm gling to label all my pages just as Heather does! Thanks Heather!

              Yeah- I've been toying with a labeling system for a while. I don't always remember the names of the dies after I've had them for a while, and I feel like a jerk when someone asks, and I don't know. 🙂

                I save all the inserts in a file so I can go back if I need to. but I have stayed pretty up to date. I haven't been doing this as long as you Rea. 🙂

                  If there are multiple dies in a collection I put the correlating number with it. Just to keep track. (ok a lot of people call me anal retentive.) 🙂

                      Right now, mine are in a shoe box. LOL. THIS looks like a wonderful way of storing them.

                          Linda, you really must get the magnetic Art Bin storage. It is the best. ;)

                            I have a very small amount of the thin metals, 99% of my dies are sizzix chunksters that take up a ton of space.

                            Heather, that looks fantastic! If I start accumulating more of the metal, this is the road I'll take for sure 🙂 *thumbs up*

                              I don't have so many chunky dies, but I have about 20 sizzlits- those are difficult to store in a way that you can see what you have.

                                Yep gona label mine just like your Heather. I was contemplating it but wasn't sure if that was the way to go, you have convinced me!

                                The Art Bin magnetic storage is awesome!! You definitely need this if you have many thin dies. And if you don't, well then, you need to get some more, LOL!!!
