Ok, I don't have a HUGE collection of punches but I do have enough that they are overflowing out of my current storage solution for them... a freezer size ziplock baggie lol. So I was wondering... how do you store all your punches?

I have mine in a drawers in a plastic rolling chest the kind you get at Target, Walmart,or staples.
They are out of the way and all I have to do is pull open a drawer and look at my collection.
I know a lot of people put them on rails / curtain rods attached them to the walls of their craft room, but that doesn't work for me since my "Craft room " is my dinning room.

I have a lot of mine on Bigel towel rods from IKEA on the wall above my work station. Love having them where I can glance up and grab what I want. Unfortunately, I'm now out of room for additional rods and have to store a lot in drawers under the work station! lol!

This is a photo of my original two. I now have 6 rods on the wall.

I store mine on drapery rods, attached to the back of the door of my craft room. This way, they're easily accessible but, at the same time, out-of-the way --- not taking up valuable wall space, which is at a minimum. BigGrin

I purchased a clear over the door shoe organizer from Walmart. It works pretty well and holds a lot of punches. Good luck in your decision. There are lots of options.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. They are all great BigGrin . I don't technically have a craft room (yet) I just have a section of my dining room where I store all my craft stuff ( for the moment) I love the rod ideas but until I have an actual room I can dedicate to my crafting I can't do that .

I just use a large plastic storage container from J's. But I am running out of space, too.

You might try one of the "really useful" boxes that you get at staples. They hold quite a bit of stuff, especially the 9L ones. I use one of those for most of my embossing folders. Here is the link

I use the smaller one for my cards. They even have very small ones for brads, eyelets, etc.

I don't have that many punches. I have my punches stored in an old ck rack that I got at Goodwill, and spray painted white. I think I paid $2.99 for it. Things have changed up a bit, and now all of my border punches sit on top of the cd rack...I now have it hung on the wall instead of on top of my expedit, but you could easily put it on top of your desk next to the wall.
