Anyone have any creative ideas on how to organize cartridges? I'm getting a huge collection here and can only see me purchasing what I already have - I'm thinking by way of a quick reference to find certain fonts, designs, cartridges, etc. Help!

Welcome to the message board!

I understand how you feel. I have about 50 cartridges (I am very selective about what I buy). When I get a new cartridge, I make a color copy of the back of the box (enlarged %165), a copy of the overlay (165%), and a copy of all the layer pictures from the handbook (enlarged 200%). The overlay picture is put into a plastic protector sheet and I add a tab, all other papers are punched for a notebook.

I have a large 3-ring notebook where I put the information. I have all of my cartridge images in a notebook with tabs showing the name of the cartridge. I keep this notebook handy for a reference.

I have a Gypsy that I keep set on "linked cartridges". This also helps me know what I have.

Have fun creating and be sure to post your projects!

I think some have seen have used the Seagull tote. I personally have a gypsy and then I have no need to drag all my carts along when going somewhere. This certainly works WONDERFUL !!! I love my gypsy !!!

I have my Cricut in a regular duffle bag, not the fancy one made for the Cricut. I think I purchased it for like $10. I cut a couple pieces of cardboard to put in the bottom to sturdy it up. I have plenty of room to spare in the bag for about 10 cartridges. If I am taking all my carts I also have a Generations brand Create-A-Bag Crop Station Rolling tote. It even has room for paper, supplies, embellishments and more things that I would need take along.
