Cartridge storage solution

My cartridge collection has grown so much I was looking at a solution for this which would also be portable. And I found one. But before I share you have to hear the full story how I discovered this right ;) . Though I ofetn don't behave that way I am still a woman after all LOL. So here's the story
Since I am going on a swarm and plan to go regularly on a crop with my sweet friend Michelle, I went on her saying first to Tuesday Morning (what's with me and Tuesday's nowadays. I was born on a Wednesday. Should have named the blog Wednesday wonders - ha ha. ) Anyway found some very nice deals there would you believe. Cropperstation which are usually about $35 - for just 9.99 or 14.99. and blings and chipboards and stickers just packeted together. Some really nice KY memories and american craft papers for 3:99 - oh yes.
Then on the way back I came to Home Depot to grab some handy dry wall tape -thanks to Sassy. (BTW a deviation - if you are using as magic mesh then remove almost immediately - do not let it sit on it for too long as it will permanently cure or that's what the guy said). I decided  to also look in the tool box or storage section and here's what I found for $29.97. This can store easily about 60 or more cartridges with the books and keypad overlay's. It opens with a cantilever type and it even has some support at the back so that the box does not tpple over. It's Husky 22" cantilever box. There are 2 varieties almost similar but I decided on this one as it looked more compact and the inside even though shorter in height was more wider. There are 12 storage bins inside and I removed almost all and left just 3 inside. I will use this to store some embellishments. Btw there was one more red colored one which was just $9 which would also have done the job but I liked this one better as it looks stackable and opens up with support instead of toppling.
OK without much ado here are the pictures. Look how my 2 cuties posed for the picture.

Thats a great storage idea! At the moment I dont have storage problem, as I only have 11 cartridges, including the 2 on the gypsy, and 4 of them dont have a box, either cos they are a solution or a seasonal cart :)

And I love loev love your 2 sweeties posing on the pictures :) How cute!!
