cookie cutter storage - Page 2

post #16 of 29
I was just thinking about this topic today!! Here's a picture of how I store my cookie cutter collection. I like the variety of drawer heights on these cabinets (three different sizes). This picture was taken in summer '06. If I took a picture today, you'd see piles of cookie cutters on top of these storage cabinets that still need to be put away. Except my drawers are full so I'm going to start moving my holiday cutters out of these storage cabinets into big sterilite containers and store them in another room. Once you get your system in place, it's not too much to keep organized and you can spend more time making cookies! icon_biggrin.gif

P.S. Just went to the Wilton tent sale yesterday in IL (fun!!) and picked up a bunch more cookie cutters / sets at 50% off! thumbs_up.gif

Tscookies - Wow! How many cookie cutters do you have?

Hmm, I've never counted ... pretty many ... I like them in all shapes in sizes. Now that you mention it, maybe I should ask one of my kids to count them this summer. I should've mentioned that the top right cabinet isn't filled with cookie cutters .. those are fondant cutters, gumpaste supplies, etc.

we peg boarded one of the walls in my kitchen/dining area and I have them hung there. Soon I'll need a second wall...lol

Maybe I should look into some of those drawers...

I also store my cutters in ziploc gallon bags, sorted by holidays, themes, etc.
Then I put all of the bags into a large plastic storage bin. Problem however,
is now there are too many BAGS to fit into the storage box (which is really
large) Hmmmm sign of an addicted cookie cutter collector, or what? LOL

Right now, I have mine hanging in my garage. I took pieces of heavy duty twine and hung them crosswise and slid the cutters on them. There are several rows, and they are by categories. It's nice that they are on the wall on space that would be unsed! My pans are also hanging in my garage! We are having a garage sale in a couple of weeks, and I'm hoping that will get my garage organized so I can reorganize all of my cake/cookie stuff!

I bought my storage cabinets several years ago at Office Depot. Unfortunately, they don't carry that particular kind anymore - the plastic is similar to clear acrylic which I really like (not frosted plastic). There are 4 cabinets and the ones on top have 8 drawers, the ones on the bottom 5. I love the idea of hanging up the cookie cutters for storage, too!

I have mine stored in plastic sun tea jars. You can see what's in them and carry them around. Plus, they look cute in the kitchen.

I've been using these stackable storage drawers.

They stack as high as you want- similar to a file cabinet. I have two stacks side by side 6 drawers high. I'm ready to start another row! What's great is you can stack them anywhere. I have mine inside a closet. I also used these in my son's room for legos. I stacked his in a corner of the room.

Edited to say....these come in different sizes. I think I have the 16qt size. You can find them in Target stores.

Love the drawer ideas! I have got to do something. Rummaging through a plastic bin at midnight for the right cutter is not working out too well!

I have a closet in the dining room that is just used for junk. I think I'll hijack that later this afternoon and move in some wooden storage shelves that are sitting empty.

The ideas are flying now!

I store mine in gallon ziploc bags, sorted by theme/occasion. We moved just a few months ago, so I've been attempting to put the older ones in a box to go to our storage rental. The newer ones/upcoming occasions are kept in bottom of my armoire.
