I have had a similar storage system. After about ten years of
struggling with keeping the repros in some semblence of order, I noticed
that the shelves in my cabinets are adjustable. I took out the bottom
shelves to leave about 3 and 1/2 feet of free space.

Many elementary school supply companies carry these great cardboard
boxes with hinged lids(about $10.00)that hold visuals vertically. They
also carry giant cardboard folders (about $2.00) that can be purchased
individually for filing of visuals in categories.

I have three boxes with about five folders in each box in the bottom
portion of my storage cabinet. The boxes hold Shorewood-sized repros.
Now I can keep most of my visuals in order, and they are fairly easy to
access. The boxes were expensive, but it was worth it! (I've used mine
now for five years.)

If you do not have cabinet space, the boxes measure about 8" deep and
can be stored up against a wall. My larger repros. are stored rolled up
and labeled in the area above the boxes.

I hope this idea helps in some way. ANN
