I put the boxes into a large storage box, and stick the storage box away.

That gets the small boxes out of the way.

I store the boxes seperately from the pens (especially after reading the thread on how the lining in an Omas box destroyed its pen)

 

Can you locate the link to this as I've not read this...very interesting!

 

Are some types of boxes more suspect for pen damage than others?


So, what's your point? (Mine is a flexible F.)
