    Do you do it alphabetically all together or alphabetically by brand. On a shelf/rack or in some kind of box/container?

    Mine's much less organized. I have a set of stackable boxes that lock together. I put divider trays in them, sorted by type of flavor.

    Vanillas
    Creams
    Citrus
    Berries

    and so on... 12 flavor types divided, some hold 2 types, if I don't have a lot of those, like Tobaccos. I don't have a lot of those, so I toss nut flavors in them, as well.

    Not too difficult to find things, really, but they're overstuffed now. Need another set.

    I keep mine in several places. Two large toolboxes and a cardboard box for the overflow. They were all supposed to be in one tidy toolbox, but recipes happen, and new flavors need to be acquired. :p I have so many different sizes, I can't sort any better than by type in each box (creams, bakery, fruit, candy, and "other" like drink flavors), but I have a strange brain that allows me to remember where (approximately) each flavor is. It's not too much trouble finding things, unless it's a flavor I don't use a whole lot. I've also just recently got a bunch of round stickers that I can write the flavor on and stick it on the bottle caps, but that only works for the bigger bottles with the flat caps, and it's a HUGE job that I've only just started. All the pointy capped ones I just have to remember where they are or search for them when I need them, but since I pretty much know where everything is generally located already, it's not a chore.

    My biggest nightmare? Some gremlin breaks into the house one night and scatters all my flavors willy-nilly and then I don't know where ANYTHING is. ;)

    Nice-sized bookcase here.
    Each shelf a different vendor then individual flavors in alphabetical order.

    Just alphabetically on clear 1 Lexan nail polish rack.
    And 2 home made Lexan racks.
    Plus a bunch of extras on shelves that won't fit anywhere else.

    One box for the flavors I use often (kept cool/dark and handy)
    One box for larger bottles (to refill my favorites) in the freezer
    One box for flavors I find useful but use rarely
    And the box of shame for rejects (stashed faaar away to avoid having to confront my bad decisions. Lol)
    Within each box, roughly by type (fruits, creams, nuts, etc.) Within each type roughly alphabetically.
    It looks chaotic to observers, but I know right where to look for any given flavoring.

    Separated by brand. Alphabetized within brands.

    I have a numbered list and little circle stickers with the numbers on each bottle so if I need to find something I just look it up on the list then grab that numbered bottle out of the locked drawer they are all stored in . I have lil ones so it stays locked.

    I basically keep my flavors in small plastic tool boxes and group then in fruits/tobaccos/deserts. No real method to my madness just what works for me.

    I have mine in a set of cabinets alphabetically on stands. I am in need of more space.
    I like the idea of by brand then in alphabetical order. [​IMG]

    I organize by brand. I would need a bigger office space, tons of shelving and signed divorce papers to alphabetize my collection lol. These draw storage units do pretty good for me but still hunt a minute to find what I need and I add more constantly.

    I think the best route would be these if you have the space

    Ebay had them just look up makeup storage.

    Do you know approximately how many flavors it holds?

    With the little dividers I added, maybe just under 200. Without those, or even with something much thinner, like cardboard, probably 200, or just over. They come together as a set of 2. Currently, they're uncomfortably overstuffed, with over 200 (with divider trays inside still). I'd like another set, but that would beg to be filled, LOL.

    It'll be tight. I'm right around 200 flavors but most are 10mls.

    Oh that will help! I have several 30's in there, and I store my 120's in a cabinet, just to refill smaller bottles. Without any dividers, though, or use some thin cardboard, like the thickness of, say a file folder, you'd be good. I may just have to do the same to help them fit better, rather than buy another set. That only gives me permission to buy more, LOL. Yes, a storage box CAN be an enabler :D

    Lol right now I throw empty bottles in the open areas. Keeps them handy and might help your flavor buying .

    I'm definitely buying one though. Thought about checking online but something that size probably cost a lot to ship

    Hello red. The stands are made of dollar tree foam board and hot glue.
    I am going to make another to fit the whole cabinet. They cost me $1

    No Target nearby? booooo That sucks.

    Maybe try Amazon, eBay, or that container store place. Or even Walmart, or a hobby shop. If it's what you want, it's super handy. I think I paid around $8 for it last year, or so.

    Closest target is about 35 minutes away. Not too bad. I might just go there. I have to get a bday present for my daughter anyways.

    LOL, I have to agree with that. Nice, not having to thump or squeal your way through a store.
