Hi all! Its been forever and im glad to still see the same old folks that encouraged me and got me thru this thing when i first got it two years ago! Im glad everyone is well! The school year is over, and iv been hit with crappy christies layoffs so u may be seeing alot more of me lol. N e who, I have a question about storage....These boxes are taking up entirely too much room. I was wondering how u guys store ur bags and flanges? My mother suggested sandwhich bags, but i dont know if that would compromise the integrity of the bags....i just keep everything in the box it came in. What do u guys think?

I kept all my supplies in sandwich bags as well, yay for mommy!!! I did that for easy deployment of changing. I would have one bag for the change and the rest kept all the supplies etc. I have had no problems with them. Just make sure you take the correct bag to work for lunch ;) Oh look, mommy packed me a hollister lock N roll for lunch.

ok this is what i do and it takes up very little room
I have six pouch boxes, and in each box i have everything i need for a change, so its always ready.
When i get the stuff, i take all the pouches out of their boxes and condense them into fewer boxes, you can get two boxes into one, i take all hte flanges out of the boxes and all the other stuff, and i have it in one box, along with my towel squares.

I keep extra boxes under my bed and in my bathroom I keep 1 box of wafers and 1 box of pouches (I have a big drawer to store in there).

I keep everything in their original boxes because...if there are defects...I want to know what lot they came from so I can send back the bad ones (and not use them) skull It's only happened twice in ten years but ya never know!!
