    Hi all, so I imagine I am not the only one here who keeps a collection of park maps, my question is how do you store them? I just have mine in a shoebox which isn't very satisfactory as they're all different shapes and sizes, some only fit in longways etc and trying to find maps for a particular park is a pain.

    Does anybody have any better storage solutions?

    Cheap, giant picture frames maybe? You could just put multiple in a frame for the big ones.

    Just in a drawer. But I always take two, and stick one up on the wall in my room at my parent's house.

    I hardly ever look at them anyway

    Neatly stacked in a big posh Universal Studios bag at the moment.
    Been thinking about upgrading to a binder/folder with plastic wallets/slippery fish for a long time, at the expense of work's stationery cupboard.

    They're currently on a shelf in a Parc Asterix bag. Or if I've been lazy, they're on top of a pile of something somewhere else on the shelf.

    I have most of a drawerful, though I do often wonder why. I keep them in a few theme park plastic bags and sell the odd duplicate on eBay from time to time :)

    I have these goony binders with sleeves in them that I use to organize them by region. Keep all the parks together, parks within a region stay together, closer to home is in the black binder, further is in the white one. Personally I love it, can't wait to expand them this year!

    Mine are in a shed I've aptly named the 'World of theme parks' down the bottom of my parent's garden

    Some people here would s**t if they saw all the maps I've used once in a park, scrunched up in a back pocket before being ditched at the exit, not bothering to grab a stack of them on the way out.

    I used to collect maps but now I just don't care for them.

    When I was collecting them however, I just put them in old shoe boxes.

    Hahaha that is a 100% fair comment, I shall look forward to my end-of-season award.

    Having said that it does seem to have stirred up some controversial opinions - I mean how could you throw away those maps with the adorable dragons on!?

    For my next topic I'm thinking - what system does everybody use for filing their theme park receipts?
