Keeping your sugars full or empty?



* Tin Boxes keep packets from damage by ants and humidity.

* Shallow Trays are ideal to display sugar lumps.

* Plastic cabinets with drawers make packets easy to find and keep them undamaged.


* You cannot read the label or identification number on a lump.

* Storage becomes a problem with quantity.

* It is not easy to add to, or arrange the collection.

* Viewing them is not easy.

* Tin boxes make it difficult to see packets and keep them flat.

* Has to be kept in a dry area as moisture affects sugar and discolours wrappers.

* Sugar is combustible.(Remember the amateur rocket fuelled with sugar.)



* Both sides of the packet can be seen.

* Different size pockets are available to accommodate most packets.

* Pages and packets can be moved around easily.

* Lump wrappers can be filed back to back or with a backing insert,
using both sides of the pocket.

* New pages can be added where necessary.

* Packets and wrappers are protected by plastic pockets and do not get knocked
or damaged by constant turning of the pages.

* Cigarette card album pages come in a variety of pocket sizes.
They are less deep and wasteful of space than A4 pockets.
(Cigarette card albums are available from stamp shops.)

* WH Smith phonecard pages fit almost perfectly, 20 or more to a page.


* Lump wrappers - the original design concept of a 3 dimensional object is lost.

* Sugar sticks are an awkard size.
(They can be stored in Collecta/WH Smith/Flash Foto or Country Yarns.)

* Price of plastic pages varies.

* Be careful which pages you use, some are not designed for long term storage
of packets, and can cause discolouration.

* Phonecard album pockets are not always big enough.
