    Any tips for storing these horrible tiny things?

    My collection was small for a long while as I built up my GBA collection, and everything fit in a case I bought on eBay. But now that I'm starting to focus my attention on the DS family, I'm dealing with loose carts in a plastic tub.

    I really don't want to use the original cases. I usually buy loose carts used to save $$, so I don't have cases for many games. Plus they just take up too much room.

    For GBA I use these, they work great. I can fit 4 just perfectly in a flat plastic box, and they stack neatly on a shelf. But for DS/3DS, I'm at a loss...

    I'm using one of those right now. I don't love it. The games are very difficult to snap in and out.

    I suppose it's probably my best option though, if I don't want to use original cases. Maybe I'll reconsider, or try another brand. I can always label the spines to give me an idea of what's inside.

    Thanks!

    That Club Nintendo case is fantastic! They sure are expensive though.

    Someone should make a knock-off case with that same form factor.

    yes, it is fantastic, a bit prizey, there are several versions of them..

    but i think it worths the price.. specially because i really like animal crossing and wanted to add it to my collection..

    it's weird they didn't think of making a pokemon one.. (it was perfect since i only got pokemon games besides animal crossing)

    18 games per case is pretty good. I'll think about it :)

    I use this. It has a stupid place for SD/Micro SD cards, but it's cheap, free shipping, holds 22 games, and if you buy two you can combine two of the non-SD card pages into one uber 24 game case.

    Edit: Also comes in white, but it a few cents more.

    That's what I'm using now. I just find that games fit very tight. Nice idea though, mixing/matching to create more useful cases without the wasted SD slots.
