How do you store your GBA carts?

I would like something decent to store them in so that I can be reasonably sure I won't lose them. They are small enough to lose (especially with kids). It would be nice if Nintendo would have used a clamshell for them because they are so small, but they like the money saving option of using the same box as the GBC games, I'm sure.

But this sucks. I have over 20 carts, and need a good storage method. Anyone?

i bought a pouch to hold my GBA and games. Its like a camera case with webbed pockets and dividers inside that hold everything.

I store mine in a climate-controlled humidor to prolong battery life.

I have one of those pouches, but it only holds 3 or so.

I was thinking in terms of the old storage systems they had for NES games, etc.

My little guy has a GBA and has accumulated about 30 games, and as the collection has grown we've upgraded from the little pouch to a bigger pouch to the Phat Pack bag to the messenger-bag style carrier we're now using. We bought it at a Gamestop-affiliated B&M for @ $15 -- here's the Amazon page for the one we have (not in stock there, but the blue one is):

We like it, holds all his games along with a few of the most-needed manuals, the GBA, extra batteries, car cord, trap light.

Looks nice. I would really like one that displays stuff so that I don't dig for it. But it looks like it don't exist

Go to www.ncsx.com and check under GBA Hardware. The clamshell cases are PERFECT and are exactly like you would expect. I have around 80 GBA games and all of them are in these cases. There's no better way to store your carts.

I bought the little sleeves that came out a while ago... They have little grooves so that you can stack them together. They're decent, the games don't slip out, and it does cover the cartridge hole. I went for the uniform color instead of the pack that comes in 6 garish colors...

Just picked these up. Probably the same thing you are talking about. Not crazy about the colors, but the price is good (about .50 ea. shipped).

Best Buy has them also. They are 2.99 and I think you get about 6 of them. I need to get some more since I just got Zelda and hopefullly AdvanceWars for Christmas. They also have better colors, red, yellow, orange, green, etc.
