Storing Acrylic Paints

I probably have about 100 bottles of acrylic craft paints and special finishes. I store them in square baskets I bought at the Dollar Store. The baskets are fold-able to flat and about 2 inches taller than the paint bottles. The full baskets can be stacked and take up little room under a table. I separate the paints by color and, more importantly, I store them upside down, after I dab the bottom with its paint.

At a glance I can select the color I want and they last longer without separating because by storing them upside down, they are self sealing. I also use rubbing alcohol to clean my table of any dry paint spills and it does a great job!
