    I use just a regular 15 cent floppy binder and those pocket pages you can get at any hobby or card store. Sometimes I use individual sleeves and then put THOSE into the pocket pages for extra protection.

    And I end up using those full-sheet size sleeves for jumbo cards and oversized cards. But they're really vulnerable to bending still, so I'm thinking of sammiching them between cardboard too.

    For most of my cards, I keep 'em in a huge red tin with Ash, Misty, Pikachu, and Brock on the front, which has about 500 cards. My holos and valuables, like my awesome first card(Base Set Pikachu) are in a huge binder. My decks are in handmade Shaymin deck boxes, and finally I collect the tins and put the wrappers from the packs in them. What? The art is cool, and the wrappers make selling them easier..

    I used to do that, but I left them out one day when I was organizing them and my mom threw them all away...

    That sucks. Thankfully the only Pokemon things that my parents throw out is the Lucario tins I have to buy just to get the Stormfront packs...

    On a side note, all I need to do is get a Zapdos pack from Arceus and a Raikou pack from Unleashed to finish my collection of Gen IV packs!

    I thought I was the only person to keep the packs... I have all of the DP on pack wrappers aside from 1 undaunted, don't remember which. I have well over 200 of those wrappers

    I just have them the long side down (like a bag of toast where the slices are super thin). They're organised first by type (Grass, Fire, Water, Electric, Fighting, Psychic, Colorless, Metal, Darkness, Trainers) and each subset is then sorted alphabetically by Pokémon name (energies come first, then everything starting with A, then B, etc.). If I have multiples of same Pokémon, they're then listed from oldest to newest.

    They're at the back of my drawer. I rarely need to do anything with them.

    I group all my card by type, and wrap a rubber band around each group. And I put all of that together in a Nike shoebox. My deck is put aside from the type groups.

    I keep them in my DS box and my decks in my collectors tin. I sort them by Energy, Rare, Uncommon , Common and Fake/not legal. I might get a binder some though and sort them in the same way.

    Definitely binder for me, no matter what. I keep all cards of the same pokémon in one (sometimes 2 if I have a lot) sleeve(s) by when they were released in the game. I personally prefer to organize it by type and then keep pokémon, trainers/supporters, and energy separate.

    Whoa, I assume your name is pronounced "scisorlicious"? :D

    So I tried the binder thing, and I found it extremely difficult to take out all the cards whenever I want to play (my sister likes to play too, so I need to extract two decks worth of cards from my collection), so I ended up just putting them all in various deck boxes instead, with every card pocketed up in a nice penny sleeve.

    Ouch, man, that's got to be the worst way to lose a collection of anything!

    I wouldn't put more than 2 cards in a sleeve (1 on each side) for 2 reasons 1) you run the risk of braking the sleeve, and 2) you stretch out the sleeve so that if you only want 1 or two cards in that pocket they will be very loose. (I used to do the same thing, thats why I know

    My super rare cards go into sleeves then into toploaders. From there I like to keep them in a cardboard box thingy specially for trading cards. Everything else goes into a binder.

    Yeah, that's a good point Palbert6393... normally if I have more than 5 or 6 cards per sleeve, I'll put them in a separate one so I don't run into that. I need more space so I can put each separate edition of the card in a different sleeve... >.< breaking the sleeve hasn't really been a problem for me though.
    And @Sajuukar, my username is pronounced "(whichever-way-you-pronounce-scizor) and then "liscious" :P
    personally, I say a long 'e' sound (so it's like "SEE zor")

    2 huge binders, one for the awesome holo cards and the other for everything else, organized by type. However, I gave all my cards away to my sisters last year :)
