There are so many different ways to store your cardstock sheets in your classroom. Depending on how much you have to store, the function they will serve, and your classroom storage space, you can sort them by color or by student groups. The beauty and function of your storage system will add to your classroom decor.

Sturdy file folder organizers (#ad) are perfect for storing your cardstock sheets. I have to stress that you use the durable plastic options instead of the cardboard ones. Once your papers are sorted in these, it is easy to just reach in and pull out the sheets you want. I used to use horizontal stacking for my papers but the drawback of that was that I always had to lift out the whole stack or had to thumb through each page because only the top sheet was visible to me. That's why I'm recommending this option first... it's the best.
Mailboxes (#ad) are perfect for larger sheets and larger amounts of cardstock sheets. They come in so many sizes so you can find the right fit for your space. I prefer the wooden ones and the plastic ones. It can get messy so you may need to turn its maintenance into a classroom job for your students.
Table-top stands are preferable for having your storage unit right on your desk or close by. I have found the strongest and most durable storage unit that is built specifically for cardstock reams. This unit is a Rubbermaid brand, so it will be quite an investment from your budget, but it will last. I love that each sliding pocket can hold up to a ream and a half of cardstock. The rounded base of each pocket keeps each stack neat.
Stands for cube shelves: Some stands are small enough that they can fit right into your cubed shelving like this one. This makes the cardstock sheets easy to pull out and the tray stand will keep your stack organized.
Pocket charts are great for saving space if your classroom is small. Some are made to go over your door. Only use these if you have a small collection of assorted cardstock. Choose a pocket chart with many pockets so that you would not be tempted to overload the pockets. The weight of cardstock can really add up fast causing the pocket chart to tear.
