My son recently started collecting Pokemon. I would say he loves the game, but I don’t think he knows how to play or has even tried to. Does anyone really play Pokemon? It seems that Pokemon is not a game at all, but a way to collect and trade cards. It’s like a modern day baseball card collection. With that being said, my son’s Pokemon collection keeps growing. He started storing his cards in the tin boxes that they came in, but now, after Christmas and his birthday, his collection has grown to include quite a few tin cans. He asks me daily to help him organize them. After a senseless meltdown (from my son, not me) about not being able to find a really important GX (priorities right?), I decided it was time to take matters into my own DIY hands. “Good thing mommy likes to organize and create, right?” I have come up with a fun solution for our own DIY Pokemon storage box.
Let me show you what his OLD Pokemon storage method looked like.
Mommas, tell me if you can relate to any of these?
The first two pictures are typically how you would find my son’s Pokemon displayed; all over the floor or stacked in tin boxes.
The last picture was my attempt to try to “display” the Pokemon cards in an old spice rack. Unfortunately, my son decided he didn’t like it.
That’s when I decided I would find a way to store his Pokemon cards in one place.
Here is the main item I found to organize my son’s Pokemon cards.

I also purchased a set of large craft sticks that you can find HERE.
- Add the dividers to the storage boxes. Use a Pokemon card to decide where to hot glue each one.
- Once you have added all the dividers, grab your craft sticks and we are going to attach them to the bottom of the box and the back.
- Hot glue at least three sticks attaching the bottom of both of the boxes. I added one in the middle too.
- I added two sticks to the back for extra support
- Add your Pokemon cards to the box and enjoy an organized Pokemon set!
This DIY Pokemon storage box has been such a lifesaver!
