I usually keep my in labeled plastic bags, and put all of the bags in a box (though I'll probably need a new box for next year).I don't label mine but I keep them in a very specific order so I don't forget what they are. Although I do agree that custom medals throw off the uniformity, it doesn't really matter as long as they are actual medals, and not ribbons(I'm looking at you Cornell 4th-6th). Ribbons really throw everything off(although I'm sure SOUP wasn't considering going down that route).Do you guys not label your medals??? Smh.
I just tend to like uniformity. It helps with organization. I can see how people would like unique medals, though.
