So lately i have been adding to my ps collection, problem is, I don't know where to put them. In the stores i see them on the tiny hanger that pinches them but i don't have anything like that. Where should i keep them?

In your pocket!!

I fold mine into nice squares and keep them stacked in a drawer.

Just fold them up and store them wherever you find it convenient. I have mine sitting on a shelf in a folded pile.

go to bed bath and beyond. where the storage for kitchen stuff is, pick up those bamboo boxes - appro.x 6 in by 3 in. I have about ten of them holding about 150+ pocket squares divided by color. works like a charm.

I have about 30-40 squares and just fold them neatly into a shoe box

Get a pocket square carousel rack with clips (like in the store). With mine, it is much easier to see all the squares at a glance.

When I stack them in any type of drawer, some of the best square choices are hidden.

Whether or not it is worth it depends on how many squares you have. If you have more than 9, I would get a carousel; however, should you do so, be careful, as the temptation will be there to quickly fill the entire carousel.

Another thought...

With fewer squares, a reasonable choice might be to get some of the scarf clips for a carousel (your favorite haberdasher might even give you a few of them), and then get a cheap (think: Target or SteinMArt) hand towel holder. Hang your squares on the clips on the holder. It'd be small and unobtrusive with all the functionality of a larger pocket square carousel.

In a pile under my bed. I usually just reach in and pick something, hoping its not alive.
