The Mega Metals are also depotted into 8 pan, but everything else stays in singles, including the special packaging e/s.
The quads drive me crazy though because I have about 15 of them some premade and some put together by moi, & they stack fine, but then the stacks are always falling over. My decision there is do I organize by colors that can be used in coordination to do a look or organized by colors, greens and purples, etc. It makes the OCD flare up I tell you. If those darn Z palettes were not so tacky I would buy about 10 of them and go to town depotting and putting it all together by color tone to make it easy. Then I would have clear lids, uniform palettes and stackable. But since the only one I have has a cheetah print on it, ten cheetah palettes? I would feel so Hollywood. Then, another tough decision, if I depot all the regular e/s, what do I do with the MES? I am scared to depot those--they are prone to shatter I read. I guess it is easier to ponder on these issues than to try and narrow down lists from upcoming collections without many swatches.
