### Why are magnets stored in attracting positions?

The simple answer is that it takes much less time and energy to store them in the attracting potions. If you tried to store magnets in non attracting positions they will attempt to push themselves away from each other or align them self to the attracting positions of the other magnets. If forced togeater in non attracting positions over time they could become demagnetized or the weaker ones will realign to the polarity of the strongest magnetic force.
