I'm not sure if you have the same problem as I do, but I love journal cards.
Well, that isn't my problem, the problem is I don't have them all in the same area.
So when I am looking for a perfect journal card, I have to look in a few different spots.
I had some in a basket on a shelf in my large cabinet.
I had some on my desk in smaller containers.
I had some in a lower cabinet.
Plus the one in my large cabinet was on a higher shelf, so I would just toss cards back in there...I'm a little on the short side and couldn't see in there.
So I finally thought, enough is enough, I am getting this under control.
Of course the first thing I did was
Gather....I gathered up all of my journal cards.
Oops I missed this one...I was finished sorting and went for another look and found a few more, lol.
Speaking of Sort...that is the next stage.
Sort likes with likes.
Tags together, journal spots together, recipes/index cards together....you get the idea ;)
I had noticed I had other items in here that didn't belong..bags, envelopes, but we will get to them on another day.
When we were on our last little trip, I ran into Ikea, just for these containers.
I think it was on 2peas that a few ladies were using these containers to store their Project Life supplies in. I thought they would be perfect for this...plus they were under $4.00 :)
Doesn't this just make you smile :)
I love to organize, it just makes me happy to see everything nice and neat and in its home.
I put the clear plastic container in this breakfast tray. With the weight of the cards, I think the plastic container may not be very stable. So this fit perfect.
Starting at the center back-Large recipe/index and journal cards.
Center front- reg sized recipe/index cards and journal cards.
Right back- tags
Right front- PL tags and other vertical journal cards.
Left long section- tags and stamps.
Because it is on this tray I have room at the very front. I put this container of tiny tags in at the right and then found this clear packaging that fit perfectly on the left hand side. I put some tiny tickets in there.
I held a lot of my sets together with tiny clips.
Well for all of you that are more of a visual person....or can understand my babbling better on video..I made one just for you ;)
I am sure this is going to be so much easier to find what I'm looking for.
If nothing else, its more pleasing to the eye ;)
Hope you have all had a creative Sunday :)
