There are so many little bits and pieces that I want to incorporate into my Project Life album. I had to get organized so I could keep up with it all and remember to use it. Thought I'd share a few tips to help you too!
Iris boxes are perfect for keeping up with little odds and ends. I get the boxes at Michael's when they're on sale (they're super cheap - maybe $2 regular price). I also separated like items (arrows and tabs) and put them in their own Ziploc baggies.
I have like items separated with binder clips in the basket - alphas, word/phrase stickers, labels, tabs, and stickers. This makes it easy for me to grab whatever I'm looking for and quickly look through my stuff.
I use a medium CTMH organizer box to keep up with my cards. Binder clips help me keep cards separated. Organize into whatever categories make sense to you - I have "specific" cards - Travel, On the Blog, Summer, and Currently, grid journaling cards and core kit 'filler' cards, 'phrase' and 'quote' cards, and lined and unlined journaling cards. I keep all the filler cards and journaling cards grouped together by core kit name so I can remember which kit they came from. I haven't tried organizing by color, but that would be another way to do it.
I actually changed this on Sunday - I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut some cute little tabbed dividers. I just drew a rectangle and added some decorative tabs on the top of it. Now I'm using those dividers to keep everything organized into categories, instead of using binder clips. I just wrote the categories on the tabs. Quick and simple!
Here's what my Cameo file looked like - I used a similar method to make 4x6 dividers.
I'm a bit of a... collector of different pocket page configurations. I use them all though! :) I put all the pages in an extra binder and used a post-it note to mark where each starts. That way I can quickly flip through and see which page I want to use. I have full 12x12 pages and insert sizes (smaller than 12x12) in this binder. I have a ton of Design A and Design D (since I bought the Blush kit bundle on HSN), so I keep them in a second binder.
Do you have any great organizing tips to share with me? Let me know in the comments!
