Sticker Organization

Oh man. I've been so unproductive this week.

Well, not really. I ran errands. I cleaned. I worked every day. And I started doing Blogilates for an hour every night.

But I've been unproductive craftily. I didn't even share my desk yesterday, because its just a pile of things that need to be put away! How un-fun is that?!

Part of my cleaning last weekend did involve my crafty supplies though.

As Tracy would say, I defunkified my stickers.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures before...but it was a disaster. Stickers everywhere, no order, no anything, just a messy mess of stickers in a tote. Then, I found a huge pile of alphabet stickers in another folder.

Obviously, something had to be done.

First, I went through all my alphabets and paired up ones that were the same. Then, I found this old binder.

Each alphabet, or alphabet set (letters that were the same font bug different colors, or extremely similar in design) got their own page protector.
I love that I can just flip through the pages to see what I have. I'm really excited about it for Project Life!

But, that was just the alphabets. And there were all of the other stickers to contend with.

I took all of my stickers out and sorted them into several categories. Each category got put into its own baggie.
I based the categories on how many stickers I had. So Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Fall, Halloween, and Christmas all got their own bags. As did travel, baseball, animals/random, characters, stars/flowers/jewels, friends/girly ones.

Then, I put all of the baggies back into the tote that they came out of.

And that's it! Now I actually know where all of my stickers are! Next up - organizing my scraps!

What organization projects are on your to do list?

I love the binder idea!
I have to admit that I still haven't cleaned my office at all since I mentioned it on Tuesday.
But I did get the car cleaned!

I really, really need to clean, not just straighten, but clean in here!

Wow that is great!! My stickers probably look worse than your before shot (if you had one!). I have had them organized in cute organizers but now they are everywhere! I love that binder.
Good for you doing Blogilates. I checked it out! That's awesome. You have been productive in many ways!!

Our sticker organization is about the same. All my alphas are organized by color and in one box, and all my other stickers are organized by theme in large baggies!! But they are in a box that I keep under my bed, slide it out, grab a baggie and slide it back!

Great job on defunkifying your stickers Katie ;)
I store all my sticker in a binder similar to what you do.
I was going to post them in one of my missions ;)
