stationery organization

how do you organize your stationery? if you're anything like me, you have nine billion cards [and 18 billion envelopes] stashed in various corners of your home, and when you want to send one to someone it takes a while to track everything down.

SO, i've started [trying] to be more organized about it. i keep my supplies in this handy accordion folder:


i've got different sections for different things. so far, this is how i divided them up:
- blank cards
- personal stationery
- card scraps
- thank you cards
- occasion cards [birthday, wedding, etc.]

plus i try to match envelopes up with the cards when i stick them in, so i'm not shuffling through everything trying to find the right size. and about the card scaps -- i cut up pieces of cards i receive [if i'm not planning to keep them for sentimental reasons] and upcycle them by using them to make my own cards down the road. i've given some totally awesome semi-homemade wedding and baby cards over the years :)

how do you organize YOUR cards?

  1. Was just going through my friend's blogs and thought I'd stop in & say hello! I used to have a hard time organizing my stationery.. I kept upgrading and upgrading to bigger boxes. I finally bought these awesome big metal bins from Urban and they're keeping good organization of my cards, for now! ;) Hope you're doing well friend! xo.
