I used like a filing cabinet. With sections like winter, spring, summer, fall, love, letters, guy stuff, other, etc

I used a really big three ring binder, with page protectors , which I labeled for the different types of stickers. I can find what I want quickly, and put them back when i'm done, and the binder is on the shelf next to my albums.

I use the three ring binder system too. In addition to page protectors , I use photo pages and baseball card holders (all designed for use with three ring binders). These will hold a variety of sizes very nicely.

I do this with my alphabet and number stickers. But, never thought of doing it with my other stickers. Thanks!

I also use a 3 ring binder with clear pocket pages. Each pocket holds a different theme -- seasons, alphas, journaling, family, pet, etc.

I have 2 of those 3 drawer organizers with the deep drawers. One of them is smaller than the other so I have them stacked. I have the smaller one labeled seasonal/holidays...baby/children....misc.....and then I have the bigger one for all of my alphabet stickers and the packs of stickers that are too long to fit in the smaller organizer.

the 3 ring binder is a great idea! I would have never thought of doing that! Thanks for the idea!

I just got some of those cube organizer units from Micheals (the white ones), which can be stacked, etc.

I decided to take up three drawers for my stickers. Because I didn't want to be digging for them in each of the drawers, I got clear plastic zip lock bags and sorted them by themes:

1. Celebrations - all birthday stickers, graduation, etc.
2. Love - wedding, valentine hearts,
3. Family
4. Vacations - beach stickers
5. Easter
6. Halloween
7. Misc.
8. Foam (the foam stickers I have)
9. Glitter (like the diamond shaped gems, etc.)

I think I had a few other themes/categories. I JUST sorted them out TODAY!! So I don't know how it will work, but I'm excited that they will be easy to reach so to say.

Have fun organizing your stickers!

I bought a 13x7 expandable file for my stickers today at HL. My binder was getting way to bulky to carry around. The exandable file is great!

I used an old shoe rack to hang them (see a pic in my gallery) and I used binder rings to sort them by theme.

I'm still ol' skool. I have my stickers in a photo storage box. I used purple and green notecards to separate the categories and alternated each color for easy findage. You just have to find what works for you - lots of great ideas so far!

I put mine in a big letter size envelope and store them with the patterned paper for the same theme. I like it that way then I have all the stuff together.

Since I'm a total newbie I appreciate reading all these things from those more experienced.
I've been keeping the few I've got loose in the box with one of my kits. I have to make sure all this stuff is out of reach of my granddaughters as they opened my first kit and tore up a sheet of vellum stickers. Can't wait to get out and into a place of my own where I won't have this problem. I'm aiming for an efficieincy apartment and there's no where for one of them to hide whil they do something like that.

I started with organizing all of mine in a 7x13 file...but then I accumulated too many so I moved to the binder system. I separated them by theme in binders and put them into page protectors . I have just recently changed again because I had filled 5 binders (I think I have a problem) I now have all of my rubons and stickers organized by theme and hanging on 2 Clip It Up s. They hold so much, but I still needed two, crazy I know, but I absolutely love them. It is so easy to see and get to everything. Goodluck organizing!
