I am in the midst of organizing my spellbinders and it has made me realize just how many I have. Sad thing is there are still a lot on my wishlist. I don't think I should have started but I am making a list so I know what I have.

Yes, organizing is dangerous...not for showing us what all we have, but everything we DON'T have and NEED! At least you can buy things you don't already have, freeing up your money for things you really, really want. (I'll PM you my address and tell you where a key is hidden. Feel free to come organize my scrapmess whenever you want )~Judy
I just can't keep mine organized..they end up getting thrown in a 12x12 case...cause I'm afraid I'll throw them out by mistake.
Then I have to go back to put them all in their rightful place...I get really worried that I've misplaced them. I just can't put em back after I've used them. Is there any hope?
I dont know where anything is when its clean but when there is stuff everywhere I know where it is... its like oh ya that ruler is under that pile of scraps and my scoreboard.... or that ink pad is in the paper saver under the fabric with my 12x12 albums on top of it lol
I love to organize. The more things are organized, the happier and more productive I am. Sometimes I will get caught up in organize and just organize everything.
My wish list and scrap stash is in the Scrappypedia/Scrap Stash app.
I bought 3 new items earlier in the week (punch and die cuts for my Big shot) and while I was standing in line to pay I just scanned the bar code into my phone and its in my scrap list. Took about 5 seconds each and I've got it - finished before I got all the way to the register to pay.
I just love organized and having a list keeps me from buying duplicates. I'd be lost if I didn't have them in my phone app.
I also keep my papers and cardstock and everything organized. I just like it better that way.
Kara sent me an organizer for my Tim Holtz distress inks. I love it and I use it.
I'm an organized scrapper, everything has its place and goes back there once its used, this allows me to get a lot done in a short period of time. I love organization and use it throughout my house, my ds had to learn it, this summer and I wish my dh would learn it. I was not born this way when I was about 5 yrs old I shared a bedroom with my sister and we had been told to straighten up our bedroom.
She went straight at it and I dilly dallied and continued to play with my toys, well she became frustrated, so she lured me up to the upper bunk bed and wrapped me up into the bedclothes and pushed me off the bed.
Luckily I wasn't injured, but we were both stunned and I still did not clean up the room. That night I fell out of bed unto my junk and woke up screaming and the next day I cleaned everything up and I've never been messy since. Truly, I learned its so much easier to just put it away. Yesterday, I visited that same sister and her house was a mess. I guess we flipped flopped.

I LOVE organization....I get a kick out of organizing and regularly organize my scrap stuff (as well as other stuff)!
I'm with Stick....organizing allows me to buy more stuff! LOL!
When I organize, I also purge, getting rid of that "beautiful" paper that I was too nervous to use and now, wonder what on earth I bought that for? It's ugly! I sell some stuff in our LSS annual garage sale (made $130. last year) and donate some stuff to our local children's hospital....
My recent organisation of my dies found some duplicates LOL no joke I have now got 7 brand new die sets here to sell because i found them duplicated in my stash hahaha. A list a great way to um avoid my mistake LOL
