Organize it!

This was supposed to be yesterday's post, but I got swamped... will announce winner shortly

No card today, but I am doing a write up on organizing as promised.

Lately, I've truly became a clear stamps collector... To be honest, I'm still a wood mount kinda girl, but seriously, if you have to move - you're essentially moveing wood blocks. Plus, right now the clear stamps is really giving you a bang for your buck. Often times 5-8 stamps for $17, which normally cost $7 per stamp.

As I got more and more clear stamp set, I'm started to run out of room. At first I was very lucky to run into Willy N' Way booth to buy their binder and 6X6 album page that has velcro to keep my stamps, but since they stop making them, not sure if they're still in business.

Then I run out to Michael's and buy all those $1 stamp from their bin... now I'm really running out of room... so after watching Jennifer McGuire's blog video, I'm totally inspired! (Here's the inspiring video for your enjoyment.)

I ran out to Office Max and try to find these sheet protectors:
For Baseball Card size, you can fit 12 of the $1 bin sets in there.

For the 4X6 photo size, you can fit the smaller sets of stamps.

Of course, if you have the full size sets, you can use the full sheet protectors:

And if you have any straggling ones, I used the 3 pocket ones:

You can do some DVD size ones as well. Sky is the limit until you ran out of pages. Haha...

I really need to get mine organized... right now they're all in a draw. I think it be a lot easier to use the binder method. Thanks for the inspiration :)

What a great idea. I also have a lot of those Studio G stamps and I need to organize them like this.
