Storing memorabilia

I have gotten rather lazy lately when it comes organizing my memorabilia.  Rather putting it in the file drawer I was stuffing it into the desk organizer.  Bad scrapper!  :-(  So this past weekend I spent some time organizing my memorabilia.  The first thing I had to do was clean out the desktop organizer.  In my eagerness to get this task done I forgot to take a 'before' pic.  :-( You will have to trust me when I say it was overflowing with stuff!  Nonetheless here is the after photo.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!
Once the memorabilia was removed from the desktop organizer I began to file the memorabilia in large Ziploc bags. 

I originally used the label on the Ziploc to identify its contents.  But this time I added a little tab on the right side corner for easy reference.  The bags are then organized in chronological order. 


I am using this file drawer to organize the memorabilia.  The file drawer came with a kit I order from QVC many moons ago. 

For easy access I keep the Ziploc bags in one of the drawers.  Hopefully this will encourage me to keep organize the memorabilia and not fall back into my old habits.  :-(  

I hope you find this information useful.  Have a fabulous weekend and Happy St. Patty's Day!

As always, thanks for stopping by . . .
