Oh my What Have You Guys Started - Organizing Stamps

Postby LauraC » Jul 24th, '14, 10:00 pm

I decided to try to get organized. We have a bunch of clear report pockets & Report Covers at work that are destined for dumpster due to going to electronic records. So after looking at Samara's post and looking at Christine's stamp solution about stamp storage, I thought I'd give a whirl with some recycled products.

I spent a couple hours cutting the report covers down to size to slip into the report pockets. Slid another piece of the report cover (the black back portion) into the center. Then I slid a piece of white paper on each side of the black cover.

Now I'm in the process of stamping all my stamps so you can see them. Wiping them clean (yeah, I know you don't have to) and then affixing them to the clear report covers and sliding them into the pockets. I have a double side down and a single side done. I haven't made much of dent. I'm hoping this goes quicker. I abandoned the idea of dating each of the stamps.

This really going to be a work in progress for awhile! I'll take some photos in a day or so

This is one of my last and most procrastinated tasks in my scrap area! I have the envelopes, and I just need to decide on "categories" and sort them all! I had them all in a nice basket but dumped them in one large bag hoping it would force me to deal with them - hasn't worked so far! lol :P

Off to check out the other posts you mentioned - I'm determined to get this done this summer so I fist bump you in solidarity Laura!

It sounds fab Laura! :) It's so much easier to use the stamps if they are properly organized! (Mine aren't... :) Hoping they'll be one day... )

Can't wait to see!

Maybe if I see enough wonderfully organized stamps, my CD stash will organize themselves into shape! :)

Love that feeling if being organized.

You will have to post pictures when finished.
