Sharing an Organizing Tip

A while back I received a sample pack of five Pocket Tab envelopes by Avery. They measure 5 1/8" x 8 5/16". I gave one to Tom, one to Alexa, and stuffed the rest in my desk drawer because I didn't know what I wanted to do with them. I recently found a great use for these (and I asked Tom and Alexa for the ones I had given them, LOL). When I create, I cut things that I end up not using because they didn't work or I change my mind. In the end I have a little pile of bits and pieces which are hard to store (and then find again later). Now when I scrap, I put these pieces in an envelope and store the envelope with the collection I happen to be using. They're also great for when you're down to just a few pieces of chipboard or other embellishments. Just thought I'd share this little tip because I know everyone is always looking for a way to be better organized. :)

  8. I'm just now seeing this post thanks to your comment on "Scrapbook and Cards Today"'s post about what to do with scraps. As I was reading it, I thought, "Hey, I think I got those as free samples in the mail too." Sure enough, I look in my office drawer and there they are on the bottom, not being used but I couldn't throw them out because they were so cute and looked so handy! NOW I know what to use them for! Thanks for the tip! :)
