Card Overflow

In Cards on October 28, 2009 at 10:51 am

My card system is starting to implode from my recent and not so recent card-making marathons.

The collection of cards for this year’s and next year’s birthdays no longer fits into 1 organizer. Recently, I had to buy a 2nd one.

The card drawer is nearing its capacity limit.

Don’t be deceived by the cleanliness. Most of the cards are just stacked on top of each other. To find just the right card, I have to dig through the entire stack. For example, in the far right corner is a stack of cards: Baby Shower Thank You cards on top of Christmas cards on top of Baby Announcement cards.

In an attempt to organize, I converted an old photo box into a card organizer. It too is full.

My recent subscription to the Card Maker magazine is NOT helping matters.

So, I have made the decision to place some of my cards in my Etsy shop in the hopes of removing some of the clutter. 

This will of course make room for more cards.

If anybody has any better ideas, I am all ears. I’ve never had so many cards stockpiled and am puzzled as to how to store them until it’s time to mail them out.

  1. Sorry, no tips to help organize, but I love sending cards too, and I have a drawer full as well – and that doesn’t count Christmas cards. :) Mine are sorted by occasion in file folders in a desk drawer. It’s great to send snail mail cards!

  2. A bigger dresser, that’s what I’d do. (Love the cards!)

  3. Looks pretty good to me. I guess cards store better than yarn and fiber. Flatter. Ha, easy to hide any mess.
