Default How do you keep track of PW papers?

I have not been able to figure out how to make sense and remember all the names for the papers I buy. How does everyone do it? Inquiring minds want to know.
I get working on things and they all get mixed in together. I keep all PW stuff in it's own bin, but don't know how to tell them apart.

I try to keep them in their original clear sleeves, even the scraps. Doesn't always happen and I do have a drawer full of PW scraps.

I also tuck everything into the book or package it came in. However, if my scraps get mixed up I don't worry about it. All my PW stuff is in one place and I don't use other papers with them, so if I don't remember what they are I always know they came from PW and I can use them.

I keep mine altogether in a large bin. No, not full but I'm working on it. Usually I don't buy any other paper but PW so that's not too much of a problem When I do I keep it in another bin. Judi

I do the same things - I keep the smaller packs in a basket that only has PW stuff in it; the 12x12 I keep in the original 'books' or packs they came in and I have a few shelves in my paper rack that are only for PW stuff.

me too. All of my paper wishes stuff is together. Books in a cabinet (nothing but PW), packs in a drawer, keeping all packs separately together (make any sense?) I do wish they would have a list of all of them somehow as it would help me keep better track of what I have or what I need. Other papers are in a "stacker" in my closet. All card stock is filed by color in another "stacker"--I'm not denying that there are scraps all over to be organized, however.

I also keep mine in the clear sleeve they come in. The sleeves have the papers in little squares on the back of the pack and if I run across a paper that is mixed in with others I only have to look at the back of the sleeves to see which pack they go in. For the card kits I keep those in a gallon zip lock bag to keep those together. They sometimes get mixed on the shelf I keep them on so if I can't find the pack at least I know they are PW.
God bless

If you have Open Office or Microsoft Excel, I have a fairly comprehensive list of PW Paper packs complete with links. PM me with your email address and which format you need and I'll send it to you.
