New Year Organizing

There's just something about the start of the new year that inspires me to get more
Today I will share a couple of organizing ideas I worked on for my craft studio.
The container above was on sale for 9.99 at Joann's.
It comes with separate organizers inside and it's designed to hold 4 x 6 photos but it also works perfectly for our Picture My Life cards.
Each individual box holds a complete set of PML cards...SCORE!
Now I can have all my sets organized and in one place!
I stamped the front of one of the cards to create the label.

Another little gem I picked up was this budget organizer that I found at a discount store for only $2.

It has great pockets inside and spaces to write income and expenses.
I had to give the front a makeover using our
Brushed papers and coordinating vellum stickers.
Take a look...

I stamped the label on both projects using the
The book came with a nice plastic cover which will protect the paper on the front. 
The photo below shows how transluscent and pretty the vellum stickers are.

Now if I keep up with filing my receipts each month, 
tax time will be so much easier!  
Cheers to being organized.

Oooh, you are so organized! Adorable notebook, Lynn, and those tubs look perfect for separating and storing all those PML cards. I so need to do some organizing, too. My room is a disaster.
