Chelle, this is such a great way to story and keep track of seed packets. I started doing it a year ago. I can now easily find the seeds I am looking for. Thumbs up

One of those pages is also useful if sending seeds into a seed swap.

This probably sounds goofy, but it's an enjoyable way to keep them as well; sort of like having your very own seed catalog. I particularly like being able to flip through the pages and browse through my seeds at any given time. I couldn't do that when they were all in a box; I'd have to dump it out and the cat would have my packets strewn all over the house! Not only would he bat them around, he'd also pick them up, carry them away and hide them! Hilarious!

For me, the most important reason to keep them contained at all times is; a compulsion to exercise control over the possibility of having poisonous items hiding throughout the house. My cat's never been a chewer, but it only takes once!

Chelle, what a great idea! (smacking side of head)--WHY have I never thought of that?? Thanks so much for sharing for us organizationally-challenged types!

Hope it helps, Sandy.

I still cringe when I think about how my seed boxes used to look. I spent more time avoiding those boxes than I did planting seeds! Hilarious!

Yes, exactly!

That's the best method I've tried and found to be successful. I stuff mine too full for alphabetizing; one new packet added means moving all of those after it. Whistling
