Looking for a cheap and easy way to organize your seeds? I finally found a winning solution.
I say “finally” because this is what my seed collection looked like for years. Such a mess. And incredibly frustrating to sort through. Getting my seeds organized had been on my to-do list for quite a while, but I just hadn’t landed on the right fix yet.
Well, the solution finally hit me over the weekend, and I didn’t have to buy anything to tackle this project.
I just pulled out some of the berry boxes that I have stashed away (tell me I’m not the only one who keeps these), and I created dividers for them, so I could sort my seeds by category. Here’s a closer look at what I did:
I cut some card stock sheets up to create the dividers (I got four out of each 8.5″ x 11″ sheet).
Then, I traced around the top of a file folder to create tabs. After cutting them out, I used my label maker to make a snazzy label for each one.
Now, my seeds are arranged alphabetically (which makes my Type-A heart happy), and I can easily find what I’m looking for.
Being a planner type, I made some extra dividers to accommodate my seed collection as it grows. And if I ever outgrow the three berry boxes that I’m using now, I’ll just add another. Don’t you love when simple solutions end up being the best ones?
