Okay, I am moving out soon (within the next year). So I want to start organizing everything. One thing I have a problem with is photos and memory items (IE: notes, dried flowers, birthday cards, etc). I have quite an abundance of them. I have gone through them over and over again getting rid of everything I can dare, and thinking of every possible solution to organize them in a way where they are functional (easily viewable) and attractive (cute, compact).
I have tried scrapbooking but first I have too much, and second they get big fast. Plus I want something I can see things before opening it (if thats the way I go).
I hope some of this is making sense. I am just at a loss and this seemed the closest thread to answer my question. Any and all help is MORE than appreciated. Thanks!!!!! Kiss

I'm not really grasping quite what you want so forgive me if I'm way off base with these suggestions.

I would try getting a 3 ring binder and some plastic protectors. Full sheet size all the way down to business card holder size. You'd have a full range of organized flowers,cards, photos and such you could look at. Put in dividers or have several binders.

Or I would just go to walmart and buy small clear stackable boxes...

I hope I helped some!

for the dried flowers, you can do dried flower arrangements. I have dead roses lining the top of my entertainment center by my cd player. it's a lovely touch.

I have all my notes in a box, so they're really not all that out in the open but I have four shoe boxes on the side of my room with notes in them. You can decorate the boxes so they're cute and classy... I have yet to do that. Granted, you'd have to open them to look at the notes, but it's a good way to organize them.

You could make a "photo wall" and put up all the pictures with double sided tape as a mural type thing for your wall once you move out. You could also put up cards and stuff that reminds you of the time the photo was taken. (Like pictures of your birthday party next to the cards you got that year). Or buy tons and tons and tons of photo frames and make a cool wall with them... but that could get expensive.
