Organizing...

I have seen lots of tutorials on organizing your digi supplies...but those of you that have a lot of things how to keep track of what you have? Do you have a printed book with a sample of each thing or just remember it?

Also do you have certain items in multiple places, like bears from a camping kit also in a zoo category. I am new to digital and need to get organized...

thanks!

I keep everything by theme or store. I have a Disney folder that I keep all my Disney kits in, but other than that they are organized by store, then by designer. It's not the best system - I wish I had a way to search them all for 'red alpha' but I haven't figured that out yet.

I am the most scatterbrained organizer but I do know where everything is...
I keep my Disney stuff together in a folder with subfolders of characters and rides, then just regular Xmas kits, Halloween...etc then all other "misc" kits are in a different folder, then templates and alphas that didn't come with a kit...
I do have a printout of the preview of all the kits I have so if I'm looking for something in particular, I can look through my folder to find the right kit to use.... which reminds me I haven't printed out for a WHILE!!!!

I use Picasa 3, which is free from Google, to organize all my digi scrap stuff (and my photos, too!) I keep all my kits together by designer, but you can go through and add as many tags as you like to each item, or whole groups of items. I mark every Disney item with a Disney tag, and then a lot of specific tags (paper has a paper tag, a color tag, if there is a pattern, etc. Ribbon gets a ribbon tag, a color tag, if it is straight or curled, etc.) It's a bit time consuming at first, but I'm so glad I did it, and it's pretty easy to keep up with now if I do it as soon as I get a new kit. Then you can search through Picasa and it will come back with everything that fits - a search for "paper red striped" will come back with any red striped paper in any kit I have, all shown together for me to scroll through without actually moving any of them from their individual kits. I love it! (Mickeyhead seems to be my most frequent search these days!) It's pretty easy to start using, there are some great tutorials on the web, and did I mention that it's FREE?!?
