I would constantly be deciding is THIS the right blue, or THIS one. Valuable time was wasted in the search. I would always have to go get a piece of card stock and match it to make sure it was the right one.
Then, I got this bright idea while browsing through Wal Mart, one day. I saw a plastic file cabinet for about $20. I thought....HEY...this would work perfect. So, I bought some hanging files and came home and got them all set up with the names of all the SU card stock colors.
When I had a couple of hours to spare, I sat down and put my file folders tabs in with the names of all the colors of my SU card stock, alphabetically!
Then, each night while watching TV I sat and started filing all of my card stock scraps. It took a couple of nights, but I wasn't doing anything, anyway, so I figured I was making good use of my 'down' time.
Here is what I came up with:
Of course, if you use all different kinds of card stock from a lot of different companies, you may have to file just by color and put in dividers or something.

I love looking for ways to make my stamp room more efficient for me, without spending lots of money!
Have a great day and don't forget to take time to Paws N Stamp!!
