Project Postcard Organization

by Mel in


I've always loved postcards. Inexpensive souvenirs and pieces of art mainly to admire or use as decoration. Occasionally I would send one or two, or more if I was on vacation somewhere. There were the New Year's Greetings and the Mid-summer Greetings as well.

But last year, when my stationery obsession started to truly snowball, I started to buy postcards at an alarming rate for the specific purpose of sending them to people for pretty much no specific reason other than to just send them.

I bought a clear postcard file to store them. But that got full pretty damn fast. So I got another one and separated them: To send and for keeps. This was the result.

To send

To send

For keeps

For keeps

Flipping through "For keeps' is fun, but the "To send" was getting out of control and I decided that the only solution is to get more folders.

The black on is for the keepers, the pink is for spring, the yellow for autumn, the green for summer, the blue for winter, and the clear for non-season specific postcards. After a few hours of very happy sorting and organizing, I was left with this.

That's a lot of postcards. And soooooo much potential storage space. Look at all of those empty pages!
