Wow, everyone has such great ideas for staying organized. I wanted to be organized right from the start and set up a system and now I don't like it. As I started using kits, I realized I had deleted the creater's name from the files so now I have to open their TOU to find out whom to give credit to.
Also I organized my kits by theme such as; Christmas, Summer, Clusters, Quickpages, etc. When I went to do a speed challenge it was awful trying to find the designer I wanted or the right element or color.
I would like to go back and do mine like Els as hers sounds quite organized. It will take some time but I will work on it little by little. I like the idea of copying my order info into notepad and putting that in the file.
I store my digital scrapbooking kits on an external hard drive as they take up too much room on my computer. My personal photos have been organized by family, animals, landscape, events/dates, etc and I like them that way.
