How do you organize your papers?

I am forever going back and forth with my papers and how best to organize them. No matter how I do it, I feel like so many of them get lost in the 'pile' and never looked at.
I was curious. How do you organize yours? By color or by pattern? Or do you have them all lumped together?

Organize? What's that!? I think Ashley does it by color. I wish I could organize!

I do mine by color

it does make it a bit easier, so I'm not having to go through the whole stack.

great question!
I really need a system.
My current "system" is one box for stuff that needs to be scrapped (pics and such..) and one box has scrapping supplies (and it's overflowing).

I'm making my Christmas list EARLY this year!! Biggrin
And some type of organizational scrapbook thing will certainly be on my list!!!

I bought a plastic 12x12 storage box on ebay and it's clear. It is so nice to be able to see my colored pages (or atleast the edges of them) I try to keep them all organized by color. First the plain, then the patterned papers on top of those. My scrapbook space is so limited and my supplies are so few, it's not really a problem to stay organized.

I want this paper organizer they have at hl which by the way is on sale right now and includes a dust cover, I have not room for it. I think the shelf has like 10-12 shelves and its the wire racks. So I have 2~ 3-drawer 12x12 units. I just bought the 2nd one today and I have yet to organize my paper but I plan to have 1 drawer just for cardstock and then I'm going to try to sort the paper by colors. I may be going back to get another box organizer.

I use three Cropper Hoppers for my 12x12 paper, and they're organized by color for all of the solid paper. The patterned paper is in its own hopper (the first two have solids) and I kinda have it organized by gender and events, but it's a very loose organization. For my 8.5x11 paper, I have some plastic magazine storage files I got at Target for a couple of bucks each, and that works out really well. I have a TON of paper and actually need more storage than I have (just don't have the room for it).
