Getting Organized- So how did I do?




Everything left on the desk is something I am working on. The real key was this little contraption:


Have you seen these? Basically an oversized shoe box with dividers? I am using this to temporarily house my miscellaneous type cards before they go in their respective archival storage device. My Sports Divas are in there, former Kane County Cougars (my local minor league team) players (Miguel Cabrera, Josh Beckett, Dontrelle, Willis), F1 and Indy Racing, Deron Williams, Former college players I like (Brady Quinn, 2004-05 Illini Basketball, etc.

Nothing like getting a little organization in your collection to take stock of what you have, what you need to move and why you collect in the first place.

Before pictures.

The organization part of the hobby is the parttakes up most of the time for me. I feel like I never quite get there. Strangely, now that I'm older, I think it may actually be the part that I like the most (all of the sorting and stacking and putting into the cumputer and whatnot).

Is there a specific database software that you use or did you make something up yourself?

I am not yet at the point that I have a current sytem. Archival and storage is one thing. Detailed inventory is another. Not ther quite yet.

I used to keep a spreadsheet of every game used and auto, but I sold of 90% of them and haven't updated that or added new addition. I should though.
