I'm a lover of organized things.....take my closet for example.
I organize my clothes according to color, then according to dress/casual, then according to what it is - shirt, skirt, dress etc.  All the clothes "face" the same way, and all the sweaters are folded (by color) and stacked neatly on the shelf above.  If there is one thing that gets on my nerves (at least at my house where I have to live in it) - it's clutter!  I despise clutter. (I learned a little secret several years ago --- if everything is picked up and the floor is swept -- your house will look clean even if there is 1/2 inch dust on the furniture -- well maybe not quite that much!)
Funny it's taken me this long to get around to organizing my scrap paper. 
I know some people don't save every last scrap, but I do.  I'd like to know HOW MANY cards I've made out of the scrap basket alone?!?!?
Today I got down to business with this basket that's about to be overflowing....starting with sorting out all the plain pieces of paper by color...

The printed paper got the same treatment...

I found paper I didn't know I had in this process, and now that it's all safely back in the basket according to color it won't take me near as long to find what I'm looking for next time!
