I have never been accused of being an organized person. In someways I'm really thankful for that, but it wasn't serving me well in the realm of seeds.
Until recently, I kept all of my seed packets in a really pretty box. A box which I often lost. Yeah, I'm quite the chronic loser.
So, if confronted with seed displays while out and about I'd commonly buy stuff I had at home or, even worse, I'd freak out and not buy something because I thought I had it.
SO, WHAT'S THE SOLUTION!?
Well, I saw this awesome idea on "Gardening by the Yard."

First, I grabbed the mystery box of seeds from under a pile of plastic pots in the garage or somewhere similar

This was looking pretty good! So, now what?
Should I carry this binder at all times?
Should I memorize it page by page?
Should I just forget the whole thing and take a nap?
NO! I should do data entry... (lame)
So, I entered everything into MS Excel and made a spreadsheet (gag!)
The end result is that I am now able to print off a very portable list of my seed catalog.
HEY! I can probably even load it on to my phone so I'll never be without this valuable information.
I envision a lot of efficiently purchased seeds in my future!!!
I still have all of my flower packets to do, but Pa'Sha to that!
