I’ve been keeping all of our seed packets in a shoe box for a while now. They weren’t organized in any way and it was time consuming to sift through the messy pile to find a particular seed packet. I needed to figure out a better system so I decided to DIY a seed organizer. Using things I already had on hand, I created this easy setup to keep the seed packets sorted alphabetically. Here’s what I used for my seed organizer and how I did it.
TOOLS AND MATERIALS:
- shoe box
- thick paper – I used a magazine
- paperclips (optional)
Time: 20 minutes
First, I measured the width of the shoe box. Once I had the dimension, I measured, marked and then cut the length that I needed from the magazine pages I had set aside.
Next, I created accordion folds with those pages until I had enough for all the seeds. The great thing about this method is that you can space out as much as needed the folds.
Once inside the box, I attached the folds together with paper clips but tape would work just fine, too. I used tape on the ends to attach to the box.
I placed a packet in each fold – two per row and here it is! Works so much better now.
