Storing Seeds Using a Binder

Store your seed packets in a binder. It allows easy access and organization so you always know what seeds you have on hand.

Now that the Holidays are over I find my thoughts looking forward to Spring when the sun warms up the ground and softens it. 

I dream of days spent in the garden overturning the dirt prepping it for planting.

I dream of little seeds all planted in their rows waiting for the right moment to spring forth and begin the trek of surviving and growing into a beautiful plant bursting with fruit.


Oh I can sit and dream of spring all day long if there weren't still so much to do with a home and family to care for. Instead of dreaming though I've been focusing on planning my garden and I decided to start by updating how I was storing my seeds.

If you've been following this blog for awhile you'll know that originally I was storing my seeds in a black file box. You can read more about it >>HERE

It was a great way to store seeds but it didn't allow me to organize the seeds in a way where I could easily see what we had. Consequently, I ended up with a lot of tomatoes and beans. 

After a lot of research and looking around I decided that using a binder was the way to go for us in order to stay on top of our seed stash.

I chose a zippered binder so everything is contained and can't accidentally fall out. It also has the accordion filing system on one side which I like because it will be a good place to hold our finalized garden layout plans.

All the seeds are divided into sections- vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers. Behind each divider I placed trading card sheets for holding the seed packets.

I really like this setup and the trading card sheets make it so that I can place important info with the seed packets so that it can be easily seen. Also if I can see that I'm out of a certain seed I can put in an order for that seed.

Here's to a more organized garden this year.
