Does anyone have a great way to organize divided page protectors?? I've got quite a collection building and I need a way to keep them neat and easy to access.

Nope, so far I have kept mine in the packaging, so that I have an idea of what is there. I will be watching this thread for suggestions.

I put mine in an old Crop in Style PSB (Paper Sticker Binder), with dividers by type of protector.

I have two methods, one is a surplus D-ring binder/album. I can't recall where I got it but it is slightly thicker than the WRMK/AC/Doodlebug albums. I keep a good assortment of protectors in there.

I also have back ups that are still in their packages. I buy them on sale because just one vacation album can blow through them pretty quickly. Those are all in a large 14x14 box that once contained a gift blanket. It came from a department store.

I keep them in WRMK binders, and use part of the printed cardboard packaging as dividers between styles.

I went a little overboard buying protectors - I have four binders full.

I also use an extra binder and the BH dividers labeled with the different styles. So easy to flip to the design and I want and get it out vs. looking through a stack of packages.

Another who uses an extra Dring binder. It keeps them all organized and easy to find what you want (and to see when you're running low of a particular style).

I keep my divided and regular page protectors in a D-ring binder as well.

For all the divided styles, I do need to get dividers. I waste time flipping through trying to find the style I want.

I store mine in an un-used D-Ring album. I use a cheap 12x12 with a piece of p&p in it as a divider between different styles.

I store mine in a small plastic paper carrier. I labeled the plastic dividers that came with it with size (4x6, 4x4) or by Design. I also have the large and small envelopes, 5x7 and a myriad of others. They are filed in order of size in the carrier. This has worked really well for me.

I store mine in a spare WRMK D-ring binder and I use tabs to divide the different styles.
