If you do PL, can you get one year in one WRMK album? I still haven't done December but I think it will all fit in one album. I hate the idea of having more then one per year; the albums will take over the house in a few years!

It is possible, if you use very little inserts and no bulky embellishments. My problem is that I love including inserts

Nope. 2012 was my first PL year, and it's definitely 2 albums (WRMK). I used some inserts - maybe one every 2-3 weeks...well, maybe more like every 2 weeks. Not a lot of bulky stuff like Thickers or brads, but I do have quite a bit of my son's artwork in there in 8 1/2 x 11 page protectors.

I am a bit worried about albums overtaking our house too. In addition to the 2 PL albums, I also have 2 (in progress) regular LO WRMK albums for 2012. I have the 4x2 Ikea Expedit, and 7 of the 8 spots have albums!

I have all of 2012 in 1 WRMK albums with a few inserts as well. The album is full but not too much.

The Spa Fresh WRMK is my first 3 ring album and I'm doing PL for the first time in 2013, so I'm hoping it will all fit in one album.

I have all of 2012 in one of the BH Signature albums (made by WRMK). I have a lot of insert pages but no bulky embellishments. It's super full but, everything fits.

I have my PL in one WRMK binder but I also do not do it weekly, I do 2-4 page spreads based on a month, because my boys are older and not nearly as willing for pictures and my husband and I are boring, I don't think I would have enough for a weekly approach. In fact, I'm thinking of adding 2013 to it as well just because I have so many albums already and I still do quite a few regular pages and put them into albums as well so I will for sure run out of room for albums in my house lol

I have 2012 in 1 album with some inserts. I didn't use a lot of bulky embellishments though. The WRMK 3 ring is the perfect size.

I used 3 albums in 2012, 1 BH and 2 WRMK. So, for those of you who fit all your PL in 1 or 2 albums, how many page protectors do you fit into one binder? (without a lot of bulky items.)

I didn't use a lot extra but I could not make it fit in one. I had to use two WRMK albums. Mine aren't bulky either. That is one of my main reasons not to keep doing it. Takes up so much space.

I hoped to fit the whole year in one album, but totally failed. I had to move on to my 2nd album after 24 weeks.

Not even close. I'll be lucky if 2 will work.
