I have a sense that a majority of stampers don’t catalogue, and it’s simply that if there’s a thread about cataloging, catalogers tend to respond.

I would like to know your purpose for cataloging, is it so you keep track of different companies? That would make sense to me. Or if you have a large collection, that might make it easier as well.
I don't catalogue my stamps either. I did make a spreadsheet of my inks, refills, matching markers, and cardstock (SU). I shared it with the other ladies in my demo group & they liked it. I need to do it for my dies and embossing folders, because I have accidentally purchased duplicates.

I've tried cataloging my stamps and never used it and 25+ years I've only bought a couple of duplicates. I can't tell you what I ate yesterday but I know my stamps. I've broken up the sets and store by how I think/use the stamps. In each box is an index of the stamped images so I can see what is in the box.

I started stamping on blank paper and placed in a binder about 25 years ago. I did this because back then stamps were not sold in sets.. bought one at a time. I had over 1000 stamps up until about a year ago when I donated a couple of hundred to an assisted living home. I have been buying stampin up sets in the past 2 years, and only occassionally need one of my old single stamps. I too know pretty much every stamp I have... My stampin up demonstrator, Felecia, gave us a little ring of the cardstock in colors, naming them all.. and I started the same little squares (about 2 x 2 inch) with ink pads. My craft room may look messy to others, but I pretty much know where everything is and what I have. I retired in 2013 and spend even more time in my craft room. Actually, stamping and paper crafting has changed (for the better) in the past 20-25 years... and is getting better all the time ! Love paper crafting.

Tracy - could you show me a picture of your spreadsheet looks like? I'm trying to set up one for my stuff, but am having difficulty.

I have a ring binder which has copies of all my stamps roughly by subject matter. I say roughly because sometimes I can't decide if that is a cute cat stamp, or a halloween stamp, or maybe a weird christmas stamp, etc etc. To store the stamp I use Avery Elle stamp pockets labeled by size --small, medium, large-- and numbered in order of when I got them. The pocket number is written next to the stamp impression in the binder.

You know this makes me look very organized, which I'm not usually. But then I think I spend far more time organizing the darn things than I do making cards.

OMG! I just realized I can create a notebook of our home improvements. I was going to physically write it out... & I just mentioned to my mom early today about creating a spreadsheet... but hello! Evernote to the rescue!

Thanks!
