I think it's harder to break up sets when you mostly have sets. More than half of my stamps were singles, not part of any set. So there was always some sort of category sorting that had to be there. Breaking up my sets just formalized it.

I also rarely use a sentiment on a card. That eliminates a whole huge category. In fact, when I broke up my sets I got rid of most of the sentiments that came with them because I never used them. I only kept those few I could see myself using, and that I really liked stylistically.

I can see how keeping track of a multitude of sentiments would be important. How you would want to use the right Happy Birthday for any particular card.
I have come to the conclusion that buying craft supplies and actually using them are two separate hobbies.

My system is very much like Mary in NC. I can't break up my sets. I organize by themes and stamp sentiments onto a Rolodex. I keep a gallery of the cards I send in iPhoto with the name of the person so I don't send a similar card to the same person. I use a simple app called List Master to keep an inventory and I keep a wishlist within that app. It's not feature laden like Evernote but it works Ok. I think the way you organize is whatever works for you. It should only be fun. If I were not retired I'd just be throwing it in bins.

I've thought of this but it seems like a lot of work and I'm not sure I'd use it. I did this with my ink colors and never look at it.
I, too, sort by category (birthday, anniversary, kids, etc.). I don't know what Evernote is, but before I broke up my sets, I stamped each stamp from a set onto a 5 x 8 notebook paper, onto which I indicated the stamp set name, # and price. Mine were almost all Stampin' Up, since I was a demonstrator at the time.
