How to Organize Your Growing Planner Stickers Collection

 As I was doing a little research for this blog post, I discovered rather quickly that my sticker collection could hardly be called a collection to the serious sticker users!  So, my suggestions are more for casual users, but I will also share ideas I found while searching online.

I try very hard to reign in my desire to "buy all the stickers," and that is mostly due to the fact that I don't have the storage space to get what I would really like to get my hands on!  Actually, I could buy lots of stickers if I wanted to throw them in a drawer, but the point is, we want to be able to easily view the stickers and find the ones we want quickly.

My current stash consists of 3 Happy Planner Sticker books, some Carpe Diem stickers for tabs, a 2-3 Dollar Tree sticker books, and few random sticker sheets from Etsy shops.  Not a large collection, and so far easily contained.


This wire organizer, similar to this one on Amazon (not an affiliate link), which was designed to hold mail, is what holds the biggest part of my stickers.  It sits on my desk near my planner supplies and works very well for me.

A 4x6 photo album is another good way to keep up with your stickers.  I use a small one that I found at Dollar Tree, but more serious users might consider buying bigger albums to hold their stickers.  Most sticker sheets are bigger than 4x6".  Mine holds the remainders of nearly empty sticker sheets that I have trimmed to fit the album.



Similar to the idea of using a photo album, full-size notebook binders are also a great idea.  Page protectors would hold most sticker sizes and inserts that hold business cards could hold the smaller stickers.  As a matter of fact, you can find full-size photo inserts that hold a variety of the most common photo sizes, such as 4x6, 5x7, and 3.5x5, that could manage all of the more uncommon sticker page sizes.

Another idea is to use a desktop file folder organizer (or a filing cabinet if your collection is that large) and organize your stickers into categories.

There are a number of plastic, portable storage cases/boxes that can be purchased to store your stickers, and also photo boxes (or shoeboxes) would work well - just use cardstock to make your own dividers.

The ideas are endless - with all the different sizes of cardboard boxes, a creative gal could DIY a great storage area for stickers!

Do you have any ideas that you would like to share?

  1. I have a small 5 x 8 in mini binder that holds the majority of my stickers and I use page protectors to keep 'like' ones together... but it's FULL! I like your idea of the step letter holder for the smaller sticker books I have, I have a letter holder that I can repurpose and plan to implement that idea. Thanks for the tip!!

  2. I looking forward to the Travelers Notebook release of "BSides and Rareties" which will include several limited edition inserts. One will be a sticker book... pages that will allow stickers to be placed and then removed. They will be available for pre-order in USA on April 5.
