Today I am sharing with you how to keep your seed stash organized. It took me many years to finally find this system that actually works! I forget who shared this idea, but I know I first saw it on Instagram.
By the way, if you are a homesteader, and you are not on Instagram, you really should be! There is a huge homesteading community there, and I have learned so much from all those fine folks. If you are on there, please look me up, I’d love to have you follow me here . I post much more often on Instagram, and on Facebook here , just because it’s so much easier to do when I am on the go and don’t have time to write up a blog post, edit photos and then upload them and put it all together. ANYWAY. Back to getting the seed stash organized!

How simple is this?!?!? And why did we all not think of this ourselves? Some genius out there realized how perfectly photo storage boxes work for seeds. It’s like they were made to store seeds! They fit just right, snap closed, you can see through them so you know what is in each. It’s perfect really. And simple! Genius. My bags and boxes and bins of seeds are finally all neat and tidy.
Yes, I have 3 cases of photo boxes for these 3 different categories. With just a few spare boxes in each case. Depending on your seed stash, you may need more or less. If you are like me though, go big! You will always have more seeds coming in. You can have a case for old seeds and new seeds! Flower seeds and veggie seeds! But 3 of these cases seems to work for me right now.
If you know a gardener, these also make a great gift idea. Especially for someone who has everything. Make sure you get them a few new seeds and put one packet in a couple of the boxes so they get the idea. Get them something every gardener could use more of like these: Heirloom Vegetable Seed Collection, Sunflower Seed Collection, Herb Seed Collection, Bee Friendly Wildflower Seed Mix or “For the Birds, Bees & Butterflies Flower Seed Collection“! Get a pack of 2 photo boxes, one for you, and one for a friend! Treat yourself for the holidays and get all your current seeds organized soon, because it’s almost time to order seeds for next year. Truth be known, I’ve already received my first order! Seed packets make great stocking stuffers too! You might also be interested in my post on Holiday Gift Ideas for Gardeners.
