Then when I started to become more curious about how to decorate my FiloFax pages, I started seeing it everywhere. It like stalked my life, I decided that I had to have them all.... In less than a month. I went from two very small rolls to this.
I do my best to grab rolls that are on sale..Or to use a coupon. The sad part is that I still want MORE..There's so many possibilities, patterns, width, patterns! I see other peoples layouts and I get all washi envious. I'm grateful for what I have and the compulsion needs to stop. I'm on an official washi tape NO BUY. Except for maybe 2 Christmas themed ones....
How do I store them? It's quite sad how I store them. At first they lived in a regular sized zip loc bag. That lasted for about 3 days and I had to upgrade bag sizes. I like to work on my decoration projects during my breaks and lunch at work so for now I keep using the bag system because it's portable. I can just sneak them in my work tote. I've been busted and its really weird trying to explain why I have 40 rolls of "weird tape" showing in my open work tote.
I keep the solids and patterns separated. I'm not sure if that's considered racist or not...
I've recently made my own washi tape "reference" sheets in my Filofax because I've caught myself buying duplicates. >_< It's not my fault I buy things in my sleep... I seriously do. I get packages and I have no recollection of ordering the item. Or I get a confirmation email from Etsy or Amazon and I'm like "huh"?
I also think that decoration my Filofax helps me actually use it and look forward to using it, I think I've said it before but I prefer to look at cute things :)
I started out doing the solid ones on the back of a divider in Dulce (my personal sized Raspberry Saffiano, but then I realized that if I want to switch out my dividers I'm screwed so I decided to do the rest on regular Filofax note paper. I'm not to worried about buying dupes of the solid colors because I pretty much that I own almost every basic color.
I also wanted to do them in color order or sort them in an organized way but I realized that wont work because as I acquire more it will be a pain to keep them sorted.
