Our Sandpaper is Organized, Super Nerdy?

I am a total big fat nerd because I like to file things. That's right, I ENJOY filing. Getting things alphabetized, color coded, binder tabs, labels, EEE!!! It just whips my heart into a frenzy. When we were shopping around on Black Friday this past November we hit up Sears because they always have awesome deals. They did in fact have one cool one that Chris and I caved for: A filing sleeve of sandpaper for under $10, and it came with TONS of sandpaper. Score!

And yes, you heard right that we purchased it 2 months ago. And you know what? It's been sitting on the work bench in the garage for all that time. Finally, on Sunday between chair coats while we were cleaning up and putting things away in the garage I decided it might be time to finally organize the sandpaper file.

I grabbed all our sandpaper sheets from the sandpaper drawer

The file had labels for 40 grit, 60, 100, 150 and 220

We had additional paper at 80 grit, 320 and 400

So I relabeled a couple sections (I made 40-60, 80, 100, 150, 200 and >220), and then I shoved all the sandpaper inside

Am I a total nerd because this folder just makes me so excited?

Look at that sandpaper drawer!

I may have to get some folders for the palm sander paper because that file folder just makes me too excited to not go on a sandpaper filing frenzy :)

OMG that is so nerdy!

Wait, I mean I so want that :-)

I don't have as much sandpaper on hand, so it lives in a manila folder (sorted by grit, of course, but still...)

That looks awesome. My sandpaper is in an old diaper box along with steel wool, wood filler, stain, wood glue, rags and paste wax.
