Archiving Circa

Happy New Year all!

I'm trying to figure out now how best to hang onto my last two years of circa calendars. Last year, I used the hanging file folder method, cutting off most of the folder and smurfing the remainder.

However, over the past year, I've found that this setup doesn't quite work for me. So, what are the rest of you doing to archive any circa pages? I've search around the site and the web, but I've not hit the right combination yet.

On a bookshelf?


I have a bunch of notebooks and other circa bound stuff standing on a bookshelf. Some of it's been like that for a couple of years now. They're all on discs with plain plastic covers.

I suppose if you wanted to reclaim the discs and covers you might glue-bind the pages so they'd stay bound, then stand them up or stick them in a file.


what's the problem ?

What is not working about the hanging folders ?

Other than that, bookshelves, boxes, rebinding, or digitizing them comes to mind

Not Exactly a Problem...

It's not exactly a problem, but not really ideal. The space it takes is a bit more than I would like. I have them hanging with 1" discs for density. I may look toward boxes.

The other element that makes it a bit of a bugger for me is that I'm storing the half letter size, using only part of the hanger. I'd like more density and 'evenness' there.

Looks like the box solution might be best.

Just my experience...

I'd digitize everything. That's what I'm doing now with 20 years worth of writing. Over the years, I've accumulated so much stuff that it's starting to take over. I have so much paper but nowhere to put it, and I'm going to have to pair down so my boyfriend can actually have some of his stuff in the house we're probably moving to next month.

I'd really recommend digitizing it. I wish I'd done it sooner because I wouldn't have such a ponderous task in front of me now.

Binders perhaps

Depending on your margins, you can actually use a Franklin Covey 7 hole punch and then put your pages in a binder or storage binder. The FC punch will put holes just past the Circa smurfs, with one particular hole almost touching them. I have designed all of my custom Circa pages with a half inch margin to allow for this, now that I am using Circa. I figured it would be the easiest thing for me considering that I used the FC system and storage binders for years and I could just continue to line them up on my bookshelf. Someone is always selling FC storage binders on Ebay it seems.

If there is an Ikea near you, you can check out the Kassett Box with lid, for paper 28 x 35 x 18 cm. Those boxes are wide and deep enough with a little room to spare for the pages and perhaps tabbed dividers. They are $5.99 for a two pack and come in a few colors. Michael's craft store might have similar sized boxes, but they will probably be more expensive.
