Organize those seed packets

Over on vegetablegardener.com, Greg Holdsworth provides step-by-step directions for an organized storage system:

    I still don't get why anyone needs to store seeds. Don't they get used?? Why buy packets and then store them??

    I store all kinds. Some in gallon containers, until the next season. Your offering is brilliant. I will have one soon. Thanks
