Organizing My Google Reader

I am currently subscribed to 30 different wedding related blogs in my Google Reader, and sometimes it's hard to organize all of the amazing stuff I see everyday. Even though I have been engaged for over a year now, I didn't collect much inspiration photos because I knew that the wedding was too far away. Now I regret not saving all of the photos and projects I've seen in the past year, and I'm trying my best to make up for lost time. I began my Google Reader organization project by starring entries that I loved and tagging them with labels. While the system hasn't failed on me, I just can't get myself to actually look back on my past starred entries, and I usually forget that they are there.

To solve my problem I came up with a new system of organization that involves me saving each photo and project to my computer under over a dozen different categories. I make sure to include the source when saving so that I know where to go back for more information and also to credit the source in the future. It is very time consuming, but I think it will be worth it. I just hope that there is enough free space on the computer to save everything...
