Now that the 2014 Piggy Swap is over, and I have a LOT of seeds that will be coming in, I'm looking for some suggestions about how other people organize their seeds, and where they store them from one year to the next.

My seeds are currently stashed in a couple of plastic shoe boxes, which are kept in our spare bedroom (everything that I don't know where to put seems to end up there Whistling ) Not the best system, because I have to keep looking through the whole bunch time after time, to see what I actually have, to find the ones that need to be planted when it's time to plant them, etc. This is normally pretty cumbersome -- but with all the oinked-for seeds coming I REALLY need to do something differently. I do store my bean seeds in the freezer, because long ago I read that will kill off any potential insect pests.. and they stay viable for quite a few years that way. Are there any types of seeds that shouldn't be stored in the freezer?

Thanks in advance!
