I don't keep the zipped files, either. I guess I don't see the advantage? I definitely back up all my files to an EHD, though. I've made a lot of Scrap Girls purchases, but I'm not sure I'm to the point where I need a spreadsheet. That day may be coming, LOL!

I don't keep the zipped files either, my pc is used by my kids for playing games too so I have to watch my available space on both my hard drive and EHD. A lot of zips take up a lot of space.
As I have my kits sorted by name (without the designer's name), and windows sorts them alphabetically, it is very easy to check if I have something or not.

I, too, keep all of my zipped files just in case. There have been times when I couldn't find my file or the zipped file and again Angie was there to save me.

I save my zip files too. I have gone back and used them before, or I might not.
My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.

If you do purchase the same thing again, just email Angie, firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the order numbers if you can from the My Account page. She'll issue a credit so you can buy something else with the money. I think all of us have done this at least once or twice.

I do save my zipped files, but off to DVDs, and that is too cumbersome to check through. I use Picasa for my scrapping supplies so I can search on a designer's initials or the name of a collection to see if I have it.
Oo, oo! I didn't know about that tip Barbara! Thank you.

Now I delete them. All my supplies are kept in a folder on my desktop and when I want to see if I already have an item I'm thinking of buying I just look in there. My files are also backed up onto 2 externals and dvds just in cases. I have doubled up on purchases especially in the early days lol

I do keep zips on DVD's but just because sometimes I misplace things, and need to get them again. They are not organized enough to search for duplicates. I have duplicates everywhere!
Now I just look on my account in the boutique. I made a spreadsheet but don't keep it up to date. I'm sure I have some duplicates!!!
