I finally took a few moments one day and armed with scraps of cardboard I had saved from empty cereal boxes and such, (one never knows when one needs a piece of cardboard!), I roamed through my rooms tracing different size circles onto the cardboard. I then measured each and wrote the size inside the circle. I cut them all out and keep them as templates.
Now when I need a circle of any size, it's right there within reach. Works great!

I have used those plastic strips from bacon for many many years. I have a whole slew of them still. I have made so many templates from them as they never wear out! I use an indelible ink to write on them, although through a lot of usage, sometimes the ink starts to wear off, so I simply write it again and after a while... it stays on!
May sound strange but the "plastic" that many bacon packages have under the bacon strips would be an alternative to cardboard. Since they are quite a sturdy material there would be no change in the dimensions that you cut into/onto them the way the cardboard may change after many uses. It may take awhile to accumulate them but in the meantime you can enjoy several BLT's!
I did that when I was making the clear Christmas ornaments with" Photos". I have all the sizes marked like you did. Sure is a time saver. GG Vi
