Super Tip Tuesday: What to Do With Old Photographs (Non Digital)

22 Sep

WE ALL have photos somewhere in the house. Are they in boxes? Are they in the bottom of your drawers? Do you have piles and piles in the closet? Here are some quick ideas to organize your old photographs.

Sort through the pics and make 3 piles: Keep, Trash and doubles to give away.

  • Trash means any photos that are super old and you cant see the image anymore. Or they are super ripped or torn.
  • Sometimes you have doubles or lots of one shot. Would anybody involved in the pic or related to the picture want a copy?
  • Keep are the ones you definitely want to keep.

For all the kept one, try to divide into dates and/or events. Or by person.

  • make a pile for all those pics that you have questions about.

Get photo boxes, which you can get at art supply stores or places like Big Lots or Michaels. They usually come with dividers. That is a great way to organize photos.

If you want to scrapbook them or put them in photo albums, GO BUY THEM now and commit to taking time to do it SOON! If not NOW!
