This month's assignment is organizing your memorabilia/photos. I am really looking forward to this one, because I already have a plan, and now I have the motivation to complete it. I will be focusing mostly on the photo part of this assignment. I really don't have a lot of memorabilia. I have a large plastic box for each child in my storage room where I keep their important mementos. After I finish organizing my photos, I will tackle any further memorabilia that I may find as I am cleaning out.
My photo plan:
1. Remove all photos from photo albums (I have about 5-6 of these).
2. Sort these photos and the hundreds of other photos (maybe thousands!) that I have stored in a large plastic box by year.
3. Store sorted photos in photo safe/acid free photo boxes that I have purchased from Hobby Lobby when they were half price. They are actually half price again this week, so I may go ahead and buy a few more. I will file these photos by the year that they were taken.
That's it! A simple plan, but one that will require a good bit of time. Fortunately, this is a task that can be worked on in short spurts of time.
After the photos are nicely organized, it will be so much easier to scrapbook!
How will you organize your photos?
