Organizing your family photos

It’s time to get those photos out of the shoebox and preserve them for years to come.

Step 1: Gather all of your photos and put in one place, plan to work on organizing
them in 15 minute or 30 minute increments a day.

Step 2: Look thru the photos and discard the ones that are not worth keeping.

Step 3: Set aside the duplicate photos that you intended to give to someone else

Step 4: Organize the photos the way it makes sense to you, there is no written rule
as to how to do it…here are a few ideas: Chronologically (year by year),
or events like holidays, or parties, or even an album for each child in
your family.

Step 5: Label all photos, make sure to include who, when & where (it’s easy to
forget these details as life goes on).

Step 6: Put the photos in an acid-free album or acid-free envelopes,if you plan on
scrapbooking them.
