I thought I would share how and where we keep our Pictures, you know those images on paper we printed out, before digital cameras :) I still insist on printing out some of my favorites every year.
One because I'm a skeptic and somewhere deep down I truly believe that some big computer virus is going to wipe out the worlds computers and all of their contents.
Two, my grandm refuses to look at anything on a computer screen. Seriously you could tell her the secret to life is on the computer screen and she wouldn't even turn her head.
Three, there is just something about a photograph. Maybe because I have photos of family from a very long time ago, or maybe it's because I feel like someone will be holding that exact photo in the future and think of me.
But anyway it makes me feel nice to print a favorite 30-40 a year (this way I can guarantee if someone in the future is holding a photo of me, it's one I hand selected, not some half fuzzy picture of me trying to fit an over sized piece of birthday cake into my mouth)~We all have that picture of ourselves, I however have multiple.
Here's one way we store our pictures. I bought this little box from Walmart. It was under $5 and fits all of our 4X6 photos (although it is almost full). I took recipe card dividers and wrote the year on each one, and separated each years photos. I prefer to keep them organized by year, then you never have to guess what year that photo was taken in :)
I also make a scrapbook for each year. Once a month I make a page for that month and it goes into the scrapbook, each scrapbook has twelve spots for twelve pages. I would love to scrapbook more but finding the time is difficult, and it can be expensive, so I limit myself to one page a month and then I don't worry about scraping every single photo.
I also have scrapbooks for special occasions, like our wedding.
So that's how we organize our photos. I would love to know how others organize theirs! Let me know if you've got your own special system, or if you still print them out at all, most of our friends don't even bother printing them anymore.
