One of the most frequently asked questions is “How to organize photos'”.
A photo is worth a 1,000 words…maybe.
I love photographs. I think it’s the stories that are hidden in those frozen frames that draw me in.
Growing up, I would sit for hours and listen to the family stories of Great-Grandma going to school in Ireland by boat each day. Another Great-Grandmother was a college graduate, teacher and business owner. The tales fascinated me.
I love family history. On my maternal grandmother’s side, the genealogy has been traced back to the Revolutionary War. That is so cool.
But if you don’t WRITE DOWN the stories, pictures become just a collection of people on paper.
Photo and Memorabilia Organization
At a new client’s home, I was going through drawer after drawer of files. Lots of memorabilia, kid’s art work and photos were found in our purging and sorting. All were set aside to be looked at …later.
Is today your…later?
Is it driving you crazy that you have all these photos and memorabilia, but you don’t know where to start…. storing it, displaying it and saving it?
In my years as a professional organizer I have found photos in some unique places. Very few people have storage solutions for their photos, letters, kid’s school papers, trophies, medals and trinkets that “work.”
Where are your photos?
