Some of the most treasured items can be the most difficult to organize. When it comes to photographs, whether prints, negatives, or digital files, it is essential to have a system in place for organizing the captured memories.
-Invest in a few inexpensive photo storage boxes and label them.
-Keep several sturdy envelopes on hand for negatives, and keep the negatives with the original photos.
-Create files for digital pictures so that as soon as you upload pictures from your camera you can drop them into the appropriate folders (holidays, dates, people, special events…).
A few minutes of prep time to gather or create these supplies will save you hours of time searching for that favorite photograph, and the integrity of the pictures will be preserved as well.
