Are you hesitant to organize your printed photos because you don’t know where to start? Here are few tips to help you get going.
1. Gather all of your loose pictures into one place so you can see what you have.
2. Decide what you want to do with your pictures. Do you just want to organized them and store them in photo boxes? Do you want to make photo albums? Do you want to display them on the wall? This will help you have a plan of attack.
3. If you are going to organize your photos in boxes or in albums, how are you arrange the pictures? You can do it chronologically or by family member or by events (Christmas, birthdays, vacations). Whatever works for you and how you think when you want to find a specific picture.
