Hi Ladies,
I have a random, O/T question. Last week, I inadvertently got into a project that I started about 7 years ago, and never finished. I had no intention of starting it back up again, but it happened. I was looking for some old pictures of Molly, and since I got her 16 years ago, most of my earlier photos were not digital (i.e. they are hard copy). So, in going through the huge rubbermaid tote of photos, now I got sucked into organizing them. I've already tossed out a ton of duplicates, and now I'm dividing them into categories and stuff. Once I do that, though, I don't really know what to do with them other than toss them back in this tote.

Looking for any suggestions for photo storage. I know I can get your standard cardboard photo boxes, but I was hoping for something a little sturdier. I've seen Cropper Hoppers, and those look neat. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions? And no suggestions of putting them in albums. I have WAY too many for that! I already have at least 9 albums that are full already, and I don't know what to do with them. These are mainly old pictures, none of which really need to be displayed, but I do want to keep them, of course.

Thoughts, ideas, suggestions?

thx!
xx

Do you have a scanner? About a month ago DH scanned in all my photos and i have them organized by folders. I am working on making digital photobooks using PowerPoint but that's a completely different project.

Otherwise let me think about storage options and get back to you.

I have a scanner, but I have thousands of pictures probably. It would take me too long to scan all of them

How about a plastic tote?

I feel like your best bet is actually albums - pocket albums are really quick - you just slide them in and are done. It's nice and quick and easy. Just something to think about, even if that's not what you think of. Good luck!
