How to Organize Pictures


If you’re like me, you have a box full of pictures randomly stored in a shoe box or plastic tub under your bed. There’s no way to enjoy these pictures because they are not organized. What started out in the early years of our marriage as a small box of pictures has multiplied into a hideous mess. But I think I found how to organize pictures in a way that I can easily enjoy looking through them.

How to Organize Pictures

Over the past few years, I have been trying to separate my random pictures by date and events. I have sorted them into individual ziploc bags by event and used index cards to separate them by dates. It is a step in the right direction, but still a mess.

I found these plastic photo storage boxes that allow me to separate my pictures into years and events. I purchased the Large Photo Keeper from Amazon. There are 16 individual plastic boxes that hold 100 4×6 pictures each.

I have been sorting my pictures into events and years. I can now just open the plastic storage box and pull out the pictures from our vacation in 1999 or from 2003 and see what we did that year. Talk about easy storage! I feel so organized now!

I know I’m going to need one more of these large photo boxes. Maybe I will find a company willing to sponsor a giveaway so one of you readers can check these out as well!
