Do you have a box full of old photo albums sitting around somewhere? While I like to be organized, I’m not a minimalist. I have cards, notes and pictures from early in my childhood that I could never bear to part with. I love my pictures, but I don’t have room to store 15 photo albums.
I’ve heard other organizing gurus talk about storing photos in an index card box, and I thought I’d give that a shot. Here’s how I paired down and organized my photo collection!
First, I went through all the albums and pulled out the pictures I wanted to keep. Then, I sorted them by category.
I always like to use what I have on hand, so I grabbed some index cards to use as dividers. My new label maker came in handy and gave me perfectly uniform labels. Love!
This box holds a lot of pictures, and I have plenty of room to add more. Leaving room to grow is key in organization.
