How do you organize/store your pictures?

I have a lot of pictures that are in boxes that I am not sure what to do with. Do I just continue to store them in boxes or is there another more efficient way to store them. I feel overwhelmed by them and they take up space.

 

Thanks in advance!

  • Do you have a scanner?   You could put them in digital frames.

  • AT Hobby Lobby I bought a photo box that is for scrapbooking (which I do) & it has 12 separate "boxes" inside that you can label...love this method now & plan to keep it up though I may have to buy another one soon!!
  • I will be putting the prints into old fashioned albums.  In the future, I've stopped printing my digitals and will be making photo books.

  • My friend who recently lost her mom found a bunch of pictures while cleaning out her house. She scanned them all and burned them to disks.

    It keeps them from getting ruined and aging even more. She then put the disks into her fire safe.

  • Scanning is a good idea...but it would take FOREVER!
  • I don't know if it is in your budget but they have a cute photo scanner that is just for pictures, it is really small and is portable.  You just put a SD memory card in it an a power outlet.  I got mine at Macy's (gift card from our wedding!) Link

    I understand that isn't what you are looking for. I have somethig I just got to store mine that I like but I have to look at the brand to show you.  I used to use the boxes but this is much nicer.  I will do my best to remember to look at them when I get home!
