Hello, happy Wednesday!
As you know we are getting ready for
the garage sale of the season! Hopefully.
Doing so I have been going through A
LOT of stuff. I have run across many,
many pictures and photos.
My post today is really a question.
What do you do with ALL the pictures/
photos that you have accumulated over
the years? Besides the obvious.
Your immediate family
Other people and/or their kids
You get the idea. We have sooooooo many
pictures, I have some in books but with
the digital age now they are on our phones
and on flash drives, which we back up.
I guess I just need to figure what to do with
the BAZILLION loose pics we have. I hate
shredding them but I don't want them
floating around the dump either.
I will be passing some on to family as they
are older pictures of family that are no
longer with us.
It is not a bad thing to have all these
pictures and such because they tell a
story but I don't need the multiples of
one pose. :)
As the saying goes:
"A picture is worth a thousand words"
~Keep on Dreaming~
This is what I do. I take a box of loose photos and sit in front of the t.v., watching a show that is not too riveting, but interesting enough to sit and listen to. I have a stack of empty envelopes and a garbage can. I go through the pictures one by one, and if I think of someone who might like one, I put their name on the envelope with the photo inside. Any duplicates, blurry pictures, unflattering pictures, pictures of SCENERY, I toss in the garbage. THEN, I shred all the ones in the garbage can. I don't want my pictures blowing around a landfill. And the envelopes, I address, put in a short note, "thought you'd like these," and mail them right away. Keep repeating this process until all the boxes of pictures are gone. :)ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great system you have going on.Delete
It will be a long process for sure but I will get it accomplished.
Have a great evening and Sunday.

Oh my goodness....We have SO MANY pictures and this is always a big issue. I put them on iCloud but then got a notice that I was low on space. Had to buy more space! Yikes!!ReplyDelete

take time but it will get done

I have lot of photos. I have saved them in my computer putting them under specified folders. Some photos got erased by themselves since it got old. Some i have copied to my external device.ReplyDelete
Planning to buy an external hard disc to keep the photos safe:)
Taking photo is not a problem, but to keep them safe is a big challenging one:)
I also sit in front of TV to view all the photos as slideshows. By seeing them we used to remember the sweet old memories:)
Yes, keeping them safe is a must. Old memories are good too.Delete

What Karen said!! I often wonder what my kids will do with the billion scrapbooks that I put together years ago. : )ReplyDelete
I am sure they will enjoy them later.Delete

I like Karen's suggestion. I wonder about photos and family history as we don't have children to leave it to.ReplyDelete
She did have great ideas.Delete
I wonder the same thing,
I figure that at least my
pictures will leave a footprint
of us and what we did and enjoyed while here.
