Spring Cleaning Your Photo Mess

Spring is in the air, and it’s time to tidy up not just our homes, but also our photo collections and piles of memorabilia! Follow these simple steps to spring clean your precious memories:

  1. Gather Your Materials: Grab photo albums, loose photos, memorabilia like tickets or cards, and any organizing supplies like boxes or albums.
  2. Sort and Declutter: Start by sorting through your photos and memorabilia. Decide what to keep, toss, or donate. Consider if a photo or item brings you joy or holds sentimental value.
  3. Organize Digitally: Scan old photos and documents to create digital backups. Consider if you have more time or money when scanning as there is a difference when doing it yourself versus professionally done. Organize them into folders on your computer or FOREVER cloud storage. Label or tag them with dates or events for easy searching.
  4. Create Albums or Scrapbooks: Use photo albums or digital photo books to display your favorite memories. Get creative with decorations, captions, and arranging your items chronologically, by person, or event.
  5. Label Everything: Don’t forget to label your physical and digital items. Write dates, names, or locations on the back of photos or in the lightbox in your FOREVER Photo Storage.
  6. Store Safely: Store your physical items in acid-free containers or albums to prevent damage. Keep digital photos and videos in your FOREVER Photo Storage where there is no need for backups in multiple locations to avoid losing them.
  7. Share and Enjoy: Share your memories with loved ones and revisit them often. Spring cleaning your photo collection and memorabilia can bring joy and preserve your cherished moments for years to come!
