Photos – The Story of Your Life

Thanks for asking Karlene. Photos are the story of your life and needed to be preserved. However, not all photos are created equal. Some pictures just don’t make the grade.


  • Toss those that are fuzzy, blurry and not very interesting.
  • Sort the remaining ones and use an acid-free pen to record important data on the back.
  • Pick out 20 of the best shots and place them in a mini-album to share with family and friends.
  • Store the rest in a photo box designed for the size photographs you have taken. Create an index so that you can find particular photos easily.
