Organizing Photos

I just had to share this picture found among my collection of photos that I desperately need to get organized. This shot has nothing to do with art although I may have to do a scrapbook page using it. It may be something my kids would enjoy seeing someday. The picture was taken after winning a regional contest for 'Job Interview'. The year was 1977....YIKES!....where did the time go.......

So, I have a question. How do you organize your photos? Please leave some suggestions...I'd appreciate it!

OK - that's too funny! We're pretty close to the same age because I won mine for something in 1973! What state did you compete in? My husband won his national VICA awards for his metal work in the late 60's. He was a HUGE VICA supporter as a teacher and he was on the national committee for CAD/CAM/Machining for years. He even drew the contest part a year or two. He LOVED VICA and supported them until he was killed by a drunk driver in '06.

I competed in Tennessee. I am so sorry that he was killed. What state did you compete in?

Organizing my photos is an endless task. I've got photo boxes full, but at least I have events or families labeled on each box. That's as far as I've gotten. My mother gave me my grandmothers photos as well as her own since her house is so small. It's photo overload..any suggestions on how to easily organize photos would be a great help! Ronnie

I have been working on my mine over the last year and well have them pretty well together. I took a photo box per child and started there in the photo box have it broken down by year and then advent. Then family shots, mother's family,etc....Then you throw the digital one that I still have to do and am not sure what to do with them. But I do love my pics.

I am just getting ready to do a big "photo organization". I got some photo storage boxes when they were on sale and have set out on the task of rounding up all the photos that are EVERYWHERE in this house. I'm getting close to having them all...
I figure tomorrow, I'm going to sit down in my family room, sort them all by chronological order- having a separate box for heritage photos- one for mine and one for my husband's family. Also, I'm going to gather up the doubles of my kids so that I can work on books specifically for them in addition to the family albums.

Hopefully it will go smoothly and I will be organized and ready to scrapbook in the next couple of days!
