How to Stop the Paper Trail – Photographs

We’ve been working through letting go of paper clutter over the past few weeks, tackling areas and methods to eliminate the stream of paper and piles. We only have two areas left…today we’re going to talk about photograph storage.
Photographs are a touchy subject because there are so many forms and ways to store them. How you store and keep photographs is a personal preference, with no real right or wrong way. Obviously, if your photos are taking over a room or part of your life, it’s too much, but today let’s look at some ways to store and keep photographs.
I keep extra photos in photo boxes in an upper shelf in our craft room closet. You can see the whole post about my craft room here if you are interested.
I like having favorite pictures in frames throughout the house, but I do photo albums too and we keep them in a little antique hutch in our living room. We love to look through photo albums!
