Yes, it's March and I am just completing the February challenge. The truth be known, I'm still not completely finished with this task as I had to order some larger photo cases. But at least things are organized and pretty now.
A few years ago I spread out all out photos. The one that predate digital. I sorted by subject. And most of them were put into photo display books or scrapbooks. But I had these left over photos. They've been in these plastic boxes forever. We always go to these photos for any kind of school project that requires .... well, a photo.
The challenges begins. I pulled out ALL the loose photos. Doesn't look like many but it was MANY.
I sorted through them one by one. And followed the rules of the challenge and threw away *gasp* any photos that were 1. blurry 2. duplicates 3. scenery that I had no idea where ironman was when he took it b/c he is always taking scenery photos and 4. any photo that made me look fatter than necessary.
Here's where I must have gotten so involved that I forgot to take a photo of the empty photo cases as I sorted. You can kinda see them in other photos.
Photo cases: $1.99 each from The Container Store. Pictures fit in so nice and tidy.
You can also purchase a case to stack all your smaller photo cases in from The Container Store but I found it bulky and ugly. I'm waiting for Michaels to put their photo boxes on sale. Then they'll be all pretty sitting on the shelf.
Also, I haven't completely finished this project because I ordered 2 document sized plastic boxes for the 8X10 photos and the keepsake programs, etc.
The March Challenge is organizing your household binder. But since I don't have a HOUSE to have to organize the info I'll just wait on that challenge. A place to keep all your paint chip information, wallpaper information, fabric samples. Things like that.
The days are longer, people, time to look for a new house. We have a human looking through our house today with a realtor It has been 3 long weeks without ONE VISITOR. Maybe this is a sign that buyers are returning to the market.
