Do you have a box (or several) of photos – sorted or unsorted (maybe even still in the envelopes from where you got the photos printed)? It can take a long time to sort through photos … you get caught up in memories and stories of the places you visited on vacation, of the people in the photos (Who is that? What’s his name?), of the events that seemed photo-worthy.
On other days, for other tasks, you’ve looked at the photographs you have displayed in your home and you may have even worked through some of your digital photos.
Today, gather any boxes of photos and photo albums and bring them to a central location. When you have the chance to look at these printed photographs, you’ll have them all in one place.
It isn’t necessary to keep every photograph, particularly if you have several that are similar – select the best to keep.
