We all have photos that are languishing in cupboards, drawers, boxes, under the bed, garage, spare room, or heavens forbid – ON OUR COMPUTERS!
Most of us try and sort in chronological order. Like Hawaii, December 2009 comes after Lawn Hill National Park, QLD October 2009, which comes after Cairns in August 2009. Hmmm. Does the date even matter? I think not.
I’d like to introduce you to a new way of thinking from Stacy Julian. She suggests just four categories:
- Us (immediate family/partner, pets)
- Peeps we love (family, friends, etc)
- Places we go (school, holiday, work etc)
- The things we do (music, scrap booking, cycling)
Now doesn’t that seem a whole lot more achievable to have four categories rather than trying to be a slave to chronology in there? Of course, there is much more to this system, but check Stacy’s website for online classes, her books and blog posts.
Have you tried this method? Or do you have another technique? I’d love to hear.
PS This one’s for you, Sue!
