Tackle it Tuesday

I have been trying so hard to get things organized around here, one by one. Really hard when you already needed one more room in your house and you loose your office/toy room to your mother in law. (she moved in with us about a month and a half ago) So really we need 2 more rooms in our house. So trying to make new ways to store things and be realistic about the things we really need to keep and getting rid of the excess.

The past few years I have been doing photo projects. I made photo collages for family members for Christmas about 2 years ago and last year I made video montages for all my kids and each time it required lots of photos being removed from albums. Unfortunately I wasn't so good at putting them back like I should of, so I had 3 photo boxes overflowing with pics. Plus for some reason I haven't put new pics in albums like I used to be so good at. So I have 4 years of newer pics to put away. I am happy to say this last week I put 10 albums back in order, plus the kids little baby albums. I am caught up through 2004!! I know I am still 3 years behind, but I am so much closer to being done. The photos I have left I just need to pick up some new albums which I plan to do today and I already have them organized in years, I just need to put them into seasons and put them away.
I forgot to take a before shot, but here is what I have completed so far...

Great job on your tackle!

I need to start working on my photos too! I have over 1000 photos that I need to go through & print for scrapbooks as well as develop about 30 rolls of film! Yikes!

I really need to do that, too. I have so many photos shoved in boxes, undeveloped film, pictures sitting on my computer that need to be printed. You are doing a good job with yours.

I so need to do that, too. I made some displays for my sons' graduations -- one last years and one 3 5 years ago -- and still don;t have them back in photo albums! And I have several year's worth in boxes. Great job!

Congrats! Sorting photos can be a big headache, but so wonderful when it's done!

Photos are so hard to keep up with but you will really appreciate it in the long run.

You are my hero..
I use to be the best at keeping my photos orgainized and in fun and neat and orderly albums. Then came digital and I stopped printing photos.. I'm extreamly behind now. I have these wonderful alumbs from the time I got my 1st camera at 10 years old until Sweet Pea was 9 months old.. then I don't have anymore albums.. At 1st I thought i was doing a good thing because I was running out of room in my house with all the pictures I take and all the albums I had so in my mind putting my photos on disc and storeing seemed great.. ONLY now I have no photos. lots to view on the computer, online and in my dvd player but not album to sit down and look at.
Great tackle
