Having lots of photos around, from before we all went digital, can seem overwhelming. When you can finally start the job to get them organized be sure to get rid of any that are less than ideal or are duplicates. Sometimes it is nice to send along the duplicate to others in the picture. Maybe you have two copies of your now adult child as a baby with his grandmother. That may be a treasured reminder for him. When I try to decide, I simply ask myself...is this something worthy of framing and displaying in my home? If not, I get rid of it. You are going to need to be realistic that purging through your photo collection is going to be time consuming but can also be lots of fun.
