Yesterday I spent most of the day sorting through photographs. I thought it would be emotional but it wasn’t. I first sorted all of them into categories: husband, parents, pets, siblings, nieces and nephews, houses, cars, travel, hobbies and junk. I immediately tossed pictures of people I did not know, places I could not remember where they were, multiples, scenes of something (i.e. various parades, gatherings, etc.). I then went through what was left in each category and kept a variety that are really important and the best of the bunch. For instance, there is no need to keep 92 pictures of my niece (I only have one). I did not need to keep pictures of a wedding when the bride and groom have been divorced for years and moved on to who knows where or places I worked that I really need to forget!!
This is how I started!
