Storing photographs

Hi everyone, welcome to another Sunday with me :) Today i wanted to show you just a small selection of the products available for keeping all your photographs neat and tidy. I am terrible when it comes to storage and all mine are still stored on my computer waiting to be printed. All the ones i have that are pre-digital are just shoved in a box in no particular order. For all of you out there who have a zillion pictures stored on your hard drive then the first thing i will say to you is BACK THEM UP!!!! Whether this be on CDs or on an external hard drive then please do it. I know of many people who have had disasters with computers(you know how temperamental they are) and have lost all of their precious memories forever. If it's the only thing you do today then go do it!!! I was also recently found out that the wallets you receive your photographs in are NOT Acid free so don't keep them in there. Right, for all of you organised people who have them printed and need somewhere to keep them, here are a few ideas! Artbin Photo Tote

Some great ideas, mine are all in the small cd sized RUB's by year, with index cards (made from Bazzille) seperating them by events)AND backed up at least twice onto cd's.

I have 2 of those Cropper Hopper boxes and still need more. They are truly fab though.

Great post.

Thank you so much. Now that I have finished work, that is one of my big projects planned. I have those black boxes from WHSmith, quite smart looking, with index card dividers. I am particularly interested in knowing how everyone organises their digital photos.
