Organization Tip of the Day: Photograph Mementos to Help Combat Clutter

100 days of organization Photo: The Nest

Clear out clutter by photographing drawings, ticket stubs and other mementos rather than keeping them all. Put the photos in albums to preserve memories.

How to do it:

  • Instead of letting your nephew’s finger painting gather dust, collect that and other favorite keepsakes and photograph them individually.
  • Store the photos on your computer and back up to a storage device to ensure you never lose the images. Make albums when you have time!

Expert tip: If you simply can’t part with your precious keepsakes, store them in a 3-ring binder and put away for safe-keeping. That way, you can keep what you love while saving space.
