So, I’m a bit of a picture nut.
I’m always printing pictures out and updating the pictures in our frames and on our bulletin boards. I just love having wonderful memories with family and friends all around our home. It makes me realize what a happy and full life we are blessed to have.
But, even though I’m a “picture nut” I’m not exactly the best at keeping all of my pics organized and in chronological order.
Here’s the system I’ve been using for quite some time. Whenever I print out pictures, I just put them in the photo box that sits on our bookshelf.
Sure, it’s a cute little box.
But the scary part happens when you open it up.
See…I told you it was scary.
I’m constantly taking all of the photos out, and I dig and dig looking for a specific picture. It’s a mess.
So when I saw this card catalog at my favorite antique mall, I knew it would be a great solution to my picture problem.
Plus with a $10 price tag…who could pass this bad boy up? (Yes, that is my coffee on top. Is there any other way to shop?!)
Once I got it home, I cleaned it up with hot water mixed with some vinegar. I wiped it down, inside and out, to get rid of all of those years of neglect #holyspiderwebs
There were also some pieces of tape on the exterior, so I used some Goo Gone to get them off.
After it was all dry, it was time to get organizing.
I hit up OfficeMax and got some labels and plastic 4×6 tabs.
The tabs had letters on them, but I just flipped them over and used the backside.
I then dumped all our pics on the table. #holycow
