Managing Photos

IMG_6184

Before going digital, photo albums started to dominate my life.  Filing photos from the year would pile up until I would spend entire weekends managing memories.  When my life turned digital and you could even starting taking pics of your food, I started feeling guilty about all those memories just trapped in a box.  I would have some printed into albums but find they mostly just sit on the shelf and take up precious space.   Tried digital frame or cycling the photos on my monitor but just wasn’t quite doing it for me.  I finally found it.  I realized I just needed a board that I could cheaply print out photos occasionally and put up.  After awhile, I would print another batch and put them up. Since they just printed on my printer, I didn’t feel bad about just throwing away old photos.  My kids can choose and print sometimes and it has kept memories fresh and prominent without deteriorating in an old binder.

I found these amazing, tiny small magnets to put on the corners of the photos.

My husband used low cost roofing tin from Lowe’s and framed it out.  An amazing and low-cost board for all my photos.

How do you display your photos?
