Did you know that there are professional photo organizers? In this article, 7 steps are presented to help you document your sentimental things with the goal of clearing them out. The best piece of advice is to create a story book. This is awesome but I don’t think its easy! Many of us want the tactile experience of grandma’s apron or the scent of her dining room via the linens we cherish. I get it. But I have to say that over time, I have been able to move some of my own grandmother’s things out because I really did not want them. I wanted her. Once I realized that, I could sweetly part with things and move them on to someone else, keeping just the stuff I really wanted.
I love the idea of a photo archive with accompanying stories.
