I always take plenty pics and kind of using my scrapbooking to show off my pics. I do not have any photo albums. What does everyone do with their extra photos that you do not scrapbook????

Please help. I did think about just buying albums for them.

right now, all my unscrapped photos are organized into the CM photo boxes. (ok, some are in piles scattered every where, but I'm trying to be organized!) Since I went digital, I've been tending to print exactly what I scrap and nothing more.

I had them in albums until I realized that the boxes took up less space than the albums that no one was looking at anyway.

Since going digital, I just don't develop every photo, only the ones that I'll scrap or give to another person.

Before with film, I always got double prints. Those are in a box in chronological order. One day, not any time soon, I'll go through them and give the copies to my kids. Let them deal with it.

I try to stick them in photo albums. the kids love looking at those just as much as the scrapbook albums.

I have the boxes too. I spent the past weekend organizing mine. I use Kodak Gallery to keep my pictures that I have not printed. That way I can go back and print when I finish scraping the pictures I do have printed. Thanks guys I think what I will do is, print only the extras that the kids will enjoy in an album of their own and then print the ones for my scrapbooks. That way I can keep my scrapbooks and when the kids grow up they can take their very own albums with them.



Thanks to all!!

I have boxes of prints.. and I also have photo albums for them. They kind of get sorted into three stacks... scrapable, album, and so bad they need to hide in a box. LOL.

My printed ones are in boxes, but most are digital so they are on cds and a hard drive. I love digital!

The older ones that are not digital are in boxes. Otherwise I print only the ones I am going to scrap. Except for the pictures I take that I want to enlarge. Those are in an album.

I like the idea of using them for gifts. I would have never thought about it. I could make cards of the extra photos for family to see the kids growing up. Great idea!!
