Spring Cleaning Your Photos

Spring has finally bloomed here in southern New England. Spring is a beautiful season when everything outdoors starts to wake up after a long winter, when the grass and the trees start to turn green and the plants open up with their rainbow of colors. As we all come out of our winter cocoons, we start the annual tradition of spring cleaning.
Wikipedia defines spring cleaning as “the practice of thoroughly cleaning a house in the springtime” and is used to refer to “any kind of heavy duty cleaning or organizing enterprise”.

My spring cleaning is usually done outside raking the gardens and cleaning out the garden beds to get them ready for planting and to make way for the perennials. This year I have also set a goal to start the process to organize all of my husband’s printed photos and to digitize his photos and mine.
Yes, I have all of my photos nicely put into albums and photo organizing boxes, but they are taking up a lot of space and it does take some time to find what I am looking for. So, I have started going to go through all my old photo albums, removing the photos, and labeling them in preparation of digitizing them into folders, and then uploading them to Forever for permanent storage.
