My Project for the Next Few Days...

I used to take digital pictures and print ALL of them.  Then because I printed hundreds of pictures at a time, the pictures would then be all shuffled out of order for some reason when I got them back from the store.  Then it would take me literally hours to put my pictures back in chronological order, then slide the pictures into photo album sleeves, and document the dates and events in the albums.  Well, I don't have time to spend hours and hours on sorting and then filing pictures in albums! (Especially since I now document pictures on my blog here)

Below is a picture of part of the 44 photo albums that I have sorted and labeled since my oldest was born 11 years ago.  

My children flip through our albums almost everyday and they love looking at how much they have grown and changed through the years.  So I hate that all our pictures are now stored on our computer only and not in albums.   Because I want to preserve photos, but I don't want to spend the time and money on printing out photos, I have been making a few digital photo books.  In this way, I can download my digital prints into the albums and a hard copy is sent to me from the company.  Yes, it takes time to make the albums, but not as long as sorting and filing pictures in traditional albums.  Yes, digital books can be expensive especially with shipping costs so that is why I wait for a great sale on digital books to make a few.

My friend, Delly, at Delly's Deals, just blogged about how Shutterfly has an offer until this Wed., 8/24/11 where you can get a 8X8 photo book for FREE, you pay shipping costs, but still a great deal!  This is a value up to $29.99!

So my project for the next few days will be to make one of these books and take advantage of the great offer.  Go to Shutterfly's website, create an 8x8 hardcover book, and when you pay enter the promo code: RXV4-CV37-9YZR-YUN31Z

This summer, Snapfish, had an offer where you could buy one $29.99 album and get 2 free!  I quickly made 3 albums for this great price.  So I think for now on, when I hear about digital photo album sales, I'm going to quickly make one to get the great prices.  Now, I'm off to download some pictures for my 8X8 photo album offer...

Thank you so much for the info! Organizing my pictures is my Achilles Heel!

I am so bad about organizing my photos. I still have a baby book I'm not done! I love the sites online like Snapfish and there are so many good deals out there that I get books made when I see a deal. I have a lot to catch up!
