I have a bunch of photoboxes. They are organized by year. (My boxes have a place to slipin a label on the front). Beyond that, I don't know what to do. I would really like to get them out of my guest room closet, but I am afraid to put negs and photos in my roasty attic.

I think it's called digital photography!! I used to be so organized, but now I'm not. One good thing though is that I get an index print when I get my photos, which I staple to the negatives, so it's easier to know what are what.

I'm seriously considering tossing the negatives though. I'm sure I'll never use them, and if the house burns down, they'll go too, so why bother keeping them?

DON'T TOSS THE NEGATIVES!! Have you considered a fire safe box for the negatives. I like keeping them because I never know if I will want an enlargement one day. My kids might want them one day, too. I keep them in a 3 drawer cabinet and some photo boxes. I really need to label them by year.

I hope to get better at using our digital camera. I love my camera!

Creative memories sales a photo organizer box. It is $35 and holds nearly 3,000 pictures. I really like mine.
