Organizing Photos by Date

I almost didn’t publish this post. It makes me sound anal retentive. I’m not really. I just love to organize.

Well, maybe sometimes I go overboard like when I organized all my buttons by color.

Or when I bought pin cushions for each type of pin I owned: metal, large and small.

It drives me nuts when things are out of order. Even though I had pictures of Elly in a cute pink photo album, I took them all out. I hated them not being in chronological order. Yeah, it sounds a bit crazy to me too.

It took an afternoon of sorting, but I’m thrilled with the results. Not only is it in order from birth to present day, but I even added little notes like when she played with her first toy and when she applied for her first passport.
