I have been struggling with what to do with all my mother's photos. (She has been gone a year now.) She always told me, "those photos are going to be a problem." She even left me a note on an envelope of pictures: "You throw these away. I can't."
I don't want to just leave them loose and in various envelopes, because they will eventually fall into my sons' laps, and they really will be overwhelmed about what to do with these pictures, mostly of people they do not know.
I noticed that Target has a line of photo preservation albums called John Porter Everyday Archives. They are affordable and made of acid-free papers.
So, I think I'll pick my favorite pictures and make an album or two which my sons can keep, and the rest, well, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. :-)
If anyone else has brilliant ideas for dealing with those pictures, I'd love to hear from you.
