Photographs - initial sorting
I have two boxes (book box size from the movers) of photographs, all totally jumbled together. Some are photos of the family, some are vacation photos, some are "who in the world is that?" DD has said she will put them all in albums, but first I need to sort.
Sunday night I started on the first box. I have piles of photos scattered around my bedroom floor that I have been gingerly walking around for 2 days now.
Can anyone give me some ideas or guidelines on how to start sorting? Except for the final albums, nothing needs to be archival quality since they will only be there for a short time. I've thought of buying cheap large plastic kitchen food storage boxes at the dollar store to get started. Is there a better idea?
Not only do I need to know what to sort into, but I need some ideas on categories? My child, my parents, my grandparents, vacations, etc. But what do I do if it is my parents and my grandparents on vacation? How do I break this analysis paralysis?
