Organizing Pictures and Memories?

Now that I am almost organized (Thank you Thriftyfun)..

I decided to take down the stuff off my walls. "Stuff" being pictures, stickers, movie tickets, song lyrics, anything and everything you can imagine that looks kinda neat. I have taped it up there for years now.


I have so much stuff. I orginally started this because I am a pack rat, and I love to save all these pictures and memories, so just throwing them away is not an option.

I thought about buying a scrapbook and trying to scrapbook it all, but thats an expensive hobby, and I'm beyond broke.

Since I will be moving soon, this needs to be portable, and I'd like to look through it every once in awhile.

Does anyone have any ideas?

you can do it the "old fashioned" scrapbook way, or just collect it in a binder.

Exactly. Tape things into a spiral notebook and use the lines in any remaining spaces (or on the facing page) to write down why you like it or when you got or some story related to it. That's may favorite, and it only costs the price of a notebook, a roll of tape, and a writing implement.


Or you could use a three-ring notebook and paper. Then some of the larger items could be folded and put into pocket folders.

If you have a filing cabinet, you could make some file folders to store things. Or you could find a box with a lid to store things in. Or label some large envelopes, put things in the envelopes, and store the envelopes on a bookshelf, between books.

You can scrapbook fairly cheap by using construction paper and sheet protectors in a binder. Use a sheet of construction paper for the background. Then use scrap pieces for a 3-D effect behind the picture or memory item. You can use acid free pens or markers for journaling. It will add a special touch too versus buying stickers.

i have so many pictures and love to save everything. i use a binder that has sticky pages , and clear report covers , you can find them at wallmart.


i put things that are too bulky or multiple sheets in 1 page, old 8x10 pics too. then for all your old wallet pics you can pic up the clear sheets used for football cards. very cheap. hope this helps
