In today’s digital age, our phone camera rolls have become virtual treasure troves of memories, capturing moments both big and small. However, managing these ever-growing collections of photos can quickly become overwhelming. 😫
Here’s your 3 step plan for taking back control of your phone photos!
Let’s dive right in!
I’m going to say it…..
You DO NOT need 100 photos of your kid blowing out candles.
You need 2 (maybe 3 if you’re very convincing). Go through and choose your ABSOLUTE faves, then delete the rest.
Look for images that evoke strong emotions, capture significant events, or simply showcase your photography skills.
By curating your collection, you’ll create a more streamlined and meaningful experience whenever you revisit your memories.
Now that you have your top picks, it’s time to create albums to organize them efficiently.
Albums don’t have to be boring. Think about the things that bring you joy and that you want to see pop up in your ‘memories’ slideshows. Ex: Europe 2023, Birthdays, Our House, Funny Things Kids Do, Sisters, Shit My Kid Did.
Then (and, this is key, my friend), put the photos into the freshly created albums. A year from now, it’ll make it 8,453 times easier to find the photo you’re looking for.
You know how you clean the kitchen and then 4.6 seconds later it looks like you did absolutely nothing? (This is my daily life btw.) Let’s not let that happen to your phone. To prevent your camera roll from becoming a chaotic mess again, set automated reminders on your phone. I suggest every Sunday evening as a starting point. Spend 10 minutes decluttering and album-izing. And then, you can thank me.
