An Organized Photo Collection - I WISH!

At this time a year ago,  I was making a photo collage of my daughter for her high school graduation party.  I spent hours rooting through boxes and files on my computer, to find the photos I knew I had somewhere.

Perhaps the time has come to finally get my photo collection more organized ... doing so would surely would help me make better use of my future moments!

I am officially committing to having this done before my son graduates in 2016.

Please hold me accountable!


What are some of your suggestions of how to organize a photo collection?

If you come up with something better, let me know.
