Phone storage running low? Have to delete an app or two, maybe even some pictures?
Tuh, I’ve been there. As a new mom, everything my daughter does seems to be camera-worthy. If you ever see me around town, you’ll probably see my phone permanently glued to my hand snapping at least 1000 shots to get the perfect picture. And, they are all stored on my phone. Let’s not talk about all the photo sessions we’ve had so far. If it was up to me I’ll hire a personal photographer to take every day. #celebstyle
With all these pictures I’ve accumulated within the past 2 years, I had to purchase bigger storage space for my phone, so instead of having to limit my pictures to my phone, I found different ways to store photos.
Google Photos automatically stores any photo you take onto the app. Just sign up and they will store them for you to save space on your phone. But hurry and install, they are
USB/ micro storage disc
Upload pictures to a USB or storage disc if you have a regular camera or just upload to your computer then onto the disc.
Set up an email account where you can email some of your favorite pictures to just that account and access them whenever you need them.
Many stores carry a photo and craft keeper box that can come in either rainbow or clear. A suggestion I found on Instagram was to print out your fav photos of the month or even the whole year and store them in smaller containers, and you can label them by the year or month.
This is pretty old school. Get your family involved. This is a fun way to keep the memories and stories alive. If you do it monthly, everyone can create a page for the book and at the end of the year put all the pages together to create an annual memory book. Or at the end of the year gather everyone’s favorite moments and put a book together.
This is different from a scrapbook. The one pictured was created by Time Worn Tales Photography where we created a memory book from a photoshoot. But if you prefer to create one yourself you can use any photo center company and create your own book. Listed are a few of my favorite stores:
Plus many more that I don’t even know about
Shutterfly usually gives free prints but you’ve to pay for shipping. Sometimes Walgreens gives codes for free prints every now and then through the app.
SN: Most of these companies also have fun ways to print your pictures. You can put them on blankets, mugs, calendars the list goes on!
These are just a few ways you can store your photos. I’m always looking for new creative ideas. What are some ways you store your photos? Let me know in the comments. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
