Book Description

For two decades, I have been helping families organize their photos and memorabilia. It is a daunting and overwhelming task for most.

When I started this journey, I was married, without children. I had the advantage of getting all of my photos & our extended older heritage photos organized and in albums before we added kiddos to the mix.

Being a photo consultant, when we did have children, I was able to set up systems to keep my kids’ albums current. Since photos were my “job,” I could take the time and money and get the job done without guilt.

I was also a team leader. I spent my days encouraging my team as well as customers to “just do it!” It was truly a unique situation.

Along the way, I started completing albums for other people as well. Now, as a professional organizer, I see how photos and memorabilia are stored inside the home.

And it ain’t pretty, my friends. When you move into your home, there isn’t a “photo and memorabilia” closet or designated room.

A box gets filled here, a drawer there.

In the past, photos were developed, flipped through and then “stored” -anywhere. End tables, kitchens, desk drawers - you name it.

Now, digital prints are viewed and stored on the computer. And I have seen some great ways people enjoy those. But I am a sentimental, picture-in-hand kinda gal.

I am still making paper albums – except in one category. I just love the feel of that big album and my handwritten words on the page for my children to read.

I was one of my last friends to buy a digital camera, and I would only take the plunge with a digital SLR. Still to this day, all my pictures are taken with that camera.

This book is not for the iPhone generation. It is for those of you struggling to make sense of the physical pieces of paper that make up your heritage and your family’s story.

Just as in my eBook, 10 Steps to Organized Paper, the following chapters are ordered from the easiest to accomplish to the most time-consuming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally I can control the clutter October 3, 2013

Lisa once again presents actual and helpful steps. In her book, she breaks down the mountain into molehills...and we can tackle the molehill even if the mountain seems over whelming.

Having a large family always meant having or trying to keep everything just in case we needed it again. This included memorabilia for each child. Lisa's book is a great way to get started in managing the volumes of pictures and memorabilia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great help! September 4, 2013
Lisa's "Ten Steps to Organized Paper" makes the inevitable paper mountain something anyone can tackle...and she's done the same thing with this new eBook. I have boxes of photos and other memorabilia lurking around to be dealt with...someday. Well, I'm putting it on my calendar, because she has broken down the steps to success with this book, too. Just one chapter and task at a time--and my goal is that for CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR, I am giving gifts of memories. I cannot wait. What a great project to start on for the fall. I'm excited!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed November 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
This book was basically just a recap of what the author did with her photos and memorabilia. It was very narrow in its approach to a daunting project for most people. A personal touch is fine but there were not enough ideas, especially for digital photos - mostly this was promoting photo albums and scrapbooking. I came away with little help except the obvious - sort the photos, make photo books or scrapbooks, make picture collages. Also, there were several typos, and a couple of times it seemed like a link or a list at the end of a paragraph was missing (for favorite products for sorting, for one). I'm afraid this is another example of how easy it is for anyone to publish an e-book - price it cheaper than a book but more expensive than an app - very little quality content.
