|The ugly photo boxes|
|Matching black photo boxes|
These were easy to switch over in seconds to the beautiful new black photo box.
One of the boxes just has various photos thrown in there. Some are from when my husband and I were children, others are from Christmas cards, and who knows where the rest are really from! I did find a couple items in the box as I was doing the transfer that I pulled out to get rid of. Otherwise, for now I just left the pile as messy as I found it.
I thought I had let go of actual negatives. I was wrong. I actually kept them and bought negative sleeves to keep them in! They are organized by date. I'm impressed with my former self!!
I couldn't get them back into the boxes. Maybe the boxes are slightly smaller? I will find another place to store them, while I consider whether they need to be kept. I'm pretty sure the answer is no, considering not once have I needed a negative from these neatly organized files in nearly 18 years!
My new black photo boxes went back on the shelf in our basement where I had the original boxes stored. They look so much better! The old ones are being donated. It might be easy to say that I could find another use for them, but I dislike the patterns so much at this point I don't want to see them again!
What do you think? Better? Have you done a mini update lately that made you feel a little better about your home?
