Declutter the Extra Pictures!

Advise:  Don’t keep every copy of every picture!  Get rid of them before they become clutter.

Kiddo #1’s mother-in-law asked for some baby pictures of Kiddo #1.  That part was “easy”.

Oh, the memories!  It took longer than expected to find our favorite pics.  John and I laughed over some of our attempted family selfies from 30 years ago.  (Those are not getting published!)

Going through and eliminating all the duplicate/triplicate/millioncate copies of the pictures was also easy to do.  Why did I keep every copy of every picture??

We also found the extra baby announcements you get with the hospital pictures.  Kiddo #1 is 30!  Why did I keep the extra 7 announcements for 30 years??  My attitude toward these extras has changed so much – it was easy to recycle them (30 years later!)

62 items decluttered!  The picture box is a little lighter today!

Below is kiddo#1:  left picture is the official hospital pic – got rid of 3 sheets of extra pictures;  right picture is her 6 month pic – got rid of 4 sheets of extras.
