Monday: Product Review "Get Organized"

Today's product review is the Power Sort Box $35.

As always before you start a project the first step is to get organized. A couple of weeks ago I posted about the memory Manager software, which happens to be a really good way to organize your digital photos. But what about all those printed 4x6's that most of use still have in boxes and the envelopes that they came back in from being developed. Well I would say that you can't get organized without this product.

Now I never say that their is only one way to do something, but this is definately the easiest, and safest way to organize your photos.

I LOVE this box. I have two and probably need 3. Each one holds 2400 pictures. They are designed so that you can easily find and label your photos. The box comes with 12 compartments. So when your ready to work on your photo albums you just grab the appropriate compartment and get to work. It is black for a reason. It protects your photos from the damaging sunlight.

Just before the summer me and my mom decided to get all her photos organized. So we dug out all her pictures starting from 1979-2001 and we are a least half way there in less than 8 hours of work. All her pictures are in years and some years are already sorted by events and dates. We have filled two sort boxes and have stopped until we get those put into albums. I have some organizing tips and secrets that you can learn at one of my organizing workshops. I will be offering those one in October. So keep checking here to find out when and how to sign up. As for the Power Sort box. Its a "Must Have"!
