How to Stop Being Overwhelmed by Your Pictures (with a video tutorial)

I am SO excited to bring you this solution!!  Digital photos are a double-edged sword!  We can take as many photos as we want, but then it's easy to become so {overwhelmed from having too many photos} that we never do anything with those images.

One of my favorite solutions to getting out from underneath your photos is a family yearbook by Heritage Makers-- family yearbook because they're SO EASY to organize, and Heritage Makers because of the quality and flexibility, {among other reasons}.

I'm not the only one who loves this option.  Be sure you hop over and see 10 reasons from Candy May about why she prioritizes creating family yearbooks and what they do for her family:  {"10 Good Reasons to Create a Family Yearbook with Heritage Makers,"}

Here's one family yearbook style:

And what it looks like inside--two pages for each month:

I wrote a while back about what makes family yearbooks by Heritage Makers THE BEST SOLUTION I've seen to too many photos, and I included the best way I know to actually CATCH UP ON YOUR PHOTOS (the Two-in-One Plan).  You can read all about it and get all the tips and information you need right here at this link:

{One Solution to Too Many Photos:  Family Yearbooks}

Family yearbooks provide a great way to narrow down your mass of photos into your favorites from each month, so you can actually SEE THEM.  Have you ever thought about that?  Taking tons of pictures often means {you never see them again}!!  Why bother taking them in the first place?

Choose a year's worth of photos you'd like to preserve, then get started by following the five simple steps at the "how to get started" tab at the top right of this blog or by letting me guide you through the process step by step with this video tutorial I made just for LifeTales Books blog readers!

It's a pretty great way to completely change your life.

P.S.  If you need some help with photo organization first, here's one more video help.

Pin and share with someone who would love this idea.

This is such a great solution for when you have too many photos. Right now I have them in a box but I really need to get organized.
