A picture is worth a great memory and a less cluttered home!

Having a hard time getting rid of some of that extra memorabilia you’ve been carrying around in life with you?  Cleaning our basement makes me realize a lot of these items are more about the remembering of the times had or the moment given!

I’ve read about taking a snapshot of the cherished item in order to memorialize it but still allow for you to pass it along or get rid of it (while retaining the memories).  Might be worth a try, as I try to get back to simpler times, more focused on people and less on things.

In addition to this, taking pictures of all your prized possessions can be helpful in case of an insurance loss.  Just be sure to think about storage of the images.  Try to either have someone you trust keep the images, store them in a safe deposit box, or upload them to a reputable cloud provider (could even use Google drive).  Over time, commonly used media changes, so be sure to keep your way of storing the images up to date so that they may be accessed.  Also, double-check (preferably on another PC, etc.) that the disk or whatever media is able to be read properly.
