Sometimes you need a strong dose of motivation, or even just a little bit of support. That’s why we created Save Your Photos and Your Sanity™, a step-by-step plan for organizing and protecting your entire photo collection in as little as 10 days . . . without losing your mind! We knew there were so many people out there like us that were overwhelmed with the “seemingly monumental” (o.k. make that “monumental”) task of organizing their photographs. It’s just too big of a job to go it alone. We all need support, encouragement, and even just the sense that we’re not alone in our struggle. So getting back to that confession thing . . . We needed Save Your Photos and Your Sanity™ as much as you do! We poured ourselves into creating the most comprehensive and fun program possible, and just like you, we try to follow that advice! We tell you this not so that you’ll wonder whether or not we’re really qualified to help you, but so that you’ll realize that in our imperfection, we are perfectly qualified to help you. What could we truly offer you if organizing photographs came easily to us? How could we possibly relate to your needs if we could organize photographs as easily as we could breathe? We understand you, because we are “you”. We’re real people who, until recently, felt overwhelmed by the task of organizing our massive photo collections. We found some answers because we needed answers. We dedicated two years to uncovering every tip, every secret, every possible method for simplifying the process of organizing and preserving our precious photographs and memories. And after writing Save Your Photos and Your Sanity™ and following our own helpful advice ;-), we can proudly report that our not-so-perfect photo collections are finally organized! Not perfectly organized, but very reasonably organized, and we were able to accomplish this, once and for all, by following the guidelines outlined in the book. Our photo collections may not be “perfect” but they are safely organized in a way that makes sense to us. Finally, we are enjoying the peace of mind that comes from knowing that we’ve protected our family’s most prized possessions. We’re thrilled to share what we’ve learned so that you too can get your photos organized once and for all, and so that you can enjoy this same peace of mind. Save Your Photos and Your Sanity™ is more than a book, it’s more like a step-by-step course, and it’s delivered electronically right to your computer so you can get started right away!

Standard Photo Envelopes Contain Acid This photograph was stored in a standard photograph envelope, which was provided by the film developing company. Many photo enthusiasts rely on these envelopes to keep their photographs safe. This is a big mistake! This photograph has been discolored and damaged by the acid in the film envelope. The clear line of distinction indicates the placement of the photograph against the paper inside the envelope.
"Save Your Photos and Your Sanity is a must-read if you’re a photo saver, a scrapper or if you just don’t know what to do with the years of accumulated pictures that haunt your basement and closets." — Monica Ricci, Organizing Expert, Author, Radio Host and HGTV regular (Mission Organization)
This “Reader Shout Out” is excerpted from Maria Gracia’s Get Organized Now newsletter: “A few months ago, you suggested the resource, ‘Save Your Photos and Your Sanity’ in your newsletter. At the time, my photos were totally out of control, and when I saw your recommendation, I just had to have it. I’m very happy to say that because of this resource, my piles and boxes of photos that have been accumulating for the past 10 years, are completely and beautifully organized. What wonderful memories, and now I can easily share them with my relatives and friends when they visit! Plus, they’ll be completely organized for my grandkids later on.” –Jerry
Dear Chris and Tracey, . . . I finally pushed myself to sort my photos… this is after years of procrastinating and searching for every excuse under the sun to not get started.

I got your book & printed a copy , put each page in a sheet protector ( you see this allowed me to procrastinate for another week 🙂 It was the female touch in your book that clicked with me. Because I had so many photos I had to use really big plastic boxes… I am now in the final phase of identifying stray negatives and a bunch of "stray" photos. . . . I have been riding high on the sense of accomplishment with that enormous weight lifted from my shoulders Love you guys & thanks, Joanne PS The feeling is as good as losing weight!
