I know that life is busy. But there are “right” ways of doing things. So here are a couple of tips regarding taking care of important certificates, diplomas, legal documents, ownership titles, irreplaceable children’s art, heirlooms, important photos…
1. making a scrapbook or photo album the right way the first time will save you so much time later… and it can be super easy.
2. Remember, “archival” doesn’t mean that it needs to win an award for design and creativity.
3. All you need is to store these items with correct materials. For example, a photo album at Walmart is acid-free and utilizes the correct kind of plastic. It costs $10! You can fill it with your photos in less than 10 minutes, and there you go!… archival storage.
An example fell into my lap which illustrates what will happen if you ignore my advice! You don’t need to me underwater from a flood or blown to OZ in a hurricane. Natural disasters are not the only ways your precious memories can be damaged.
Case in point! Here is a photo album of photo memories and certificates that was in a cardboard box that got wet on the driveway during a move. My writings and info included in How To Save Your Stuff From A Disaster can help you prevent this from happening. And if it does happen, I can help salvage the photos and help to save valuable info.. In this case, not everything could have been saved but it could have been a lot less catastrophic.
