Do people really look at those photos? I have boxes and boxes of them as I became the the keeper of photos and movies for the whole family, going back a couple of generations. They take up enormous space for seemingly no reason, but of course I can’t just pitch them. Should I spend time sorting and organizing, only to shove it all back in the closet? I’m not interested in displaying it. Lost on what to do.

I PLAN to look at them all again, but as they say: Man plans, G-d laughs. :)
