Print your vacation photos. Whether you enjoy crafting albums by hand or prefer to order a photo book or prints with a few clicks of the mouse, completing this task while the memories are still fresh is the easiest way to stay on top of the endless stream of family photos. Went somewhere really memorable? Turn your favorite shots into a calendar or holiday cards. If you save your photos in a cloud-based storage system, taking the time to tag each photo with helpful keywords (like beach, 2015, Grandma Betty) will make retrieving the photos you want later easier.
