“I spoke with Mitch Goldstone, co-founder, and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com He said that the average person has over 5000 photos stored in their home and that the greatest time for copying photos is when there is a death of a grandparent, parent or family member or when there is a divorce in the family. And, if a disaster happens then it is too late. So, think about preserving your photos as you do your spring cleaning. This is an easy and affordable solution for digitizing and preserving priceless memories.”

WashPost: Marie Kondo Says Throw Away Pictures, We Agree, AFTER Scanning

Geoffrey Fowler (Washington Post): “What happened when I told Marie Kondo I have a better, higher-tech method of tidying up”

Sparking Controversy Rather than “Joy”

Technology columnist, Geoffrey A. Fowler at The Washington Post reports in his consumer tech column about disagreeing with the unclutter and ‘tiding up” superstar, Marie Kondo. While it is OK to discard clothing and other household items that do not ‘spark joy’ when it comes to your decades of nostalgic photos, there is the first step. Digitize your pictures. “Precious memories don’t need to go into dusty photo albums or the trash. They should go online.”

CLICK TO READ THE WASHINGTON POST ARTICLE

“Marie Kondo argues you should only keep what sparks joy, but The Post’s Geoffrey A. Fowler says that using the cloud to keep all your things is life-changing.”

Excerpt:

But in a world where a smartphone rarely leaves your side, getting rid of material possessions doesn’t have to mean getting rid of memories. The digital camera is as powerful a cleaning tool as a Hefty 30-gallon trash bag.

Souvenirs: Snap, toss. Recipes: Snap, toss. I’ve even said goodbye to old clothes this way, such as my first concert T-shirt. (It was En Vogue, who surely would support freeing your mind of the clutter.)

The problem the cloud can most help solve is piles of photos and papers. You can buy a scanner, or Google has a free and simple Photo Scan app for phones. Easier yet: Try mail-away services that digitize photos for as little as 8 cents per photo, such as ScanMyPhotos.com and ScanCafe.com. Side benefit: Turning old photos digital keeps them safe from fire, floods and further yellowing.
