“Decluttering Tips for your Big Pandemic Purge” By Microsoft News

Cheapism, the widely popular site profiled ScanMyPhotos.com. Cheapism features product reviews and recommendations for every budget. Personal finance and money-saving tips on home, travel, food, technology, and healthy living.

Written by Andrew Lisa and published by msn.com, here is the story: “With people across the country cooped up at home, it’s more important than ever to maintain a liveable space. The COVID-19 crisis makes decluttering for the whole family, from kids to seniors, a necessity whether it’s a fast job or not, but it also forces some changes in how you have to go about trimming the fat and getting organized. Here are a few expert tips on how to downsize safely so you can make the most out of the space you’re stuck in.”



Digitize Old Photos: Digitizing those mountains of old physical photographs can preserve precious pictures for safekeeping while also clearing lots of clutter.

one cent photo scanning by ScanMyPhotos.com“While traveling is off limits as families stay safe at home, there is a way to revisit past adventures while decluttering your lifetime of photo snapshots,” says Mitch Goldstone of ScanMyPhotos.com. “Gather all those shoeboxes and albums to digitize long-forgotten pictures.” In reality, however, scanning them one by one or even batch by batch into your printer’s scanner is simply not a practical use of time.

Entrepreneurs with professional equipment have stepped in to fill that void, many at a very reasonable price. Goldstone’s company, for example, will digitize 4,000 photos for $40, or a penny per photo.

Why Nostalgia Will Replace Turkey Dinners on #Thanksgiving

This holiday season as we must stay safe and forgo traditional family gatherings, nostalgia will replace family reunions. Welcome to our regular updates from the world of photography and family nostalgia.

Discover Magazine published this article on: “Why Do We Feel Nostalgia? The pandemic has made many of us nostalgic for the past. Mental health experts say it can be a force for good or bad in the human psyche.” Written by Carina Woudenberg. More.

Excerpt: Living through eight months of a pandemic is liable to make one yearn for the days of live music, large family gatherings, and even carefree visits to the grocery store. We largely took these activities for granted before the virus took hold of our lives, now leaving us with a longing for the past.

Companies that digitize family photos and video collections are reporting a major boost in sales in recent months. And nostalgia could be to blame.

Digitize Pictures TO Preserve Your Family Nostalgia“Because people are unable to travel and create new experiences, nostalgia is trending,” says Mitch Goldstone, chief executive officer at ScanMyPhotos.com. Since shelter-in-place orders began in March in the U.S., his company has seen a nearly 625 percent increase in demand for their services.

Anything from childhood friends to discontinued candy bars can spark feelings of nostalgia. It all begs the question of how this serves our psyche. Mental health experts say it can be a double-edged sword.

Why to digitize pictures BEFORE a mandatory evacuation

During a mandatory evacuation, are you prepared?

When you have seconds to escape, what do you grab from your home? What would you do when a briskly spreading firestorm with hurricane-force winds threatens your family and home?

Thirty years ago, we chose Irvine as the home to ScanMyPhotos.com. It ranks among the safest cities in the nation and boasts a world-renowned master plan to protect homes and businesses. Our corporate headquarters is safely situated in a secured part of the city–far away from the scene of Monday’s danger zone.

emer2 300x260 - Why to digitize pictures BEFORE a mandatory evacuation For myself and a third of all Irvine, California residents, there was scarcely time to nestle people and pets–two of the three “P’s” [people, pets, pictures] and escape.

There was no time for racing through the house to find photo albums and boxes of long-forgotten pictures.

This preparedness message is shared for anyone who never experienced a menacing wildfire or hurricane disaster that threatened their home.

Irvine Emergency Evacuation Alert

A piercing, life-threatening emergency warning alert whooped on my phone. With smoky ash raining down, the wildfire storm was real. Embers swirled, and the stench of smoke hurt your lungs. A dark haze made visibility impossible.

Roads were blocked, and traffic gridlocked. I grabbed the family and pets as immediate evacuation orders were broadcast.

This was not a test of the emergency broadcasting system but a real-world catastrophe. Overhead, I saw water-dropping helicopters and giant aircraft tankers unloading water and Phos-Chek fire retardant. The gale-force winds made direct water drops a challenge.

KTLA: Irvine Wildfire evacuationAfter safely evacuating, I saw my house on live local and national TV news programs.

The good news is our valiant firefighter heroes in Orange County, California, saved the day without any property damage. Sadly, two firefighters were critically injured.

This perilous experience is a reminder about what we have always discussed. The last thing you should worry about is your decades-past pictures, 35mm slides, film negatives, home movies, and VHS cassettes.

All must be digitized and stored off-site. Make multiple copies for safekeeping. Where are your photographs, and what about everyone you know? Are your family and friend’s irreplaceable snapshots digitized?
