Photograph Organization

I used to be really good about keeping my photographs organized, but since I went digital, everything’s gone sort of haywire. Right now I have an enormous plastic bin of stuff, among which is included my collection of photo albums: those little kind that hold one photograph per page. This red plastic suitcase thing pictured above once held only odd-sized photos (such as school pictures or anything larger than 4×6″), but lately I’ve been stuffing all photos I get in there because I can’t bring myself to face the albums.

Ideally, I’d like to move everything into full-size binders with plastic pocket sheets. I’m not sure how easy these are to find. I’ve found horizontal ones, but so far no vertical, which is annoying. I figure I can use the trading-card-sized ones for some of the smaller photos, though I’m not sure what to do with the old school photos, since they’re just a teensy bit bigger than the 2×2″ slide pages. For that matter, the horizontal 2.5×3.5″ ones won’t look too great in the trading card pockets either, but I can probably deal with that.

And what about the really weird-shaped ones? I’ve got a few that are 4×7″, 4×8″, 3×4.25″, Polaroids… you get the idea. I know the “magnetic” photo pages are a bad idea over the long term, so I’m open to suggestions. What do you do with your photos?  And don’t tell me to just scan them and trash the originals; that’s not an option. :P

P.S. – I have a bunch more copies of that wedding photo there on top if anyone would like one.
