This is the time of year where parents and kids want to keep certain items as a memory and keepsakes so they are protected and can be displayed or shared with family members. Many people have a hard time trying to figure out the best way to store and protect family pictures, newspaper articles or sports memorabilia. Here are some ideas and some solutions for the best way to keep your memorabilia items safe.
Now that the baseball season is over with the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series (yes it is still unbelievable to say that in Chicago), the fans are looking to store their memorabilia items from the games. One solution are items from The Container Store www.containerstore.com and ideas on Amazon www.amazon.com to organize your sports memorabilia. I have worked with several clients where they have several items that they cherish and want to keep safe and I help them solve their problems.
Also parents love taking pictures of their kids when they are in school plays, high school football games and prom. Many people do not print out pictures anymore but have them stored on their cellular phones. You can download pictures to your computer or go to Dropbox www.dropbox.com to find out solutions to organize your pictures. Also archive boxes are a secure and easy way to keep newspaper clippings, fine linens and christening gowns safe. The boxes are easy to stack and can be stored in closets, under the beds or shelving units.
If you have young kids or have grand kids and you want to preserve their special artwork you can do that with artist portfolio. There are several solutions online or you can go to the store Michaels Arts & Crafts, www.michaels.com, for solutions to protect their art projects or paintings. This is a great way to keep your kids artwork organized and the artist portfolio can hold many projects instead of having them all over your kitchen or dining room table.
As many of my clients know I always recommend to them to protect and honor their family memorabilia items and keep them in a safe place. I always see the joy and happiness on my clients face when they come across these items and it is my job to help them protect and preserve them the best way I can. If you have any questions about how to organize your memorabilia items or other organizing questions please contact me and I would be happy to help you find solutions to your specific needs. Thank you and I hope you all enjoy the holidays!
