My 2006 scrapbook is all complete. It’s time for my 2006 photos to head off into the sunset (aka backup). As I mentioned in my photo process post, I purge photos heavily after scrapbooking. How did I do here?
When I started the 2006 album, I had 620 photos.
After purging, I ended up with 173 photos.
Note, this does not include the 1057 wedding and honeymoon photos from 2006. I already purged those when I finished the wedding scrapbook, taking them down from about 4000.
That means I’m keeping about 25-30% of my photos permanently. Not bad, I think.
It will be interesting to see how I do in the years to come, I’m going to try and make sure I get a count before I start the next album.
I almost made a graph here but decided to spare you. Maybe next year?
