Over the course of our three month journey, we took TONS of photos, naturally. Some were uploaded to our blog, some we added to albums on Facebook, but many of them were just hanging around in a folder on our laptops, as digital photos nowadays tend to do. Sometimes, I just miss having an album to physically pick up, hold, and flip through the pages of. So we decided to print (almost) all of the photos from our trip, which meant lots of photo albums and time spent organizing into chronological order!
It took months of taking advantage of the best coupons those digital prints websites have to offer in order to get everything printed for a fairly reasonable price. Then we found some albums we liked, and bought one here and there as we found coupons for them. Then we spent painstaking hours organizing the photos first by state, then more chronologically, and then sliding them into the pockets. It's amazing how much shoulder, neck and back pain that can cause.
Mel made some fun dividers to designate the switch to a new state along the route.
All told, we now have six binders, each holding 300 photos each, taking up shelf space in our living room, and we couldn't be more thrilled! Let us know if you ever want to stop by and spend a couple of hours flipping through them :)
