One of he first things to do is to organize your photos. Are you a chronological scrapper? Do you scrap by event? No matter this system will work for everyone.
I have designed a template for those inexpensive photo boxes. There is a small one and a larger one that fits the length of the storage box.
Personally, I sort by the year then by the event. I have a photo album for each of my children for all their photos from birth to a year. After that I group them in with the family photos by year/event.
