Got a quick question...
Its now getting to the point where i have hundreds and hundreds of photos packets all over the place and want to know if anyone out there has come across any sort of shelf or box or anything that you can buy to store them all in????...
I still shoot print and then scan with my flatbed scanner, so i have all these packs of photos lying around everywhere!!!......and im starting to lose track of them all.....

I bought some rubbermaid containers from Kmart (I'm sure theres a similar department type store in Melbourne) that are specifically for photos, fits over 30 packets in one container.
They're still pretty unorganized though in terms of being labeled and knowing whats inside... I'll get around to that the day I get a negative scanner.
I have the same problem on my computer, all of my photos are saved with non-descriptive filenames like 12.4 or something scattered throughout hundreds of folders. If my harddrive crashes I'm screwed! I better burn them all soon...

if you (or someone else in your family) buys a lot of shoes, you can the boxes from those.
That's what I usually do (when I have boxes that is). The negatives are stored in binders using special sleeves that are crossreferenced to a serial number I write on the package.
I also sort the prints before storing them, throwing away half or more typically. Saves a lot of space.
