Mah hair; and how do you store your photos?

You all were too kind on my last post--I am well aware that the boys room looks like amateur hour, but I appreciate the kind comments and suggestions.

Weeks ago I posted that I was getting my hair cut, and dithering between chopping all my hair off again or leaving it to grow longer.  (Time flies when you don't blog very often!)

I walked into the salon having decided to chop it off again.  Then my hairdresser talked me into letting it grow. So it sort of looks pretty much the same as before the haircut.

I know, I know, resting bitch face, I has it. 
I think my hairdresser talked me into letting it grow longer because she herself had cut her hair drastically short a few days prior and hated it so much she promptly got extensions.  Her hair issues may have been projected onto my head, as it were.  However, one drawback to having fabulously stylish short hair is that it needs to be trimmed on a four week basis, and that is just a giant pain.  One of the reasons I want to grow it out is to be free of the constant need for trims.  (I can stretch the gray hairs out for a while, usually 8-10 weeks at a time.)  So I am not unhappy that I am growing it out.  For now, anyway.  That could change at any moment.


I have thousands, nay, possibly hundreds of thousands of digital pictures of my children (and my house.  If I died tomorrow I would be terribly embarrassed that my husband would have to explain to the children why there possibly more pictures of our living room than there are of the children.)  Probably half of the pictures are duplicate shots of the same thing, which is the curse of the digital age and not having to pay to develop film.  Regardless, I have a million gazillion unsorted digital photos sitting on multiple hard drives and cloud devices that need to be sorted and put into some sort of order.  I feel like a hoarder--the project has become so overwhelming and huge that I do not know where to start.

I am not a scrapbooker. I do not want to spend my precious free time organizing photos.  I am probably going to start a fifteen-minute-a-day project to start getting this under control.  But I need some kind of process or end goal to work towards.

How do you keep up with photos?  What simple and easy app or website will fix my problem?
