What do you do with all your digital photos? Please share your best tip for rediscovering memories and de-cluttering your hard drive.

I create photobooks to document special events like our wedding, baby's first year, travels, and then for the rest I store them on an external hard drive (one so I know they are safe and two I'm free to delete them off my computer if space is limited)

For car and plane trips, what are some small toys, games, or other fun tiny surprises to bring along or pack in your child's backpack? Please mention the age range for the item and include a link to a picture if you have one.

Our biggest trick was to keep all these toys/activities hidden until the day of travel so they are new and fresh and potential for lasting a few more minutes with a toddlers (1 to 2 years) short attention span. We packed a travel sized magna doodle, coloring supplies, stickers, LOTS of snacks (and a wide variety), Melissa and Doug brand have great little travel activity books (very affordable too), and a few homemade activities that I found on pinterest.
