With most of our photos on our phones and computers, we may not need massive amounts of storage for our pictures. Yet, as I clean out corners of my house, I constantly find small stacks of photos that need a better place than being shoved in the back of a drawer. And I bet you do, too.

Let's get our actually printed-off photos — old family pictures, Polaroids, prints from Shutterfly or Target — organized into boxes and portfolios so that we're able to enjoy our memories and keepsakes.

Best Photo Storage Box

Keep your 4x6 or 3x5 photos organized with this heavyweight storage box, which has six interior dividers to organize your pictures by date or event. The boxes are easy to stack and have convenient leather handles for quick access.

Best Photo Carrier

Incredibly handy and colorful, this carrier houses 12 individual cases that each hold 100 photos. Each case is acid-free so your photos are protected and the set comes with two boxes of each color. The individual cases are easy to throw in a backpack, purse or briefcase if you need to take photos with you on the go.

Best 5x7 Photo Storage

For your slightly larger photos, grab this six-case storage box, which holds up to 600 5x7 photos, and of course, will house your smaller pics as well. Clearly label each case for quick identification and organization.

Best 8x10 Photo Storage

Protect your larger photos from getting bent or creased by storing them in these stackable cases. The set comes with four cases, and each has a snap-shut latch to keep everything organized and secure. In addition to pictures, these storage boxes are ideal for stowing away other important documents.

Best Portfolio Photo Storage

Available in three different sizes, including an option for 11x14 photos, these portfolios are made with archival quality materials so that your photos won't fade or deteriorate over time. Clean and streamlined, these modern portfolios line up neatly on a bookshelf.

Best Large-Capacity Photo Storage

If you need to maximize your storage capacity, this set of four boxes holds 300 photos each without taking up a ton of storage in your drawer or on your bookshelf.

Most Versatile Photo Storage Box

Perfect for art and craft supplies, these multipurpose boxes are also useful for storing photos. The portable box has two to eight removable dividers so that you can customize it to your storage needs.
