This week, I have been doing my yearly purge to make room for more baby things and keep our tiny hobbit-home organized. This is our third year of sorting, donating, and selling items as a couple, and I can say we have gotten much better at it... but we still kind of stink at it. Having to feel like you are parting with memories is a difficult task, so that's why I wanted to share my new favorite discovery... Chatbooks!
All of my fellow sentimental, hoarders-at-heart (yet wannabe-minimalists) can rejoice! Chatbooks creates automated photo books syncing with your Instagram accounts or hashtags! Did you catch that I said it's automatically loaded into the book for you?!
I can't take credit for discovering this though... Actually my friend, Blair, told me about it (from Wild & Precious -- you should go check out her way-more-awesome blog). The price is just $8 per book for 60 pages with FREE SHIPPING, and you can receive your volumes at any rate you so desire.
THE INSIDE SCOOP:
I also would like to add that Chatbooks did not pay me to make this post, but if you do use my code then I'll get a bonus Chatbook-buck! Woohoo! Also, you will get a code to share with your friends and family. ALSO- My first order was actually messed up due to Instagram bugs, but the Chatbooks customer service was so phenomenal that they gave me some books for free!
Anyway, I hope this idea helps some other parents out there who want to keep track of family photos but never have time to organize or print them. It's like having a tiny elf to print all your photos for you and organize all of your journal entries in a scrapbook... except it's real and it's only 8 bucks!
