It may seem strange for a site dedicated to preserving memories to say that our number one tip is: Don’t save it. Throw it out. But it is core to who we are because part of what makes us so overwhelmed by all the stuff we collect and save from our kids, is that we collect and save so much.
At Savor, we are as much about what to save as we are about how to save it. And, as with any artist, editing is key. Not everything is worth keeping. That’s not an insult. To the contrary, to keep everything is to devalue the items that truly are special or pivotal or iconic. Even if we all had all the space in the world to keep everything, if you save too much, no one looks at anything. It just becomes a big mass to look through.
We created The Library to save just what matters most. We toyed a lot with that line of our credo: Save what matters most. But also, only save what matters most. It is intentional that we offer the box sizes we do.
