What to do with Old Photos?

What will we do with hundreds, perhaps thousands of old photos and albums? I think everyone has hoards of old pictures that will rarely ever be viewed, if ever. However they are something you can't simply carry out to the trash much as we would like to. We can't carry them around in a motorhome and we've agreed not to pay for storage for anything. One thought was to digitize them but the tedious job of scanning them one at a time with a flat bed scanner is daunting. Then I found Panadigital:

The Panadigital scanner was $79.95 on Amazon. Actually it cost me $39.95 because they gave me a $40 credit for applying for their credit card. I am a big fan of Amazon; where else can you get the best price, free shipping and no sales tax? Anyway, the scanner needs no computer to use because it stores the scans on an SD card. You can then move the images to your computer when the card is full. It's so easy you can do it while watching television!

This is just the tip of the iceberg. When we get into the attic there will be hundreds more!
