Just wondering how people store / label / organize their negatives. Particularly those of you who have led / lead itinerant lifestyles.


If you stay in one place forever, it seems to me that the easiest answer is a filing cabinet and labeled folders. Maybe not? Anyway, just looking for ideas from people who have been "shooting" longer and therefore have likely accumulated more negatives than myself. Most of mine are 35mm, some are 6x7 ... the great majority of them, I will never print again ... but there's always that remote possibility, right?

I have four or five dust-free boxes and plain old notebooks, with negatives in protectors, some with contact sheets ... and some labeled, some not labeled for the last year or so, I've labeled everything.
