Do you have boxes of photos waiting for the perfect Saturday to come so you can organize and put them in albums? What about a VHS tape of your wedding, yet your husband threw out the VHS player when DVDs took over our movie viewing.
I have thousands of photos, tapes, negatives, and more sitting in boxes waiting for me to organize them. Well, they’ve been sitting there for nearly ten years so you could say that they are aging gracefully.
Recently, I discovered Legacybox, and I am excited to partner with them to help me get my precious memories digitized and give you the opportunity to win a HUGE closet sized digital package for you to digitize all of your favorite memories.
I loved the Legacybox concept at first sight. They can digitize old movies, reels, photos, film, audio and more. Giving my family a lifetime of memories in a digital format -a format I prefer so I can print, share online, and keep forever in our cloud backup.
The process was easy; all I had to do is fill my Legacybox with my photos, wedding video, and other memories, and ship it off. The most difficult part, I believe, is deciding what to digitize!
In return, you get everything you send them back on DVD’s, or you can upgrade to thumb drive backups. The DVD’s were ok for me because all I had to do after is transfer the files to my Dropbox and I was set!
Living in Louisiana, my family has the very special “evacuation box” for emergencies. This box is full of photo albums, more photos that I just never got around to putting in an album, and our wedding video. If you have never had to evacuate your home for bad weather, you will have to trust me that it’s a very hard decision to choose what your most valuable items are that can fit in the car with your family.
These memories are irreplaceable, from our wedding to the birth of our first child. These are moments we captured before the world of digital photography. Having lived through Hurricane Katrina, we have many family and friends who had already lost all of their photos and videos. So with that in mind, digitizing our memories has been a priority of ours, but I never had the time to scan each photo myself nor the technology to transfer audio or video tapes to a DVD.
So after careful sifting through many (many!) photos, which provided an entire weekend of fun conversations with the kids and lots of stories told, the first round of memories were shipped in our prepaid and labeled Legacybox.
The process was easy and tons of fun. The hardest part was waiting to get my Legacybox back with my memories that will last forever.

From time to time, I work with awesome companies. Today’s post was brought to you by Legacybox. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that encourage my creativity.
Old family photos, home videos when my children were growing up.
I would put pictures of my two little girls in this!
Legacybox sounds awesome! I have four kids and tons of printed photos and various sizes of video tapes that I would love to get organized and preserved! Thanks for sharing this information!
Digitizing memories sounds like an awesome idea! My first child was born during the polaroid era so I’m not sure if those can be transferred to digital or not but I would love it! Old photos do tend to fade as well so Legacybox sounds like the way to go. I have tons of old memories sitting around in boxes that I never got around to putting in scrapbooks. What a great way to organize and control the chaos! I will definitely check more into this!
What a great give away, it has always been on my list to do and never gets done… Pictures of my 3 kids growing up would be my priority if I had to choose. Thanks!
Honestly, just all of the family photos. Anything that documents the changes everyone has gone through. It’s so fun to look back 5,10,20 years and get a glimpse of the past.
Lots of old movies from when my daughter was young and have some of my grandmother’s old pictures.
I have a box of 8mm home movies from my grandmother of my mother as a child that I would love to get digitized to share with my daughters.
Our family is really big into mapping our genealogy and this would come in handy for so many different things. I have so many old prints and reels i’d love to digitize and document. It would be so fantastic to preserve all the memories and bring things into the digital age. Hopefully also restoring old photos that can be scanned and edited back to life.
This is such a cool give away to offer!!
Thank you for the chance to enter 🙂
I would love to save my photos from my kids special moments, 1st years, baptism, first communion etc.
I would put pictures of my passed father on cd for his grandkids who never met him.
A few years ago I scanned AAALLL our old family photos and the photos from our grandparents back that my parents had and made cd’s for all my siblings and thumb drives for my parents and myself. This way sounds soooo much easier.
We have so many home movies from my childhood that we have been meaning to digitize for years.
Oh, I have been so anxious to try these types of services! I grew up in a family with 11 kids, and now I have 7 of my own. I told my mom I would give her this as a gift, but then I checked the prices – OUCH! Is there a better way? YES – win it in a giveaway! 🙂
The printed photos I have of my young family are so precious, this service would actually save them! I want to tear up when I see these photos and remember my precious babies, I don’t want to tear up because the photos get damaged!
Definitely wedding photos and wedding album plus pictures of the kids. And maybe birth video Of one of my kids
would love to digitize pictures from my childhood and my parents’ pictures (immigrants) before they are lost forever!
Wow, I have just the tape that I have never watched yet. It was filmed a few days before I gave birth to my son -birth (2008), but I’ve never watched the footage as I don’t the converter tape..(borrowed a camera). We also just did my grandfather’s reels from 1960’s-1983 ish, but I’d wish I’d know about this. Our next project is my mothers camcorder tapes…Sounds like a great company to go with!!
Love this idea! Without a service, how would we ever get around to doing this ourselves? I’d love to be able to preserve our family photos, some of which go back to another continent over several generations.
I would want my VHS wedding video, tons of prints, and my kids’ saved artwork all digitized. Seems there is never time to put in albums, and I even have the empty albums!
I would love to preserve & cherish photos & videos of my children, especially when they were young, thanks
Pictures from my childhood and my husband’s for our kids and future grandchildren to enjoy!
I love the idea of an evacuation box of memories and will have to see if I can get organized enough this year to get one completed. Married 30+ years, 2 kids and 1 granddaughter means lots of photos and videos so a prize from Legacybox would be great !!
What a neat concept!
I would love to digitize my wedding pictures!!
What a great idea. I have so many memories on all kinds of media and have not had the time to get them all into one format.
What a great idea! I would love to digitize older photos of my grandparents and parents as children. Family history is so soon lost, and it would be great to be able to share the memories with my siblings and children.
This looks great – I would love to use a Legacy Box to help my mom sort out her many years of printed family photography that she has stored at her house.
I am a stay at home mommie of 3. I have pictures printed in boxes, cd’s of pictures in boxes and pictures in my phone. After my first was born I was able to do a memory box, but not with the second two. I would love to save memories of my first moments with my three babies. Nothing to me is more worth saving than that. Thank you for this opportunity, Laura. Xo
I have pics that were left to me by my parents. They are pics of my brothers and I – special events, family vacations. My folks are no longer with us; likewise, one of my brothers has died. I have kept pictures from my days in nursing school, my children growing up, as well as my grandchildren. Something like this would organize them not only for me, but for my family going forward.
I would not be able to decide. I would have to do every single picture.
we have videos and pictures from my parents wedding all the way to now. how wonderful to put everything together for my parents and my children to enjoy.
I have a LOT of pictures of my daughter and I also have a lot of pictures of my parents growing up.
wow, in my attempt to reduce clutter in 2016, i would love to digitize my 19+ years of my kids’ photos but not sure where i would start to pick which ones…. maybe i need to order 2 HUGE boxes!
This is the first time I’ve heard about Legacybox and I’m excited to investigate this further. I have four children but one was born prior to the digital age so I have a lot of film negatives, pictures, and video on VHS and 8mm tape. I’d love to digitize all of these memories I have so I can relive his childhood. Some of these things, like the videos, I’ve never watched. I don’t have a VCR and it was always a hassle to set up the cords to connect to the TV. I would really enjoy seeing my now 18 year old as a little boy again. Thank you!
I want to save all the precious memories of my babies growing up.
I have a senior in High School and he will graduate and go onto College soon… I would love to digitize his photos of his entire life and get them ready for his launch from the nest. I love your blog and recipes. Thank You! 🙂
I could not get the submit button to work for the legacybox package. I tried with both safari and googlechrome. What steps should I take?
I’m not sure what’s wrong Lisa, but you can click here and enter here as well.
Family photos and scrapbooks are a treasure to me. I am hoping to scan a lot of photos this winter, but legacy box could make this task so much easier!!
I need to save all my memories from my little ones, they grow so fast.
I like most have the big box of photos that I swear will get sorted through and put into albums one day. But I also know that this will most likely never happen until my kids are grown and I have too much time on my hands. My fear is by then I won’t remember who half of the people I am looking at are. SO this would be ideal for me!
We have the funniest video of my brothers and I on a Beta tape and I would love nothing else than to preserve it for all time!!
I love the idea of having everything on DVD’s. We have 4 children and many adventures. So many pictures to chose from to put in an album is so hard.
I would love to see pictures from my mom’s childhood
Thank you for the information about Legacybox! I have been wanting to find someplace that does this. It’s nice to know someone who has done it. I want to preserve our wedding video, pictures of the kids, my parents and grandparents.
Memories from my childhood
oh this is a great idea … i would love to save our wedding and all those baby pictures — thank you for the chance!
Would love to scan all the pictures my mom has all over her house, including all of my sibling’s photos, etc.
I’ve been wanting to do this for my parents for years! I’d love to get this for them!
I have photos from my childhood and of a grandparent that has passed away that I would like to preserve my my children, so they can enjoy in the years to come.
Can I keep them all? 🙂
I have a closet full of photo boxes 🙁
And a lockbox full too. I have never heard of this service! Thanks for the info! But, I hope to win!!!!
This would be great to preserve items from our wedding through children through grandchildren to be shared and preserved.
This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Pictures from my childhood, my own growing family and so much video tapes to digitize. Do you also use this service for preserving children’s artwork?
I guess you could. they scan all your memories into a digital format.
I used to be involved with Creative Memories until it went under. It was bought by another company and it isn’t the same. I haven’t been able to keep up with each year of my son’s life. Now that he is in school, I wish I could really contain all the little “bring home” projects, works of art, and academic milestones. Right now, they are sitting in a large tub. I haven’t organized at all and I am afraid that I will start to get the years mixed up. The legacy box looks like the answer to my problem:) I had never heard of it before I read your post. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
I would love to have all of our memories digitized and safe in one place…or two, if they are digitized I can duplicate them and give each family member their own set. How amazing would that be? No more fighting over who will keep them safest. Our lives have been chaotic and the boxes keep moving from one location to the next. Using this service would bring on a great sense of peace.
This is an amazing offer! I lost my mom 18 years ago, it would be fabulous to digitize photos so I can share them easily with my own children now and keep them forever!
As one who lost five years worth of digital pictures when. Oh hard drives went bad, I would love to store what I have now on CD!
I would definitely have my wedding video (which I have never seen since we were married 19 years ago), and my ultrasound videos of my 2 children. I would also love all of my daughter’s childhood photos and my childhood photos digitized. What a great service!
It is very good to hear how the Legacybox works and that you have had great success.
This has to be on my to get it done list.
My husband and I just recently found a big box of VHS-C video tapes starting from when we were just 19 & 20 years old! We are 37 & 38 now and would love to show our kids. There was sledding and our first pets and our first home. Would love to win the Legacybox gift!! ❤
Legacy box sounds amazing efficient and easy! Thank you for the intro and chance to win! I have so many pictures and videos when my husband and I were dating, our wedding, and our first baby! Would be so great to have these digitized!
Definitely our wedding video, as well as transferring some old VHS vacation videos…..
I would love to digitalize my wedding pictures as well as some old family photos and videos from my childhood. What a great concept Legacy box is!
I would love to preserve the wedding pics, baby pics and most importantly pictures of my grandparents (who are no longer with us)!!!
I’d like to digitize photos of those people no longer with us, especially photos of them with my children.
This is so exciting! I have not heard of this company. But, like you, I got married and began having children before digital cameras. I would love to have some things (lots of them…) digitized. Even some of my childhood.
We have so many pictures of family and we are now all over. It would be great for everyone to be able to share.
The first couple years of my triplets! They were so cute!
I would love to get pictures from my mother in law to digitize to preserve family history.
I have lost so many memories due to computer failure and crashing. Everything gone. So sad. I would love to have this so I don’t lose what I have from now on.
I’d love to get our wedding video into digital format for our 20th this summer 🙂
My siblings and I were discussing one time how to go about preserving memories from our childhood since most of them have not been digitized. This would be perfect.
After my Mom died I took over ALL of the family photos that she had squirreled away. I have had the best intentions, for the last 20 years, to scan them but there never seems to be enough time. I would love to be able to share them with our extended family.
This couldn’t have come at a note perfect time! I’m in the process of adopting a minimalist lifestyle. It’s been challenging because I’m very sentimental. This will help me keep the memories but in a much smaller space.
Oh this would be wonderful! I have 5+ years of pictures from my son’s birth to memorable events that are just sitting and waiting for me 🙂
What a wonderful idea! I have our wedding video, some ultrasound videos and TONS of pictures sitting in a box much like yours that need to be gone through and digitized. It kills me to think they could be lost to me some day as (sshhhh…) I don’t even know where they are right now!
I’m very excited to hear about legacybox. I used to love to scrapbook and since I became a mother it has been quite the challenge. I have an unorganized box of “favorite moments” from the both of our child to to our wedding to the childhood pictures of great great relatives. Thanks for sharing this info!
