Getting Organized with GrooveBook

I take a ton of photos for this blog and in life. I like to snap all sorts of things, including my meals, Napoleon and our vacations. I usually use my phone for these photos.

I heard about Groovebook a few weeks ago and wanted to give it a try. The app is free and available for Androids and iPhones. Once you download the app, you fill in all your personal details and add your credit card. The first time you open it, the app asks you to add 100 of your photos to an album. It then sends you a Groovebook filled with your printed photos. Thirty days later, you repeat the process with another set of photos. Your first book has to be 100 photos, but every book after that can be up to 100 photos, depending on how many you select.

The grand cost is $2.99 per month for the photo album. You don't pay for shipping, it's all included.  Since I can never remember to print my photos and most of my memories are trapped on my phone, this is a pretty good deal in my books.

I think this app would be ideal if you have kids, too. I know most of my mommy friends are constantly snapping pics that never see the light of day.

The album turned out to be hilarious. There were photos from our vacation.

Some of my panoramic photos from the cruise.

And a ton of photos of Napoleon.

And some classic photos from older trips, like my trip to Washington, D.C.

Pretty telling, I would say ... Can't wait to see what February brings!

If you want to try a book free, enter code JANOWSKI1 when you sign in for the first time.

I got a free Groovebook for my review, but believe me, the opinions are my own. I'm super psyched about this app and intend to use it for the rest of the year to have a ready-made year in review set of scrapbooks. You can read my disclosures page if you have any questions.

This sounds awesome! I think I'll try it out. How is the paper quality of the photos?

The photos would be fine for framing, but it isn't the best quality paper. The pages are perforated, too, so you can remove them easily.

I think Erin forwarded me a blog post about this from Healthy Tipping Point a few weeks ago! It is such a clever idea! I delete all of the pictures off of my phone when I download them now. Maybe I should put some back on and try it out!
