Memories Saved in Seconds: Keep a Memory Box
January 2, 2013 by Cristi
It’s the start of a new year! Have you thought about your resolutions?
One of mine is to keep track of all the funny or cute things my son says through out the year. I can’t tell you how many times I mean to write them down and before I know it – I can’t remember exactly what he said! It take less than a minute to jot down- why don’t I do it??
Well, I have found a simple solution that you can do starting now-it’s not too late!
A Memory Box.
Inside this box are index cards divided into each month and then into each day of the month. When something significant happens and you want to remember it, just go to the month and day and jot it down with the year next to it. Then as the years go by, you can go back and pull different cards and see what you wrote down on that particular day.
You will need a recipe box, 365 index cards, at least 12 index dividers, and paper or anything you want to decorate your box with.
I stamped the days for each month on the index card.
Next I pulled out my trusty Mod Podge and glued on the paper.
