Keep a memory file on your computer
Here is an idea for grand parents and parents. This year I started memory file on my computer. Since I have 14 grandchildren, I get lots of color sheets, notes, cards, etc. from all the little munchkins. I love it and usually keep these things around for a while.. But it is too hard to save everything. Therefore I started taking pictures of all my notes and cards and gifts and put them in a file.
I actually see them from time to time while looking at pictures or watching a slide show on my computer. I love it! Sometimes I will take several items from a month and make a collage out of them like the one below:
And the best part – I don’t feel like I have to save every little note that comes my way by stuffing it in a drawer or box where I will never see it again. This way I have everything and I can enjoy all these special treasures from our 14 munchkins.
