Create a Memory Page for the Old Year (Frugal Friday)

People spend hundreds, thousands of dollars every year on entertainment and on ways to improve themselves and their family relationships. While some of that money is very well spent, often we can find less expensive ways of having fun and learning to appreciate our families.
One way that you can have fun and fall in love with your family all over again is to create a memory page of the past year. Back in my scrapbooking days, I did this every New Year’s Eve.
I created a page or two of the year in review. I culled our favorite photos and most fun memories and put them all together in one spread. Then I journaled about each of those things.
Recently as I unloaded our scrapbooks onto the shelves of our office closet, I was reminded of the benefits of those yearly walks through Memory Lane.
Walk down Memory Lane together tonight. Print out your favorite photos of the year. Create a poster to hang on the wall or a scrapbook page to add to the family album. Or put all the photos together into a video to watch as a family. (That’s the route I’m taking tonight.)
It won’t cost a lot, but the benefits are endless.
