31 Days-Memory Boxes

I'm not a scrapbooker.  I've tried doing scrapbooks a few times, but I just can't get into it.

Yet, I still want to save memories and keepsakes.  It didn't take me long to come up with Memory Boxes.  I have one and each of the kids has one.  The kids both have small boxes, but as they get older, they'll be replaced with a large box like mine. 

I use plastic see-through totes with lids for ours.  When there's a momento I want to save, I simply toss it in the appropriate box.  When a box gets full, I sit down and go through it.  Some things bring back good memories and they go right back in the box.  Other things, I've forgotten about so I end up tossing them.  I can't wait until a box starts getting full because it's so fun to go through it. 

The kids' boxes.  As you can see, Little Man's box is suffering from 2nd child syndrome.
Princess's box which includes birthday cards, her coming home outfit, and a few other momentos.
