Many of us love to keep things that hold a special memory. It might be cards and letters, pictures printed or digital copies of things. Whatever it is, we love the idea of looking back on things. So how can we keep those memories alive? Here are some of the smart ways to do it.
Keeping Those Memories Safe: The Smart Ways To Do It
Use social media
One of the easiest ways that you can keep those memories and also share them with others is to use social media. It can be a great way for you to only share with the people you love by enabling your privacy settings and allow you to share with people in one go rather than worrying about sending separate messages through your phone. It is a lovely online scrapbook that can be looked back on.
Find apps to create albums
It may be that you prefer to keep things on your phone and that is understandable. Creating albums online through an app can be a great way to do this. Applications like ForKeeps is a great app to consider. Once you complete your album you could then share it with others. It is a great way to keep your pictures organized if that is what you prefer.
Create a blog
Another thing that you could consider would be a blog. This can also be a great way for you to share not only pictures and images but also memories in the written from. Typing out how you felt and also looking back on memories is a great way to keep an online scrapbook. You can also privatise a blog if you want so only certain people with a password can access it.
You might like old fashioned ways of documenting things and scrapbooks are a great way to do this. You can look at keeping old tickets, print pictures out, letters and drawings, whatever it is you can stick them in your scrapbook and have them there for you to look back on in years to come. Many people still like the creative side of this and it can be relaxing to sit down and record those things down. It is also a lovely activity to do with children.
Finally, if you want to look at keeping things safe, especially when it comes to storing things in a loft or basement then a memory box is a great way to go. Keep a box to hand and then add to it as things you want to keep. This might be adding pictures and letters, school reports or printed pictures. Even birthday or anniversary cards. Whatever you like to keep it is easier to add it to a box and then make a note of the year. You can then easily access it if you need it and also be able to organize it effectively in the future.
