This wonderful video taken from the “Happiness Project,” explains how you can preserve wonderful memories from your life and store them inside of file boxes.
How Do You Store Tangible Items That Bring Back Wonderful Memories?
I have always struggled with finding a good way to store tangible memories. After all, photo albums store pictures, DVDs store videos, but how do you effectively store all of those other tangible items that bring back wonderful memories. Things like……..
- The crayon colored birthday card your child made you when he was 6?
- The loving sentiments from the anniversary cards you get from your husband.
- Your 3 year old I LOVE YOU picture she drew with crayons.
- Cards that your mom and dad have sent you throughout the years.
- The newspaper articles that were written up about your child’s sports success.
All of these amazing memories can be neatly organized and stored so you can easily look back on it into the future in the same file boxes that you bought for moving.
The video mentions that one way to feel happier every day is to reflect back on happy moments in your life! What a wonderful way to do this.
Buy File Boxes For Moving and Then Save Them To Store Your Memories
Many of you have home offices and buy file boxes to transport your files in. These boxes are strong and sturdy and can be easily saved and re-used for any number of purposes.
We always suggest that you keep these sturdy, strong boxes to store old tax files in your garage as an example.
However, now you can also keep file boxes to store all of the wonderful memories that happen in your life.
Use File Boxes To Store Your Kid’s Arts and Crafts Projects
It pains me to throw out all of the kids arts and crafts.
Of course you can not keep it all, but wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a box each year of crafts that your child made when he or she was 3? Wouldn’t it be fun if you could look back and see what YOU made when you were 5?
So instead of recycling file boxes, use them to store your kids arts and crafts as they are getting older.
Store Sentimental Cards That Your Family Gives You In File Boxes
Wouldn’t it be WONDERFUL to have kept every card that you mom or dad has given you in your life. All the I LOVE YOUs, the warm thoughts and caring feelings to save them in a file box for retrieval of memories?
Can you imagine being able to look back on every card that your kids gave to you?
By reusing your file boxes after you move, this is EASY TO DO!
