I’m big on memory keeping. I try to save a bit of the little every day memories right along with the big events too. I have several favorite ways to do this. These are my favorites for 2015.
Penzu – I have the Penzu app on my phone so I can hop on there and jot down thoughts as I have them. This is so helpful because my mind is constantly racing. I find keeping a large paper journal just too much work right now. I never remember to pull it out before bed so it never gets written in. But I always have my phone and it’s as quick as typing up a couple sentences.
Guided Journals – Earlier this month I talked about my Top 5 Favorite Guided Journals. I don’t sweat it if I don’t get to write in these on a daily basis. Sometimes I’ll pull them all out on a Sunday and fill in one line for each day. It’s easy to remember the main events from the week and quickly jot them down all at once.
Project Life – I am still a big fan of digital Project Life and it’s easy to fill template. I just drop in my photos and a few cute filler cards, add a small bit of text if I have anything to say and I’m on my way. Project Life is my main method for recording our family life each year.
Chatbooks – ChatBooks allows you to turn all your Instagram photos into a photo-book with just a couple clicks. (I’d love to connect with you on Instagram.) I create custom hashtags for categories in my life like #lynnetravels2015. Then I pull up all the photos under that hashtag, upload them to chatbooks and order my book. So easy and fun!
What’s your favorite way to record your memories?
