Cheers to memory planning, but really cheers to me organizing what I’ve accumulated over the years. I had to take a step back from my memory planner because I had way more than I thought. Talk about overwhelming! I’ll admit, I’m that person that takes everything out, tries to organize, gets frustrated, and quits. It takes time to organize or sort anything and I went from thinking I hadn’t saved enough to maybe I saved too much. A quick and easy page that I recently did was creating a spread for the movie tickets I’ve accumulated.
Memory Planner I Use
The memory planner that I use is a 2016-1017 BIG Happy Planner. I love the discbound system and that I can add and take away from it as I please. I’ve tried scrapbooks in the past, but this method is easier and more compact. This planner is dated so I use paper to cover the dates which takes no time at all.
My movie tickets I’ve kept in a bag over the years and I’m not really sure why I’ve kept them all this time. I have some that go back to 2010/2011 when I was in college. The ink stayed on some and the others not so much. I could have laminated these, but I decided to just glue them down and move on.
Aside from the movie tickets I pulled in my Paper Mate Flair felt tip pens, Dollar Tree dot stickers (to create a key) and my favorite double stick tape.
Compared to my other memory keeping spreads that I created, this was by far the quickest and easiest. With my other spread I was positioning the pictures a certain way because for one they were larger. Furthermore, I needed to leave space to write around them. Movie tickets are quire for the most part; in some cases rectangular.
