Memory Bank

memory bank

This year on January 1st, I started this thing.  Instead of banking savings (okay, I never actually did that!), I’ve begun banking memories.    It’s an effort to focus more on emotional value than financial value, or in other words, on the stuff that really matters.  True riches. 

The idea is that you fill a piggy bank (I’m just using a big jar) with little notes of jotted down memories as they happen.  Then as the year draws to an end, you empty it and read and remember and toast to how much richer you’ve become!

I'm doing this also! It's going to be so fun to break it open at the end of the year :-)

this is a fabulous idea. i think i will have my daughter do this. teens have a tendency of being very unappreciative, lol!! it would be nice for her to look back at how "rich" she actually is!
