Hardcover albums are still a thing and they are truly one of the best ways you can record your memories and cherish them forever.

The best thing about making an album is that you can arrange it to tell the whole story. It takes a bit of time, but it’s worth the effort.

But if you are looking for a small and cute way of preserving your memories, go with mini albums. Because they are smaller scale it doesn’t seem so overwhelming as creating a big one.

Make home videos
No matter if it’s a family tradition, just a normal day, a holiday, or a vacation, recording some of the moments is the coolest way to make sure it stays documented. But don’t worry about capturing every single moment, you can’t live your life looking through a lens. Capturing just a few minutes is good enough to provide a memory while you are still enjoying time with your family and creating new memories. Videos are easily transferred onto computers, DVD’s, clouds, and all other things where you can share your videos.
The whole beauty of keeping mementos is that they can be just about anything. Keeping a little box of things that you have collected over the years will serve as treasurer for other people you want to share it with. Every time you go tough it will let you remember all the fun stories behind every piece. The things don’t have to be anything large or valuable, it needs to be something that will remind you of that special time.
Keeping your memories recorded in whichever way you prefer will help you look back and remember what life used to be back then. You might also find that the whole experience is hepatitis as you are looking at happy times spent with people you love. It can also give your loved ones something to remember all the events if they suffer from memory loss or future generations to see how life was back in your days.
