I wanted my memory box to be not just a bunch of random stuff from my whole life, but a collection of things I've accumulated this year as well as future years to come.
As far as the box goes - I got three of the A3 boxes - black, blue and grey - that are available at Officeworks for $30 each. Kikki.K also has them for the same price so just go wherever is closest or easiest for you. The box size is perfect for me - if it were any bigger it would be hard to store and if it were smaller it wouldn't fit everything and I wouldn't have room for it to grow.
I think I'm going to put together a box for my childhood and a box for my school years with the two spare ones I have but my priority this month was this memory box.
|My Current Memory Box|
- My uni graduation documents
- 21st Birthday Cards
- The watch mum gave me for my 21st
- My journal (March -> September 2013)
- Incomplete Kikki.K 365 journal
- Kikki.K Instagram prints
- Photos from days with my friends and the One Direction concert I went to in October
- An envelope containing concert and movie tickets as well as passes to things - I'm going to do something else with these, maybe a ticket album...
I searched a couple of places to figure out where I should get my prints from and ended up deciding on Kikki.K. I wrote my own captions on the prints - although they aren't the best quality, they did handle the pen really well which is something my prints from Printstagram don't do.

|I must have seemed like a self-absorbed person to get all pictures of myself printed....|
All of our photos are currently stored in boxes like this one - I'm going to slowly make my way through all of them and sort us out!
I absolutely love the way my memory box has turned out and I'm going to continue them into the future. Let me know what your memory keeping tips are - I'd love to hear them!
Also I'm going to visit my cousins in another state this month so I won't be online until next Thursday but I'll be back then with a full report on my trip!
