If Family History Matters, It Should Be Organized

Organize Your Keepsakes


For several months I've focused on family history for busy people whether they are parents, grandparents, single adults. The purpose of this invitation to all, including those with full calendars, is that if your family matters, your memories should be preserved and the sooner, the better.

Some say childhood memories never fade.

Preserve Your Childhood Memories
From MyStatus360

But that's simply not true. If you don't take the time to organize the childhood memories, they'll be forgotten. With a little bit of effort, you can change that with Grow With Me  Boxes Preserve Childhood Memories.

Some people refuse to take the time to organize their life because they don't have time, but the time spent finding a place for everything pass great dividends in return.
Quote from The Organized Mom

Busy individuals benefit from organizing their daily life and creating a keepsake in the process when they make Daily Life Binders That Are Family History. These binders can be digital or hard copies. 

 The trick is to remember to:

  1. Organize in short spurts (15-minutes blocks)
  2. Work from this point forward 
  3. Incorporate the past as time permits
