What a wonderful way to remember the small moments of life! Make a perpetual daily calendar that can be reused each year and gets better the longer you use it.

Each day you write the year and a line or two about something that happened that day like, Elizabeth took her first steps today! - or - Johnny broke his arm today falling off his bike - or - Ted got promoted today - now he is assistant manager - or - Moving into our new home!

Imagine what an amazing record this would be in 10 years!?

Or call it a blessing box where you write down each day's blessings. A gratitude box, to remind you of what you are grateful for. A scripture box, to add one scripture a day that speaks to you.

These would make great gifts this season, not only for adults but also for older kids, baby showers, retirement parties, wedding showers and more.

PLUS - if giving this as a gift, you could write something on some of the days yourself, for them to discover!

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
