DIY Memory Jar

DIY Memory Jar

While Facebook and Instagram are great for documenting memories, sometimes you just need a fun way to preserve those funny quotes, embarrassing moments, or general shenanigans that always seem to happen when you’re with your friends! This year, my roommates and I decided to create a memory jar. At the end of the year, we’ll sit down and take turns reading our memories out loud. It will be a great way to remember all the great times we had together!

To make your own memory jar, all you’ll need is a pad of sticky notes (bonus if they’re fun colors!), a Sharpie/pen/writing utensil of your choice, and an empty jar/cup/mug. Whenever something memorable happens, write it down & fold it up. At the end of the year (or any date, really), sit everyone down and open them all up. Be prepared for some ab-crunching laughter and probably some (happy) tears as you remember all the crazy stuff of the past!

Another great idea is to keep the memory jar and a pad of sticky notes near a door in your room. That way, anyone who comes in can write a funny memory or even just a positive note. At the end of the year, you’ll have a great mix of memories!
