I want to do this on my honeymoon: make a postcard memory book... while on your trip, send yourself a postcard every day from where ever you are...then bind them when you return to have a journal of your trip -- complete with photos, stamps, and a run-down of each day's events! I want to do this!! My Grandmother and her mom used to collect post cards. :)

This is a new tip which I only recently discovered but it is by far one of my favourites and I am definitely going to be doing it when we travel to Asia at Christmas time. In order to remember what we did on holidays I write a travel journal. I love writing my journal, I put lots of information in it like where we went, where and what we ate, how much things were etc and I find it to be an invaluable tool when I travel to that place again, when I am sorting photos and recording memories here on the blog. It's also nice to read and remember. Next time I go away I will still write my journal but I am going to send myself (or our family) a postcard each day. It's pretty easy to do and completely affordable, after all postcards are really inexpensive and so are the stamps for them. Then when you get home and collect the mail you will be able to relive what you did and bind them into a book (like a mini album) to display and look at for years to come. (Photo source: Pinterest) Some days I will get the kids to write on the postcard or let them send one each. There are no rules here, you adapt it to suit you. Every postcard will have the following information on it: * the date (so we can bind them in the correct order) * the weather (I just use a small symbol and the temperature) * where we were and something we did there * a stamp from our destination which is interesting in itself Pretty basic stuff but the stuff that good memories are made of. (I have no idea how I am going to bind my postcards at this point, but I have some time to think about it, I love the binding on the ones above) Next time you go somewhere - send yourself some postcards!

When you go traveling, it's always fun to save memorabilia and photos from your journey to remind yourself of the memories. But then your home becomes cluttered, the memorabilia gets dusty, or the photos never make it off your digital camera or computer. Here are five creative ways to attractively compile, preserve, and display your travel memories. Memory Jars If you like to collect things from your travels (souvenirs, ticket stubs, trinkets, etc.) and love having them out on display, memory jars are a great way to keep them organized and tidy. Martha Stewart has some great tips on how to create your own memory jars. Shadow Boxes Shadow boxes are like memory jars, but you can hang them on a wall instead of lined up on a shelf. Read this terrific blog post from The Travel Tester on how she created travel souvenir shadow boxes. Gallery Wall The gallery wall is another way to display your travel memories on the walls of your home, but they focus more on photos, images, and two-dimensional souvenirs (e.g. ticket stubs, maps, coins) while the shadow box is better for a collection three-dimensional items. Postcard Journal This is a great idea to use while you're still on vacation! Each day, write yourself a postcard detailing the day's activities and send it home. Then when you return from your travels, bind it all together into a little book. The bonus of postcards is you'll see the date and postmark, making it more fun than a traditional journal. If you need advice on binding your postcard journal, check out this great blog for tips and ideas. Map with Pins (This one is great for kids!) If you have kids and want to help them preserve their travel memories, think about putting up a big map and adding pins to the places they've been to. Road trips could even be traced with yarn tied to the pins. Here are four more ideas on helping kids preserve their travel memories. What is your favorite way to preserve your travel memories?
