      Memory Jar...such a good idea for 2014: Every few days, jot down something that made you laugh or smile. On New Year’s Eve, empty out the jar, unfolding each paper and reading them one by one.

      Memory Jars... what a great way to start the New Year! Take a jar and use it all year round to hold family memories. The idea is to drop things in the jar all year long - movie tickets, notes, report cards, etc. At the end At the end of the year, say on New Year’s Eve, you open the jar and reminisce. | Daily Dish with Foodie Friends Friday

      Memory jar - keep a jar and some paper handy and family members can write down things that made them laugh or just a sweet memory throughout the year. Take them out and read them New Years Eve. Fun idea. Then u could keep the jars over the years and go back and read them years later.

      A family memory jar: Memories, the creating and sharing of them, are the glue that holds a family together. Treasuring the moments you spend together is one of the most important things you can do. Make a memory jar by writing key moments down on notepaper and adding them to the jar. At our place, we read back over the notes on new year’s eve, remember the year that was and planning the year ahead. A lovely tradition that gives meaning to new year’s in a family kinda way.

    We started this almost a year ago and can't believe how much we have already saved, haven't decided on what the savings will go towards, maybe baby's college fund or a fun family vacation I heard one lady did this...never spent a $5.00 bill but saved it instead. It two years she had nearly $12,000! Need to start this today!

    Do everything without whining, complaining or arguing. Every one has their own jar. Start off the week with a set amount of quarters in each jar. If they are caught whining or complaining, they lose a quarter. At the end of the week, they get the money that remains. Must start NOW!!!:)
