I notice every year that this idea is pinned a lot and I am so glad I did it last year. I just took a basic jar, cut a piece of glitter paper, wrote 2013 in permanent marker and taped it to the jar. I then took a bunch of colored paper and cut them and put them in a baggie next to the jar. Throughout the year my husband I wrote down funny, cute & lovey things we wanted to remember.
The only thing that differs from the pin that I saw is that my husband and I read them on January 1st and we also put them in a scrapbook that we will add each year until the book is full.
This is something I know we will write even more things this year than we did the last, because it is so cute to remember things that would otherwise be forgotten.

I got everything at Hobby Lobby at 50%. I didn't go at the same time, but they rotate their sales frequently.
