The vacation might be over but the memories will last a lifetime.

1.Post Card Book.

Wherever you go for the day, buy a post card and mail it to yourself.  After you get home combine them into a book. Whether you are going on a multi-city trip or staying in the same location this is a great way to preserve your memories.

2.Shadow Box.

It is so simple to save to all of your plane, train, and museum tickets, but what do you do with them when you get home? Not all of us are born to be scrap-bookers, so buy a shadowbox and slip the tickets through the top. An effortless and artsy way to remember where you’ve been. It's also a handy place to keep your passport in between getaways!

3.Vacation Jar.

Especially great if you go to the beach! Bring home some sand, a few seashells, rocks, a picture, and anything small from a tourist shop. Put them in the jar and display it on your coffee table! Don’t forget to mark it with a tag or label with the year and vacation spot.

4.Keep a Blog.

Simple and cheap, all you need is a computer or phone! At the end of every day journal your activities, your thoughts, good experiences, bad experiences, photos, and anything else you don’t want to forget. Invite friends and family members to view your blog each day. They will love reading it and the pressure of an audience will help motivate you to write every day. After you return home, you can print it out and put it into a scrapbook! 

5.Scratch-Off Map.

A classic way to remember (and show off!) where you have been.
