Memorabilia – Sorting

Posted by lori . 5 Comments


This month, I started sorting through my memorabilia.  Memorabilia is particularly interesting (and challenging) because it comes in such a wide variety of forms.  Here are some types of memorabilia I have:

Objects – trophies, old toys, books, holiday decorations, souvenirs, coins, etc.

Greeting Cards – old cards from my family and cards I’ve received over the years.

School Items – assignments, art work, report cards, year books, projects, diplomas, graduation tassels.

Career Items – awards, uniforms, company logo items.

Letters – family letter and personal letters.

Misc. Paper Ephemera – concert tickets, programs.

Clothing – family items, wedding, baby, childhood, costumes.


And I’m not even through everything!  It must be done though, so onward.

    Hey Lori,

    Sorry I havent been by much, just been trying to deal with losing Fred 🙁 we are slowly trying to make it back around.
    One thing I do with all the cards I get is I teat them apart punch a hole up in the top left corner of the cards and I put them on one of those key rings that opens and closes and then I can go back and look at them any time – I have rings for xmas cards, wedding cards etc – its a fun way to keep them oraganzied and an easy way to look back at them.

  • Love Kari’s idea! I have SO many cards and letters as well as random concert/movie/plane tickets and random postcards

    I have so much memorabilia, and I’m dying to see all the cute stuff you do with it!

  • Don’t know how I missed this. That card is much prettier than mine! Looking at your list makes me laugh. I think I have enough junk to post for a month. And is that a hanky I see? I found a few of my nanny’s yesterday. Argh!
