Sorry to be a downer, but your ability to recall will deteriorate with every passing year.
Imagine how awesome it would be to sit down with your love in a quarter of a century and reminisce over a box of mementos you saved from every single meaningful date.
It takes very little effort (or cash) to make this happen, so start snatching up the following on future dates:
➽ “To Go” menus
➽ Business cards
➽ Wine corks (to be used later to make a bulletin board or trivet)
➽ Cardboard coasters
➽ Movie stubs or theater program
➽ Sand or shells (from your beach date)
➽ Flowers or leaves (purchased or from nearby vegetation)
➽ Whatever you can snag without getting a smack on the wrist (or worse)
Jot down a little note on every memento (with a permanent pen) and put it in “The Date Box.” If you don’t already have a box, you can pick one up at Michaels, The Container Store, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Target, etc.
