Back in March, before I started using Pinterest, I saved to my Evernote notebook a post from the blog Eighteen25. They created this cute box to store a printout of the kid's interests/favorites/dreams every year (both of the following images are theirs).
This is a great idea to do on birthdays or the start of each new year. I really like the idea of a tracking the current interests of kids and even adults. Though I think the box is cute and a great idea for a many families, a digital file would work better for our family.
I'm constantly trying to purge our belongings so that we actually know where things are and remember that we have things! So, for us, we'll be using the printable below, scanning it back into the computer, and then including it in our photo books that I do through Shutterfly. We have a big collection of Shutterfly books; I like how it keeps all of our memories accessible without the bulk.

For the adults, I recommend taking a look at the list that Simple Mom's Tsh came up with. The last page of her PDF is formatted so that you can print it out and cut out little cards.
This morning, I noticed that 30 Handmade Days also did a New Year's printable. Go check hers out, too! The image below is hers.
Happy New Year!
