Suze Orman, a financial TV personality, says to take all of the items you haven't used in a while and put them in the middle of your living room to either sell them or give them away.
This would be an online photo/memory album.
1. Collect your items
We all have those boxes and objects we've had forever that hold some type of memory to us. The idea is to collect these items we probably won't ever use again to be documented and sold.
2. Take Photos
Or someone technically savvy can take them for you. These photos will be used for you as well as to add to an online store like Etsy or Ebay.
3. Write your memories & description
These memories will last a lifetime. If the event happened years ago, or the experience just happened, you'd be able to document your memory and have it forever. Having a cool story can be a good selling point as well.
4. View memories online or print as a "memory book"
You can view these memories online through the website or print it off like a Shutterfly photo book.
5. Fees from selling would fuel the website
Just like Ebay or Etsy works, the fees and percentages would be taken from the sales in order to fund or keep the website going.
My mom always tells me to take a picture of my things to have forever, but if there was a format online for me to organize and document my memories, it would be a lot easier process and a more put together collection of moments in my life. In the same way, the younger generation has this passion for vintage and antique items that the older generation has. This way you can keep your memories but sell your items to create new memories and new experiences.
