Your Life in Lists

by jessicaturner on March 5, 2010

I am always looking for different ways to tell stories – beyond scrapbooking. When looking back at my life, my earliest scrapbooks were these school books that my Mom would have my sister and fill out every year. I treasure that little book. It is a time capsule from my childhood. This is the one from high school.

When Matthew and I were dating we filled out half of All About Us. It is already so fun to look back on – and that was just six years ago – imagine how cool it will be in 25 years.

Over Christmas, I found the next book to help tell my story. Matthew and I were browsing at Barnes and Noble, when I found a book I immediately loved: Listography Journal: Your Life in Lists.

That day, I decided to buy a few other books, but I saved it to my Amazon Remembers (I love the Amazon app on my iphone).

This week I got it and I am so excited to start it.

Essentially, each spread is for a list like:

  • List your favorite records
  • List what you like to do on your day off
  • List your biggest fears
  • List people you’ve lived with
  • List your favorite toys you played with as a child

I think this will be a great thing to take on trips and work on while I am watching television. I plan on dating my entries so that I can go back and add to the lists in the future.

It turns out there are a whole bunch of these Listography books including:

Have you ever filled out a book like Listography before? Are there any you have that you would recommend?

Update: For those of you that asked, yes they totally still make school memory books. Here are a few I found on Amazon.
