A jam jar of quotes

I recently found this wonderful idea online and thought I should share it with you as it really is something I am going to start this year.

A quick and easy New Year resolution that is inspiring, thoughtful, fun, sentimental – what more could you want?

The idea is to keep a track of all the cute and quirky things your kids say by writing them down as soon as they are said – any old piece of paper you can find will do (an old envelope, till receipt, page from your diary), just jot down the quote, who said it and where and when it was said and then and put them into a jam jar in your kitchen or on your desk. Whenever you are in need of a smile just pull out a piece of paper and your own little comedian will make your laugh again and again! Remember to keep them all and one day you can paste them into that scrapbook you’ve been planning for 6 years or present them as an booklet of wise quotes at their 21st.


If you’re anything like me you’ve been meaning to keep a notebook of these cute sayings but never know where it is or you’ve shared them on Facebook for your friends to giggle at but haven’t kept a record for your child to laugh at when they are old enough. Well this idea makes it so simple you can’t NOT do it! Good luck (and let me know the funniest one liners that make it into your jar!)
