You'll need 365 3" x 5" lined notecards, but since the store doesn't sell packs of 365, I got a 300 pack and a 100 pack
You'll need a container like this with 3 or 4 slots. The reason we need 3 or four slotted containers is because there are twelve months and we divide them into these sections. 3 & 4 go into 12 evenly
Unwrap your notecards, you should have 35 cards extra if you bought 400 notecards.
Turn the cards over to the lined side
I'm using a thin sharpie pen to write in the cards
Start by writing Jan 1 in the top right corner of your first notecard
Continue the dates of the year with the rest of the cards OR look at the next step for an easier and faster way to do this
An easier way to do it is to write the date on the day of that card. So write the dates as you go through the year. Then, the next year, you'll already have them done.
Here is an example of a card I started in 2010. Write the year on one line, followed by a dash, the the highlight of your day summarized in one line. Continue on that card for each year of that day
When you're done with the card for that day, just put it in the back of the pile
Here is an example of finished one completed with pictures of events that happened that day. Be creative with the containers. This one's an egg carton
