Here's What You Should Do Instead Of Making New Year's Resolutions

It's called a "rememberlutions" jar and it'll make you feel good all year.

Tired of making New Year's resolutions you never keep? Do something different this year and make "rememberlutions!"

New Year's resolutions can be energizing and motivating, but they can also lead you to beat yourself up; focusing on the previous year's failures to figure out where to do better next year is no way to live. And when you don't keep your resolutions (yet again), you can feel completely defeated.

So instead of focusing on shortcomings, prepare to celebrate each awesome thing that happens next year.


Make a jar now that you can fill with memories and accomplishments over the course of the next 12 months.

You can review and remember when the ball drops at the end of 2015!

And a plethora of craft supplies.

We used googly eyes, yarn, stickers, paint pens, and copious amounts of glitter. We found that a glue gun was the best way to make all of the trinkets stick to glass, but glass/metal glue worked as well (it's about $7 at any craft store).

Let your materials ~speak~ to you.

Remember, this is going to be in your line of sight for the next 12 months. The heart wants what the heart wants, and sometimes what the heart wants is chartreuse fringe.
