The Thank You Jar

November is right around the corner which in our house means one thing...

The Thank You Jar.

It's a little tradition I stole from my favorite home DIYers, the Petersiks, from Young House Love. It debuted last year in my 20th (yup, I counted) blog post and it was quite fun. The idea is to each write something you're thankful for each day and then read the little notes after Thanksgiving. Once the Huz warmed up to the idea, it became pretty entertaining.

Here's the only problem: The Thank You Jar has a new home.

Looks like I'll have to find a new home for my ribbons. 

It's fun to start new traditions together, no? 
What traditions do you love in your family? Any that I can steal?



  1. love this idea, totally using it! if you need a nice new blue mason i know a girl who can send you one :)

  2. Love this. We are doing something similar for New Year's Eve - best wishes for 2012.

  3. Sweet- I love the thank you jar! For the past three years at Christmas, we each write down wishes & hopes for the upcoming year. We put them in two hollow ornaments that say Wish. It's so fun to open them the next year & see if our dreams came true!

  5. Agreed! I love this idea and will be implementing it immediately!

  6. I love this idea! Our only fairly special family tradition is a case of wedding wine-my father bought futures from the year I was born, and he plans to serve it for the big day!

  7. This is so adorable...I am going to try to convince my family to take on this tradition. :) P.S. I always forget you're from NJ. We should have a NJ blogger meet up soooon!!!! :)
