Journal 10+ ~ The unique 10+ year journal/record keeper ~ Review

Posted by Jenna | Thursday, February 16, 2012




Six years ago this month, my Grandfather passed away. We spent much of February cleaning out his house and going through his things. Looking through photo albums, finding family heirlooms, items he had collected over the years, etc...was really fun and brought back so many great memories of the times we were able to spend with him. One of the neatest things we found, was a box full of old journals/planners.
Each year, my Grandpa would get a new planner. He would journal in it each day by jotting down the things he did, the way he was feeling, etc. It was neat to go back 10+ years and read the through his thoughts as well as his day to day life. It was fun reading his thoughts on things he did, for instance...when he attended my wedding, family Christmas', and more.

My family is fortunate to have these journals...they're something we like to look through and will pass down from generation to generation. I now see the importance of keeping a journal, even if it's a short note each day. It's something future generations will appreciate. I would love to do something like this, but didn't want the hassle of having so many journals lying around as the years past. That's why I was extremely excited when I learned about the Journal 10+ and that I was going to have the opportunity to review one!

This product is a 10 year Journal, dated each day for the next ten years! As you can imagine, it's something that has been very popular amongst parents, grandparents, and pretty much anyone interested in recording the details of their lives. I for one think it's fun to jot down the details of my day, as I think it's something my kids will really enjoy reading one day.

When the Journal 10+ arrived, I was impressed with the quality right away. The cover is a leather type material...something that is durable and will last through the wear and tear of daily use. I love how it has such a timeless look...it will definitely make a terrific keepsake!

I love that each day has a small space to jot down the thoughts of the day. It's enough space to write down what I did or how I was feeling without feeling overwhelmed with having to fill an entire blank page. And, on days when I want to write more, there are nice "carry-over" pages in the back of the journal. It takes 5 minutes or less each day, which makes it ideal for busy parents!

As I make each entry, I'm able to see what has been happening from day to day. It will be fun to look back on in years to come. Re-reading triggers memories of people, places and events...those that would otherwise be forgotten.

I've been thrilled to have such a neat journal to write in. This record keeper is like a time capsule and something I want to continue to do over the coming years. The quality is fantastic, and the fact that I can write short thoughts and happenings in just minutes a day is great! It really adds up to being such a neat piece...almost like a time capsule that my children and future generations can enjoy reading through. There are even neat bonus sections (like goals, contacts, etc). I would definitely recommend this to parents, grandparents, etc.
Buy It: You can purchase the Journal 10+ for $29.95 for a 2011-2021 edition or $39.95 for a 2012-2022 edition.
