Memory Keeper

Use Savor’s keepsake containers to hold life's important mementos in a safe, well organized, and accessible way. Moms Karla and Jennifer consulted preservation pros (a museum curator, a rare books librarian, and an archivist) as well as professional organizers to create a system that arranges and protects everything inside. Unlike that plastic bin that houses a jumble of stuff, Savor is thoughtfully designed and meant to be seen. The sturdy cloth exterior and understated design is display-worthy, and an acid-free and lignin-free lining helps to preserve papers and photos. Drawers make it easy to drop items into the baby edition. There are even wee envelopes for baby’s first curl or tooth, as well as folders to save sonograms and footprints. The school-age edition is all file folders to corral artwork, report cards, and letters to Santa. And the wedding version has lovely stitched envelopes (for invitations, your vows, or the reception toast) and fabric bags (protect hair pins, a garter, or dried bouquet petals). Sweet, hand-illustrated labels help keep all those keepsakes straight. Many are pre-printed—which is a nice way to prompt you about what to save—while blank labels let you identify your own unique items.

    Hello Grommet! I'm Jenny, one of the two Co-Founders of Savor. As moms ourselves, we know parents have childhood treasures they want to keep, but feel guilty they don't have a system to protect or organize them. The Library is the antidote to that plastic bin at the top of the closet, to that unfilled baby book. Our thoughtful, stylish boxes make organizing mementos engaging and fun—as it should be!

    Hi Heather! Thanks for your question! We definitely have plans to make an adult keepsake box, but we had to start somewhere, and our own experiences drew us to baby/school years. I will note, however, that there are blank labels inside so you customize it however you like. (And you might find many of the school years labels are pretty flexible to be used at any point in your life, such as for performances, treasured objects, sports, awards, letters, etc.).

    hi Jennifer > FINALLY A GOOD KEEPSAKE BOX! lol I've been asking my hubby for years to make a good size, better keepsake box for parents to keep their precious little ones early years valuables & he kept putting it off. I truly love your product & will def think about purchasing. my daughters are older now, my 1st keepsakes are in a rubbermaid bin, unfortunately my 2nd's are in a large diaper box (u know what they say about the 2nd child, they get the raw end of the deal LOL) > you did a wonderful job with planning... this product Lori A :)

    Hi @Lori! The diaper box is classic! (I had 3, so you can only imagine!) If they are older, you can have them help you fill the box. I know our kids love going through their stuff and sorting it. Totally with you on the size: We felt it was important to have a box to save what matters most, but save just what matters most. Because if you save everything, they tend to look at nothing, right?

    Hi @Stacey,

    Thank you for sharing! We think that it is important to document and hold on to cherished artifacts from our lives. Travel is an important category that we have included in The School Years Edition and in our blog. We always encourage our customers to use The Library however they would like to, with the designated labels or with our blanks. And more to come soon with customizable labels on our website soon.

    Thank you,

    Hi Jennifer ~ I love your product. You might want to consider targeting the genealogy market. It's huge and genealogists are always looking for acid-free/archival storage methods. Good luck! ~ Sara

    @Sara I totally agree. That's why we thought it was important to have acid-free materials. We have plans for a "family heritage" box soon, so let Grommet know that's something you're interested in!

    Your product is beautiful. I'm excited to see that there's finally a non-frilly way to organize keepsakes. For older children (for example, ages 10 and 7), do you suggest an organizational system for the lower school years? Do the boxes hold enough "stuff" for grades K-4?

  • Jennifer
    Jennifer – Special Guest
    5/4/2016 1:47 PM

    @Haynee Thanks so much for your question! It kind of depends on what kind of a saver you are. Maybe surprisingly, our number one piece of advice is to toss most things. Save only the stuff that's really special because otherwise you don't look through any of it! I would think one school years box per child for K-4 would do you, assuming your baby stuff is separate. You can always add to your Library as you go along.

    PETS!!! I always keep little mementos from each special non-human with whom my family and I have shared our lives and have never had a worthy place to store them. Not sure if enough drawers, as pictured, are big enough for things like a larger favorite toy, but I have plenty of other smaller mementos that I've kept. Great to know you will be offering "create your own" labels, as well. Fantastic, fantastic product! Best of luck!

    @Jennifer Thank you so much!!! It's exciting to see such an enthusiastic response when you've worked on something so hard for so long! These mementos deserve a box as special as the memories they hold, don't you think? We've actually had the pets comment before, so you may be on to something!

    $80? That is an outrageous price to pay for cardboard and cloth! "Paperboard"...love the fancy word you use for cardboard.....you must be making a HUGE PROFIT on these things. Being a crafter myself, I made something similar to this 11 years ago for my DOGS. I save stuff about my DOGS who are just as important as kids are to their moms...my dogs are as important...even MORE so than a kid would be. The fabric and cardboard I used came to the whopping total of $7.69. And prices have NOT changed that much in 11 years for those things. That cost included everything...from the labels to the fabric and yes, I have drawers in mine too....but would never ever charge such a ridiculous fee of $80!

    @Sandra Hi Sandra, Thanks so much for your feedback. I'm impressed you made your own boxes! So many of us have just the ugly plastic tub as an alternative, we decided we should make something more special. It sounds like your dogs were well taken care of, and you can see others have felt a pet one would be a good idea, so it has us thinking!

    We appreciate that it's expensive, but I promise you, it's based on the cost of producing the product. We really wanted to do a less expensive $50 product, but it just wasn't possible. These boxes are double-thick, with custom-dyed book cloth, and acid-free paper, and they are built to last. They are much sturdier than most boxes you see in the stores. When we priced out the component parts--separate and apart from the hand-illustrated labels that take the chore out of organizing these items for many -- we often found those individual parts added to well more than our price.

    What a fabulous stylish way to keep treasures close at hand and organised. These would look great on the bookshelves in the nursery, or even stored away in the closet. Our parents kept keepsake files for us that we knew nothing about until they were presented to us on our 18th birthdays in large office files. A wonderful way to spend a few hours reminiscing , and even better if they could have been in such wonderful looking storage boxes as these. Good luck with these, they are fab.
