This simple-yet-genius idea comes to us from Ashley Muir Bruhn of the wonderful blog Hither & Thither. Instead of letting her just-received holiday cards pile up on counter, she corrals them together using a simple binder ring, essentially creating a friends and family flipbook. “My son Hudson loves looking through them,” says Ashley, “and it’s a nice way for me to talk to him about loved ones whom we don’t get to see often.”

• Stack of holiday cards
• Binder ring
• Hole punch
1. Punch a hole in the corner of each card.
2. Slip the cards onto a binder ring.
3. Flip through the stack with your kiddos and share stories about your loved ones.
4. At the end of the season, add your own holiday card to the top of the stack and write the year. Then, the following year, you can continue to add to the stack and see how much everyone has grown over the year.
