Do you have treasures being stored in shoe boxes? What about treasures being stored in plastic-paged photo albums?

Treasures – whether they are a letter written from your husband while he was serving his country at war-time, or a photo of you as a little girl. They are all treasures.

And, one day, someone else will be enjoying your treasures. They will be as thrilled about finding the 5-year-old photo of you as you were thrilled about finding the 5-year-old photo of your mother!

In order for your treasures to still be around for your descendants, the treasures should be preserved.

This may mean spending some of your hard-earned money to purchase acid-free photo albums or boxes in which to store your photos. Or, it may mean purchasing some acid-free tissue paper in which to wrap the top of your wedding cake.

Just think of how big your great-granddaughters eyes will be when she sees the top of your wedding cake!
