Create a Keepsakes folder

<p>A random baby sonogram, an audio recording of my infant daughter singing a song, a PDF of my wife&rsquo;s family tree, a scanned letter my grandma hand wrote me... These are all various digital snippets that sunk into the various corners of my Mac.&nbsp;</p>

If these items were tangible, I'd probably keep them in a shoebox under my bed, ready to be pulled out on a rainy day. I certainly can’t classify these files as standard documents, so I have a hard time finding a place for them in my productive folder scheme or even within Evernote. These digital memories serve as reminders of life’s delicate moments, and so I’ve decided to store them in a Dropbox folder simply called Keepsakes, easily accessible for when motivation runs dry or I just need a little lift.
