I have an idea for a page in my head that I really want to do, I'm looking for help with it ... The idea is to do a "The Year you were born" page, and write down how much everything cost when my DD was born, because I always find it interesting when my mom tells me how much things cost when I was a kid ... I just need interesting ideas on WHAT to put ...ie, something better than just milk and bread ... so far I've got:
A litre of gas
An XL Double-Double at Timmie's
A movie & popcorn at the theater
A big Mac
And then I'm stumped, I'd like to put about 10 things on it ... any suggestions?
The cost of a movie ticket? or how about things that were popular that year. I.E. music/artists, the big news stories of that year. I was also thinking of doing something like this to include in my DS's 1st year book. Let me know and see how your turns out.
Current president (at that time)
Popular TV shows
Award winning movies (w/ money grossed)
Gallon of milk
Gallon of gas
Price of avg. car
I got these all from a Baby Shower book given to me....sorry if i duplicated, I just copied it all down. LOL
That is a great idea. Sounds like you got more than enough suggestions!

Did you have all the prices written down or are you finding them from somewhere? I didn't write all that info down in one of my kid's baby books and I was bummed about it, I was hoping that I could find it somewhere. Everyone else gave you quite a few good suggestions, the only thing I can add is maybe a popular toy or game that will still probably be around when she is an adult.
That is a really neat idea...gonna have to steal that one
