    Default Need help with an idea.... (XP)

    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.

    I think that is a great idea for a page.... Maybe even do it for every year on her brithday.. then she can really see how the time changes..

    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.

    I'm just going to write them down ... I did a quick Google search of prices from the year I was born, a few of the major ones showed up - milk, gas, cars, etc ... you could try googling a specific item and year for your child and you might find it.
