Yearbook Page Ideas: What did it Cost?

Do your elders often utter lines like “I remember when [insert item] only cost [insert ridiculously cheap price]” and “…never cost that in my day” now and again? Yep, mine too and with this week’s yearbook page idea, you’ll qualify to quote similar reminiscent lines to your own future family.

A ‘What did it Cost?’ yearbook page will help you remember prices of your favourite stuff for years to come.

A ‘What did it Cost?’ yearbook page doesn’t need to be fancy or complicated, even just a nicely formatted list of the item with current price would do the job just fine. For something a little fancier and more typographic, this page content works really well as an infographic.

If you’re more of a pictures over words fan- take photos of the items and put price tags on them.
