Save Your Memories with PeggyBank

With the holidays fast approaching, we will all have that one person on our shopping list who is hard to buy for because they seem to have practically everything. But this year, I guarantee that you'll be able to give them a unique gift that they'll always be able to cherish with PeggyBank.PeggyBank was founded in 2010 by Jim Simon but the roots stretch a lot further back. Jim got the idea to start PeggyBank when he attempted to transfer all the photos, slides, audio recordings, and home movies that he had collected over the decades to digital. It wasn't an easy task for Jim because as you know technology changes rapidly and he had media in dozens of older formats that our modern devices were unable to read. Jim realized that he wasn't the only one with this predicament and that there were probably millions of other people out there just like him who would love to get their cherished memories out of dusty old boxes relive and save their memories with their loved ones in modern digital format.

Using PeggyBank is as easy as 1, 2, 3. 
  1. Send: You simply send in your photos, home movies, etc. to PeggyBank using your own box or you can order a PeggyBox Kit for $19.99. This includes a special crush proof box, shock resistant padding, two anti-static and waterproof bags, and a roll of packing tape. This also includes free FedEx shipping.
  2. Save: PeggyBank will take care of the rest and save your memories by professionally converting all your medial to digital files and upload them to your free unlimited online personal PeggyBank Vault, preserving your memories forever. When they are done, all your material will be returned to you in its original form. 
  3. Share: Your private PeggyBank Vault makes it easy for you to view, organize, and share your memories anytime with your loved ones on Facebook, Pinteret,YouTube, and Email. You can also have your media saved to a flash drive, hard drive, or copied to a DVD for an extra fee. 

I remember as a kid we couldn't afford a camcorder so we'd record things on cassette tapes and since my grandma died right before I turned 3 I can't remember her so this is the only way I ever got to hear her voice. My parents would record things such as us opening our presents at Christmas, which might sound lame to some of you but for us it was the only way to do things and this was the next best thing to having an actual video. We'd record other things on cassette tapes too such as my brother singing when he was a little boy and me just being silly. My parents could however afford a camera so they took tons of pictures, especially during the holidays when everyone was together. Sadly however, my parents had a house fire in 2009 and lost many of these precious memories. PeggyBank would have kept these memories alive.

  14. Their pricing is pretty reasonable...though I imagine $12/VHS would still add up fast!
