Get more bang for your buck when preserving your memories with our best buys in scrapbook supplies.

If you've ever bought a scrapbooking gizmo that now sits on the shelf because you never need it or it's too hard to use, this list is for you. We searched high and low for the scrapbooking products that offer the most value in terms of usefulness, quality and price. Look for these memory-album supplies at your local scrapbooking store, craft stores or on the Web. And shop around — we give the suggested retail prices, but you can often find these products for even less!

Album: Life and Times albums are made of the best acid — and lignin-free materials available for protecting your photos. The covers are padded and covered in acrylic-impregnated book cloth (no insect-attracting starches or acidic leather) and sized so pages don't protrude from the closed album. Matching slipcases are available. A multi-ring system securely holds 35 pages (that's 70 front and back). At $40 for a 12×13-inch album, you probably won't buy one per grandkid per year, but they're wonderful for heritage and special occasion scrapbooks. <www.lifeandtimes.com>, (800) 852-8873
