Part of getting my house summer ready involves going through all the school stuff and either trashing it or saving it. For years I had no way to really store my kids stuff. A few years ago I saw some clear hanging file folder boxes on sale at Costco and I knew I had found my answer!
Each one of my kids has their own box with their name on it. Inside are hanging folders for each grade. Early Years, Preschool - 12th Grade. All papers and projects from the year go into the folder. School pictures, report cards, my favorite artwork or homework. There is also enough room that I also can keep things like their baby book, and other items too.
I scan all these items for scrapbooking purposes and then store them in their boxes. I try to do this each month. It is amazing how things don't pile up anymore when you have a place to put it!
