From the article:
Each and every day when my little ones hop off of the bus and come running in through the front door, they take off all their gear and give their mama some major hugs! That’s my favorite part. And then they take out piles and piles of paperwork. Piles. And more piles. It’s like crazy amounts of papers each and every day.
Tackling these piles can quickly get overwhelming, since it seems never ending. And if they don’t get dealt with, the piles can create mass chaos…. I know, I have been there!
We typically go through all of their work, and file all the necessities in their personal bins.
This is always our “go to” place for all things related to the kid’s schooling and activities. However, to ensure the bin doesn’t overflow with all the papers I can’t part with, I had created this binder system to house all my favs.
I tend to hold on to all their important tests, report cards, paperwork showing milestones being made, etc… and it ended up being more than I originally planned for. And that’s ok. It is always one of my favorite ways to go down memory lane with the little ones… they really get a kick out of looking at their older papers as well. So instead of pairing down even more, which tends to be my first reaction, I decided I needed a new storage approach. One that will be manageable as they continue to learn and grow, yet is easy to maintain.
So I snagged three file boxes. You can get them anywhere, office supply stores, Target and Walmart, Amazon… They come in so many shapes and sizes and colors!
I just pop the cover on and stow away on a nearby shelf. Making this a really easy system to maintain. Oh imagine the giddiness!!
School paperwork is always a hot topic that I have gotten oodles of emails about, so if there are any other storage ideas or solutions that are working well for you, we would all heart to know!
