How to store school work from year to year

Now that school is out for the summer, you are left with lots of artwork and school work.  Summer is a great time to tackle this project.

Step 1: Start by sorting through the papers to determine which ones to keep, and which ones to toss.

Step 2: Store in a plastic, air-tight container.  We opted for a 12×12 scrapbooking case.  It is large enough to hold the school-sized papers.  We can also add on each year, with the same size container.

Step 3: Label the container with your child’s name, grade and year.

For example: Joseph – Grade 2 – 2012-2013

Happy organizing!
