Where to put papers from school

Not sure where to keep all of the papers that come home from school?  Consider setting up a temporary bin.

When the kids come home, get into the habit of emptying their backpacks.

1.  Keep Homework on the table.
2.  Take a look at your child’s finished work.  If you need to save it, just place it in the bin.
Our bin is 12 x 12, and about 6 inches deep.  When the bin fills up, we sort through it by:
– Tossing papers that we don’t need
– Saving the best ones for our scrapbook.

3.  We also keep a bright-colored folder in the bin.  Use this to keep special papers like: school lunch menu, Scholastic book flyers, upcoming school events etc.

Happy organizing!
