You guys- quick and easy tip for you. I know that you have SO much paper for your kids because who doesn't?? Not only preschool/school stuff but doctor's paperwork, baptism certificates, and the list goes on. While I've gotten better at feeling ok to toss random drawings, some I truly do want to keep. But our file cabinets are full and I wanted something quick and easy designated for each kid. Here's my solution:
A whopping $4 plastic crate. Yep- and I always get them at back to school time!
They are just perfect for putting the hanging files and filling with folders. We have a different fomkr for each kid and I just love them and how easily accessible they are. I used to have them stacked in the coat closet, but when we re did our pantry- I found the perfect home for them!!
Not like a miracle solution, but it's a cheap and simple way that I've found to organize all the papers and momentos we want and need to keep for each kid!!!
