Organizing School Art and Paperwork

August 28, 2018

Hey friends!  This is going to be a quick little blog post for ya today!  I have been doing some cleaning/organizing and man it feels good!  It always takes me a bit to get motivated, but I’m so happy when I finally dive into it.  Now that the school year is back in full swing, the papers are rolling in on the daily.

I thought I’d share how I organize the boys’ schoolwork and art because if you are like me, it just piles up, has no sense of order and has a way of taking over my kitchen countertop.  I finally took the time to sort through it, toss the ones I didn’t feel were worthy of keeping, and organize the ones I did want to keep.

I purchased these plastic file organizer totes from Walmart (linking a similar one HERE) and designated a hanging file folder for each year.  You could use however many folders you need if one is not enough to hold all of your keepsakes.  I am able to organize the paperwork chronologically and it’s stored neatly.  For those larger art projects, I have a large tupperware container for each boy.  But, I try to stick as much as possible in these file folders because it keeps all of the papers nice and tidy.  Personally, I try to pitch as much as possible and just keep the things I think they will like to look back on.  I keep a few of the math worksheets to have something to compare to as the years progress, but I mostly keep the artwork and the save-worthy writing papers.

What do you do with your kid’s school papers?  Do you keep everything they ever wrote, or do you pitch all but the cute stuff?
