What to do with all the school papers/work/art/etc?

Recommended Posts

What do you all do with old school work? Initially I thought I would keep one binder per child per school year, but with 4 kids, I'm realizing that will end up being a LOT of binders. Two of my kids aren't even school age yet and I'm already feeling like I've got a lot of "stuff." And then what? I give them the binders for a wedding present? :)


I saw one idea ~ to keep a file box (one of the plastic kinds you can carry around, with a removable lid/handle on top) with papers - one box per child for their whole schooling. That seems like it may not be enough space though??


Any advice from moms with older kiddos? Am I going to regret throwing away too many sweet copy work papers and art papers and etc etc?


Thanks in advance!

I've only got the two, but I'm not one for keeping a bunch of stuff. I've scanned some of the really cute stuff and that can be kept digitally forever. I keep a large rubbermaid bin in my upstairs closet. I put everything in there that I think I might want to save. Once a year, I go through the rubbermaid bin and purge so that I have it down to one large envelope of stuff per kid.
