How I save school work

School work is something that just collected in one bag or the other for years. This school year I was determined to do something with it all. So the first thing I did to get this all organized was go threw it all and decided what was worth keeping. I kept things like progress reports, first day items, any awards, and some things my daughter has had trouble with learning. (I keep that in case she needs to look over it again in the future.) Anything else went into recycling. 
This is step will be a lot easier when you dont have piles to go threw and only have to go threw what your child brings home. Then I hole punched anything that could go in a binder and anything that couldn't went into the front or back pocket. This has made keeping personal papers for future use so much easier and my daughter enjoys looking threw the things she has made and done now. :)

Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
