We all know that when kids go to school, they come back with a lot of projects! Most of them are super cute and, honestly, I wish that I could keep them all, but that would create quite the paper stash! These School Files are our answer to our school project organization problems!
I saw an idea similar to this years ago and a couple of years ago, we started the files for ourselves. We just used the simple, filing boxes that you can get at any store that sells office supplies. We got ours from Walmart.
We got some hanging files for each kid and typed up labels for the tabs. We made enough folders for all the grades plus preschool and one folder for artwork before they attend school.
We put any projects from school that we love in it, but they have to be able to fit. That’s our only rule. If there is something too big to fit, we will take a picture of it and slip that inside the folder. We also add in anything they make at home that we want to keep. Or sweet notes to them from their siblings. That kind of stuff needs to be saved!
To store our school files, we just stack them up in the corner of one of our closets. Or they could easily fit on shelves in each kid’s room.
I love simple, easy organization projects like this!
Have a great day!
