It’s that time of year again. The time of year where I have deadlines of paperwork to turn in or I will officially be labeled worst mother ever. The time of year when piles of paperwork fill the house. The time of year when I go to Walmart at midnight since it’s the only store open and I just remembered that I don’t have the snack for tomorrow that I promised I’d bring.

School time.

I’ve been researching ways to organize the boys’ stuff better this year. I really want to catch up on their school albums. I always have good intentions.

I love the ideas of binders for the things I really can’t give up

from Real Simple

Maybe add some of these to put the work in until I file it away? I can hang them in our command central

from Better Homes and Gardens

Becky Higgins is coming out with a new school system soon. Maybe that will work?

How do you organize incoming school work?

  1. It's funny that you mentioned this in your post. I just came from Ali Edwards' blog and saw this, http://aliedwards.com/2011/08/love-these-memory-keepers.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+aliedwards+%28%7B+A+%7D%29

    For my Bostyn, I was planning on using those accordion file folders for the day to day worksheets that she brings home from preschool (so far, one a day) and file them by months. For her bigger art work, I hang them on her art wall, then I was going to put them into a 12×12 binder. After seeing the memory keepers on Ali's blog, I may have to go with that instead. I love the idea and concept.

    I would love to hear what you come up with so please continue to share with all of us.
