Tackle it Tuesdays

 I try not to consider myself a hoarder but when it comes to things my son does in school I loose all control! Its so hard to decide what piece of handwriting or art work to throw away and what you should save especially when its pre-k school work. All last school year I just threw everything in to a plastic file container and FILLED it! Now I would just leave it but if I did that every year for both boys it would take uo half my attic. I came up with this great idea to use accordion folders and label them with each school year and child's name. the to store the folders I will use the file container for all 13 years.....hopefully. Some day when they are grown I can look back on their memories in a somewhat organized fashion:)

You're blogging again!!! :) I toss all the boys stuff in plastic bins too, but then at the end of the year I go through it again and "slim it down". It's easier as time has passed and they have more stuff to select what to keep.

I was just going to say the same thing...so glad you are back!! I smiled when I saw you leave a somment on my blog!!

So just a thought...I saw it on Pintrest go figure...but a Mom scaned each piece of her childs artwork/handwritting/paintings what not and seriously made an awesome hard back book for every year!! Nothing falls apart...nothing ruins...it looked awesome! Now that I have a Pre K'er...I just might have to try this out!! :)

Glad you are back!! :)
