I have this natural tendency to want to keep every single piece of paper that comes home from school. In fact, for K’s three years of preschool I did just that. But the stacks of paper and projects is overwhelming. So last year I devised a new system for saving my daughters’ special Fridgeworthy papers that forces me to purge and only keep the best of the best – the file box school papers organization system.
File Box School Paper Organization
I’ll be honest, when I started this school papers organization system I wasn’t sure I would be about to stick to a single file folder for each year. (I have an entire shelf for preschool!) But I was diligent and managed to keep Kindergarten to one folder. (WHEW! That was some major purging for me.) If I can do Kindergarten, the rest should be a piece of cake.
The thing about this system is that the sooner you start, the easier it will be. I am still dreading going through K’s preschool stacks because it will break my heart to get rid of things. Keeping only the best Fridgeworthy papers as you go is much easier. (But don’t fear, even if you start late — you can do this!) I wish I started these boxes when K was a baby. Sissy started preschool this year, and her art will be much more organized than K’s ever was!
Which would you rather have?
The first step was finding the right file boxes. I looked at a lot of boxes, and ultimately decided on these clear file boxes from Staples. Deciding factors for me were that these boxes stack nicely on top of each other, the lids snap on and they are plastic to keep my babies’ papers safe! Plus they are only $15 each.
I wanted all of my file folders to be the same color, so I was excited to find 25 packs of hanging file folders in a rainbow of colors. Because shouldn’t the organized boxes be pretty too?
The final touch to my girls’ boxes was to use my Cricut to cut their name in vinyl for the outside of the box. If you don’t have a Cricut, you could use letter stickers or a printable label.

We do everything we can for them including making sure that they have all of the nutrition they need to help they minds and bodies be strong. But making sure they eat the proper servings of fruits and vegetables everyday isn’t always as easy as we hope — especially when picky eaters are involved.
