Looking for a smart way to organize your child’s school papers & memories? 📚🤓

Storing keepsake papers, awards, report cards, artwork, etc. can become so overwhelming as a parent. Ideally, you’d like to keep everything, but realistically that’s probably not going to be possible… unless you make a school paper organizer!

I’d like to say that I’m an organized person, but in all honestly, I’ve always struggled with paper clutter and knowing what to do with my children’s “stuff.” For instance, I have papers stashed in my office, the kitchen, their rooms, and even the garage.

With that said, I’m working on this organizing project to get myself motivated to identify the BEST pieces to hold onto, and so far it’s working!

This easy filing system keeps only the very best memories of each school year, and stores them all together in a plastic hanging file bin for each child. This school paper organizer solution has been such a helpful idea for me, and it’s working out great for our family!

I’m sharing these FREE printable labels and cover sheets to print and organize a hanging file bin for your kids, too!

Directions

1

Fill out the hanging file cover sheets for each grade including year, teacher, school, etc., and attach a school photo for each year. Glue or tape to the front of a hanging file.

2

Attach labels for each school year to file folders. If desired, you can create multiple file folders for each year and separate in different categories such as schoolwork, artwork, awards, etc. File papers according to each grade level.

3

Label the bin with your child’s name. Feel free to use a marker, or save this blank label with a school supply border and open it in an image editor to add text. I used PicMonkey.com, an online editing tool, to add text to images. The font pictured is called Yesteryear.

I love that this school paper storage system is really easy to keep up with once you have it all set up!

Honestly, I wish I would have done this years ago when my first child started school. I love looking back at all my kids’ special writing assignments and memories, and I know that they will too in the future!
