Here are a few tips for Organizing Kids’ Keepsakes.
Are you accumulating a LOT of school work, art projects, or other masterpieces that your Mama heart just can’t bear to toss?
I have a big box from Ikea that sits in my hall closet. When M or G create something adorable (which is ALL the time, naturally!), I toss it in this box.
Every few months, I’ll go through the box and pull out the keepers (the ones that I’ll show them when they’re 18 years old).
I bought this plastic milk crate at Target and popped some colorful hanging file folders inside.
Each kiddo (well, minus the baby… He’s only 9 weeks old, haha) has their own crate.

Miss M is almost done with kindergarten and we just recently sat down together to decide which artwork, photographs, teacher notes, and reports to place in the folder. We also looked back on her preschool folders and had SO much fun reminiscing!
