Storing Children’s School Work

If you’re anything like me then you have a lot of paperwork to store. Not only your own, once your children are at school and nursery then suddenly you have more than you know what to do with.   Miss L loves to keep her old school work to  see what she’s done and how far she’s come on.

So as the exercise books and random pieces of paper started flowing home, I realised I’d better look at some ways of storing them all.  As with all children’s storage it need to be


Easily Accessible


So what I’ve come up with isn’t that innovative but it is efficient.  You can get a lot in them, and they are easy to pop on a bookshelf.  Magazine Holders!


I’ve created folders for each year of school (I might need two this year!) and then when school work comes home, I just pop it in the folder,  simple!  Miss L can access it when she wants and it’s kept safe in the meantime.

  1. Oh, that’s genius. Really, I have three kids and usually I just have large containers and just throw everything (worth saving) into them. The magazine holders keep everything organized and at hand for looking through. My youngest especially enjoys looking through work that he recently finished. Great idea and they look really nice on the shelf, too.

  2. They store just about every piece of paper in our house! They’re genuis aren’t they? We get the cheap ones from ikea and cover with pretty Cath Kidston or Laura Ashley wallpaper samples. 🙂

  3. Corinne – I’m so pleased you liked the idea and I guess you could colour code them as well for different children?

    Thrifty Mrs – Mine are the cheap Ikea ones too 🙂 I’ve just been scouring ebay for Cath Kidston Wallpaper – not found any yet though. Poop!
