  • For the mountains of crafts that kids create that are SO hard to get rid of b/c they are so cute, here's what I do: I use them for gifts for grandma's and grandpa's and aunts and uncles for Christmas or birthdays. You can put clear contact paper over the top to protect it and make place mats, and calendars, you can also frame them and hang them on the kids bedroom walls. Poster frames are large and work great to make a collage of them!

  • Buy a shelf and some folders. Separate your papers into the folders. Every time you start to accumulate a pile, distribute the papers into your folders accordingly. Goodluck! ;)

  • how about getting a tote for all your kids stuff.

  • You could also take pictures of your kids crafts and do a scrap book of them.
