Do you use binder's to organize schoolwork?

I have been debating on how to organize all the papers we will have, and it seems like the most popular method is using 1 binder per subject.  

So what subjects do you feel need binders?  Do you organize them into sections?  Do you use 1" binders?  Or would those be too small?

 i use binder or scrapbook for all the stuff i'm gona keep for the kids, and for all the other pages each child has a file and i put everything in it. and at the end of the school year i go through the files and toss what i dont want and put in the binder what im keeping.

and when the kids get older (adults) i give them the binder! packed with there best stuff and some of the funny mistakes stuff, pictures etc.

i use a binder per subject...reading/writing, math, science, social studies, sign language, state study, umm, grammar, etc..it helps alot then we also use workbooks but i leave the pages in those it gets to sloppy...then i have a binder a bigger one seperated into 2 one for isaac's papers and one for lucas' papers and a tabe for each grade..so when they are don't i put them into that binder and i'm done organizing lol

Hmm Im sure this will change.

Right now I have 1 - 1'' binder that I keep all subjects in (i know i will have to change this soon!)... and I plan on getting a  "Planner" binder so i can plan ahead & it will be in a binder, divided by days, ready for me to grab & use..

I have a memory box (ive had since I was 13 or so) I throw stuff in for myself, me & dh have a memory box, and my dd has a memory box I keep stuff in...art with handprints, bday cards, 1 bday decor peice yrly, and any other memorabilia gets thrown in there, some ends up getting put in a scrapbook in time..

I use hanging files and those plastic cubes to keep stuff in. They are great because they stack.

Im not sure what I will do yet. Hubby wants to do A Beka so from what I have seen everything is in its own book. but here is a bump

This year I'm trying one 3" binder and tabs for separating subjects.

I should buy stock in a company that makes binders! I have a 1 inch binder for me that has the weekly schedule I have made up, my guide for history odyssey, extra paper, and a folder that I stick random stuff in. DS's Math work to do is in a folder, I place his completed work into a hanging file system I have. I pull pages out of the work books/test books for math and make copies so I can reuse them with my younger kids(is it bad to admit that?) so the actual math books are stored in a 3 inch binder. I have 1 inch binders for DS's work in geography,history, phonics, and science (I also have a binder for me to store the science guide in since we are using R.E.A.L. Science odyssey right now). So far 1 inch binders are working out fine for us but since we haven't completed the year yet that could change. I highly doubt it will though. I haven't really decided how I will be handling stuff when we complete this years work but if I keep getting new binders pretty soon they would probably over take the house so at some point I will need a plan lol.
