I save a few in a box in our closet. The kids sometimes save a few in their room. the rest go in the garbage

A few years ago, my former boss gave me a giant clothespin wall hanging.  We clip the more special projects in that and throw the rest.

I'm not a big "saver" of stuff. I don't like storing stuff, it feels too cluttery to me even if stored in an organized way. 

Our 5 kids are grown up and moved out now but when they were growing up: 

When they went to public schools for awhile, I had a manilla, cardboard style folder for each indiivdual child with their name on it and if there was an important paper I HAD to keep, I Put it in there and then put the folder inside our small paper files box with other important paperwork. When they won paper awards/certificates, etc I gave to each child to keep in scrapbooks or photo albums that they kept in their room and also took with them when they moved out. 

For more years, than not, I homeschooled them. During that time I had an armoire style cabinet that I kept their paperwork and other supplies in.

I will keep a couple of her special art work and then scan some of her work and certificates.

 When they were little, they went on the refrigerator, then in their room if they wanted to keep it. When we started cleaning, they could choose three to keep. Sometimes I would keep one, that went in their file folder in the office .

 I don't keep a lot. But what I do goes in a large book bag, one for each of them.
