What do you do with all their school papers?

 CJ must come home with 10-20 papers or projects daily. Some of them are cute, so I put them in a chest I keep for memories of him, but the rest I just throw out. I couldn't imagine trying to keep all of this stuff.

How much stuff does your kid bring home and what do you do with it all?

I have a box in each kids closet where I put all my favorites. (lol my sons box is a Johnny Walker box from the ABC store)

I also have a string hung along one wall to hang their art on with closepins, when the string is full then something has to come down, otherwise favorites would never come down. I do have one of my sons favorite 'family pictures' in a frame.

I discreetly toss the ones that aren't too original or favorites, but I've learned to sneak them in just before we take out the trash.

my oldest brings home a pack of papers every friday. I ask her which ones she wants to keep and then burn the rest (wood stove) Same with my youngest. If she brings home a bunch we go through them and burn what we don't want.

Same.. I have a folder I keep all papers that where sent home & some of her own work papers. I keep it for fun & so over summer I can remind myself what to review & build on.

We have a school scrapbook (store bought) that has a pocket for special papers. at the end of the year ill keep as much that will fit for memories.

I put it in a bin and then go through it at the end of the year and decide what to keep.

I keep the cute things, throw away the rest. Way too many papers to save them all!

Some I keep and some I don't. We have a box and at the end of the year we go through it and save what they want to keep.

Anything that is sentimental or  a special project I keep.  Everything gets ditched into the recycle bin.

 I keep everything until I get around to going through it. I really need to get better about doing that more often.

I throw away the everyday class work and homework and keep most of the projects and art work. I have a few bins of it. It's a little overboard but I can't bring myself to throwing them away lol.
