K-12 Memory Boxes

Thanks to Pinterest, I have once again created an awesome organizational tool! As we prepare to embark on our newest journey of our first born entering Kindergarten, I was having some anxiety about making sure important things he does in school don't get lost in the shuffle of everyday mail and junk mail that makes its way through the house.

I first came across iheartorganizing's post on Pinterest with these super cool file boxes and just HAD to make them. I also used these cute tab printables from SissyPrint for my folders!

These were so easy to put together. I even made my daughter one and she's only 3 1/2! Its all ready to go for her when she starts school :-)

1) Find yourself some bins that have the slot inside to hold hanging file folders. I found mine at Office Depot:

2) Create your file folder tabs using the this linky to download the template from SissyPrint (they are customizable, so once you download them, you can add your own text.  


3) Click here:  iheartorganizing and in her post about her bins, she has a link where you can download her copy of what she calls the School Paperwork Coversheet. I printed 13 copies; one for K-12th grade and glued one to the inside of each of my folders. There is a space on the sheet where you can put each school year's photo, the school year date, teacher's name, and school name!


Now I have to clear a space in my closet to store these and add to them as the years come and go :-) These boxes ended up being way bigger than I planned, so I pan on adding one of those durable shoe boxes to put arts/crafts that can't be "filed" and other mementoes or pictures.
