The Best Way to Organize School Papers

Whether they’ll be in school physically this year or not, odds are you’ll have some school papers, artwork, achievements, and other memorabilia you’d like to save for them to commemorate this time.

But how do you do that in an organized, orderly fashion without leaving piles of school papers all over the place? Make a memory box!

To make a memory box for storing school papers, all you need is a large filing box and file folders.

Consider what’s worth keeping and what you can recycle. Hanging on to too much is never a good idea. Create rules for yourself and stick to them.
