Some of us get overwhelmed by the amount of papers our kids bring home from school, especially when that first child enters school. You do NOT need to keep every piece of paper that comes home from school in perpetuity. Make rules for yourself on what you will save. Here are some examples:
1) Information - the school menu and newsletter, class roster - Keep for just as long as it is relevant, then toss it.
2) Awards - those special recognitions
3) Papers - things that are sentimental like Mother’s Day card and papers that truly show your child’s personality
Make up your own rules. Keep a finite amount of papers. Go through the papers occasionally; you’ll be surprised what you can weed out after time has passed.
