What I have started to do is this...
I have a 3 drawer sterilite bin that I have gotten form Wally World (lord I hate that place) and because I have 3 kids, each one gets their own drawer.
Creative I know, but hang in here with me.
It is in the basement out of the way but I routinely add their stories and homework to it. I then try and separate them into school years and clamp them with the big monster clips, I don't know what they are called so monster clips is what I am calling them.
I will also save artwork.
These are a stack of homemade cards that the kids have given me through the years.
Sophia is big into writing so I have a ton of her stories that she has written and I just could not get rid of them.
I put them in a nice neat stack and used card stock and stickers to make a front and back.

I have them laminate the top paper and the back paper and have it spiral bound. Not too expensive either at about $4.00 dollars a book. Pretty cool huh?
For this one I took one of Sophia's watercolor art project and cut it in half and used that for the front and back of the book.
This is from Sam when he was in Kindergarten. Inside is a collection of writings and art work that he did the whole year.
These are all the cards that the kids have made through the years.
I love that they are all in one place, neat and tidy.
