{back 2 basics} somewhat simple

I am thrilled that Stephanie is here today--she was one of the first blogs that I read, and LOVED. She knows how to make everything look so darling!  


Hi, I'm Stephanie, from Somewhat Simple!

School is starting soon, and that means all those cute papers, projects and awards you little ones bring home will need a place to stay without getting crumpled or spilled on by tomorrows bowl of cereal!

Up until yesterday, all of Ethan' s stuff was at least stashed in an expanding file folder, but then I saw Becca's idea, and I was sold!

I made one box for each of my kids- each box has a file folder for each grade. These boxes are durable and can stack on top of each other or fit nicely in a corner on the top shelf in a closet to save space.

And they are super cute-



So am I! Anything with ribbon is automatically cuter. :) This idea is an easy, darling, organized way to keep track of all those school papers---love it!


Thank you so much, Stephanie! Make sure you stop by Somewhat Simple, and check out all her other great ideas.

Happy Organizing!

I did the same thing but I used hanging file folder bins that have lids, paid about $5/bin right around the 1st of the year at an office supply store. In addition to a file for each grade I have files for each year and in that file I put greeting cards the kids receive and ticket stubs/programs etc of things they attend but that aren't school related. When each child is 18 they'll probably have 2 bins and so I can decide if I want to seperate them into "school" and "other" or keep them sorted how they are now. I LOVE your blog!!!
