Memory Box

What do you do with all your kids art work, school work, letters etc?

We bought each of our kids a Container with a lid (like a large Rubbermaid). And put their names on them and decorate them with stickers etc. We call them, “Memory Box”. Now they have a place to put all their precious art work or even birthday cards from grandma. Whenever we have too much on our fridge, I would take them off and say, “put these in your memory box, love”. And they love it, because they feel very important. You may have to go through the box once a year to only keep the good ones…but it’s a good way to be clutter-free without making the kids feel bad by throwing out all their ‘precious’ papers which probably are driving you crazy…
