My dining room table looked like this Wednesday night:
Binders, notebooks, papers, workbooks -- all sent home in a Big Bag for Mommy to sort through and organize. I refused to go to bed until it was done otherwise it just might get Piled until next September. =)

My simple method of keeping the School Paper Monster under control is an accordion file. I prefer the poly variety as they come in bright, cheerful colors ... Imagine that. =)
As worksheets, art work, teacher notes, and the like come home from school, I file away a few in the accordion file and recycle the rest. I also include Sunday School papers and Art Work done at home.
The file is very Bulgy by the end of the year, so I have to thin it out a bit to handle that End of School Paper Barrage. That is what I did Wednesday night. =)
