School Work Storage
In just a matter of weeks (days?), all the school children will come trucking home with the bounty of their academia: book reports, folders full of homework assignments, artwork, and the like. It will arrive in a paper grocery bag or will be dumped out of a ragged backpack and it will then be up to you, the parents, to take over as steward of said schoolwork.
Perhaps in past years you weren’t properly prepared to deal with this mass of papers. Maybe last year’s lot is still sitting in that same crumpled Trader Joe’s bag. Maybe you have positively no idea what ever happened to past schoolwork stacks.
But this year–oh, this year–this year will be different. This year you will ensure you have the necessary storage supplies to house the schoolwork in advance of its being brought home. This year you will consciously limit the amount of schoolwork you store. You may schedule a time to sit with your small human and take a gander over all they’ve created, and while doing so will decide together on which select few projects to keep. You might readily recycle the majority of homework handouts that contain next to none of your child’s developing personality.
