The best part is when he'd remember something in there and go searching for it. School paraphernalia everywhere. And then he and his brother would dance in it (not the baby--he just tried to eat it all). It was time to stop the madness.
"Save me! Someone save me!"
We decided to save
*art projects (I told my 3-year old, "anything you painted or glued.")
*writers' workshop books
*anything that got an, "Oh, I remember this! I love(d) this!"
Aaaand the boys know where to put new "keepers." So hopefully we will keep this drawer clean and the tablecloth can live in peace. I will buy it a friend, I think. Or perhaps three.
I shall link my labels so you can benefit from all my designing toil. If you'd like to print the words on the labels, open the .png in your program of choice (even Microsoft Word), choose a cute font (necessary), and add your own. Print them, cut them (I will also link a Silhouette file for fellow fans), stick them anywhere. You could print them on sticker paper if you want to skip the gluing step.
Also, please note: these are extra large. When you glue them on the folders, and then put the folders on top of each other to see how they look, half of the label will be covered up. If that will bug you, make the words smaller and position them in the top half of the label. It doesn't bother me, because when they have all their child crafted goodness inside, I can see the words just fine.

Enjoy! And, as always, if you use my ideas, I'd love to see!
