The school year is almost over. What do we do with all that paper?

It’s almost that time of year again. While the end of the school year brings excitement for the summer, with it comes a bookbag full of paper and artwork that will land right on your kitchen table. To help ease the potential stress, here are some tips and ideas for managing all of those items that your children bring home.

Prepare the night before. The last day of school is always an exciting time for students. They’ll come home ready to begin a fun summer. But it’s a good idea to take care of emptying bookbags first. To get ready, clear off the kitchen table the night before so the kids have enough room to empty their book bags right when they come home. Get a garbage bag ready for the paper you’ll inevitably be able to recycle. Decide on a storage solution (see ideas below) for the items that will be kept so you’re ready to go. Discuss the plan of attack with your kids so they’re ready and know the plan.
