Precious Storage

Every now and then my creative sparks ignite and I come up with what I think is a great idea!  This happened recently and the outcome was a great storage idea for my girls artwork!

ImageThat’s it!  A plain old 3 Ring Binder from Staples!  Ha ha!  I bought 2 packs of the plastic sheet protectors and filled a large (2.5 inch) 3 Ring binder with them.

ImageI don’t save every picture that they make but the extra specials ones that I feel are keepers are stored neatly in this binder which has a home in our craft closet.  Their letters to Santa, Birthday wish lists and a picture they made for Father’s Day are a few that are special to me.  I am not the most sentimental person and I struggle with a compulsive urge to throw everything out in order to avoid clutter.  But I know that I love looking at anything and everything that my Mom saved from my childhood so I’m sure they will be the same.  So for me, this system is perfect!

What are your storage techniques?  I would love to hear how others save their artwork and avoid clutter.
