After things have been displayed on the fridge for months I then put it into a box, but i realise this can't go on endlessly, especially when my child starts school and brings bits home everyday.

How do you decide what to keep and what to throw?

I usually keep the cute stuff like hand prints, crafts and things like that. He is always so proud of his work so it's hard to choose.

Its so hard! I have one that doesn't care and the other tears up if she sees us throw anything away! We just explain that we can't keep everything. I have one box for each of them that we add to per year of their "best" projects.

i try to keep as much as possible. the problem with that, is a lot of the projects Kale brings home, he wants to play with and they end up getting ripped, stained or torn by either him or his brother, then we have to throw it away.

I don't have the heart to throw anything away! What I've done is made separate cardboard boxes in my storeroom, one pertaining to every year/grade. And I stock up everything, with the latest ones adorning our refrigerator

Oh, man, they make so much stuff! I can't possibly keep everything from 3 kids, so I keep my favorites, display the rest on the fridge for a few weeks, and then toss them.
Hi, I'm Sara. I used to post here a lot when I was having the kids, but life got busy and it's been years since I was around. Now I'm back, and happy to be here.

I keep everything in a file. It's something that will remind me of his age and when he's going to be older I'm going to show him what he's done for me when he was younger!
