The following post is from LifeasMOM contributor, JessieLeigh :
Thanks to record snowfalls this past winter, we won’t be getting out of school until the end of June this year. I know some of you have been out for a month already! Either way, there’s always lots of paperwork to sort through and deal with.
It is always astounding to me just how much STUFF comes home with my two school-aged children. Between daily reports, artwork, homework, classwork, permission slips, special event notifications, and town news, I end up with an average of more than a dozen pieces of extra paper each day. That’s a lot of extra clutter!
Now that the school year is over, it’s important to tackle that mountain of paper and cull out the only ones that really need saving.
Here are five steps I’ll be taking to tackle that chore:
If I follow those steps, I should get things back in reasonable order. More important than all that, perhaps? Avoiding the avalanche in the coming school year. It will be here all too soon!
Some things to keep in mind as the papers start flowing through the door…
I’m looking forward to a relatively paperless summer and to keeping it all in check in the coming school year!
