With school officially in session all over the country, organization and paper filing are in full swing. There are permission slips, school reports, classroom artwork... so much to file! How do you keep track of it all? Here's what I'd do:

, complete with tabs to organize the paperwork they'll be bringing home. It will give (a) your child a sense of responsibility and ownership, and (b) you some time away from filing endless paperwork! Why not make it into a fun craft night by following Katherine's fun fabric file folder tutorial
(whew! Say that three times fast!).
