I have a confession to make.
I love file folders.
They make a perfect place for all of my piles of paper mess. Oh, I know you have these piles, too. All of us homeschool moms look around our house and they are everywhere. There are piles of papers on the dining room table, piles of papers on your desk, piles of papers on that side table. It's not your fault. It's just something that happens to us poor homeschool moms.
That's where file folders come in.
File folders are neat and tidy. Plus they come in handy-dandy colors.
You can use one color for each child and mark "To Grade" on the front. In goes writing papers, books reviews, and math problems.
You can save papers in file folders Use the same color for the child you used before. Only this time, write on the cover "Writing Papers Grade 4" or whatever grade your son or daughter is in.
I also use these folders for little games I download online. Or worksheets. I'm able to browse through my file cabinet to find "rhyming worksheets, animals-babies worksheets, telling time worksheets, and multiplication worksheets.

I also put personal plans & ideas in file folders. Here are some file folders in my personal drawer:
Well, I hope you enjoy file folders as much as I do. They get rid of paper piles and give me easy access to everything I need.
Until Next Time, Happy Homeschooling!
