Jess designed these SUPER cute (free) printables for all of us to share, and to hopefully get us more organized!
I came up with a few different ideas for them, to help spark your creativity! I know you will come up with something brilliant!

1~ I bought a pack of multi colored folders at WalMart for a few bucks, and they happened to match both boy and girl designs perfectly! I like the idea of a folder, because I know I can throw things in there quick if I need to, then I can punch holes & put rings through to hold everything in permanently later.

2~ These little notebooks are a MUST if you have kids! They are only .94 cents at WalMart. 

AND they will help your child's dexterity ;)

My kindergartner ALWAYS wants paper to doodle on... she has since she could hold a pencil! 

Your little one will think it is SO cool to have their own lil book (I think of it as a journal), that they might not scribble on your Receipts, Bills, WALLS! 

I encourage my little one to glue little things she has made, or pictures she likes in her book (which is so not as cute as the one I made for Carson, Jess's lil guy) 

What better journal entry than a darling hand drawn.. something or other ;)

3~ Since Carson is still a baby I thought his first few drawings should be kept safe in an envelope (after they are displayed proudly on the fridge for a while!)

Let's face it, you will have good intentions to scrap book these little scribbles, but if you live in the real world, you wont get to it for a while, so why not store them somewhere cute and clearly labeled?

You have no idea how good it felt to gather all the stray papers off my fridge, off Em's desk, or shoved down in her backpack! Now they are neatly organized in this cute folder. I made the Kindergarten and First Grade tags on Picnik (one of my fave websites!)
These are all the papers I have been saving for the last 3 to 4 years from Pre School and Primary.... so I did the Purge! I threw away a small pile, and kept the special things in the box.. The rest went into the book, and Emma just keeps picking it up and going thru it.. "Did I really do this?" she kept asking me. 
I realized that I wasn't making the books just for me.
As I was making these books I ran across a cute little book similar to the one above on Pinterest (I was seeking much needed inspiration)  see here She scanned in all her daughters artwork, shrunk it down and made cute little books for the Grandparents. I ask you, "WHO HAS TIME FOR THAT?!".... LOVE LOVE the idea though!

Have fun getting more organized this year, and keep checking back for all the fun projects we have in store for you!
 ~We want to see what you make with these printables, we may even feature you!~
