And ended up like this:Now isn't that a thing of beauty??? Although many people don't recommend labeling your files with dates, I felt it would help me stay on task if there was a date there rather than "Week 1". It's just too easy for me to say "Oh well, Week 12 can be NEXT week" and I can totally see myself at the end of the year with still 10 weeks to go.
Each color is labeled with "Tony's Math" or "Grace's handwriting" etc so it's easy for me to keep their completed work straight. Now the plan is for me to go through those once a month and keep a sample and toss the rest. We haven't schooled for a month yet so I don't know how I'll do with keeping up with that but we'll see. Most likely, when they get so cram packed full of papers that nothing else will fit and my desk becomes the overflow, I will go through and toss stuff. :D
