How do you organize your paper clutter?

I have so many worksheets to have the kids do, or keep, or toss. How do you keep from being overran with stuff?

    I have a 4 drawer file cabinet. I keep everything by child and by year. It's not required because we use a charter school but I want to just in case. Once the cabinet is full, I will throw out the oldest year. So far it is 4 yes and I have filled about 2 drawers.

    I am trying to figure out what to start keeping next year.  We will be going on our own next year.  This year we are using k12 and it is not a big deal to throw almost everything away.  Though I do keep most of the really cool art work that they make if I am really impressed.

    What I do is keep the work that needs to be worked in seperate drawers and the ones that are already worked in, I keep a few good ones and a few not so good ones for posterity's sake, in another drawer. Then I keep everything else in a box like we are moving and if I need to I can just throw them away. :)

    We have a file cabinet and a pocket chart on our wall to store all our papers.

     I keep very little, honestly.  If I'm not sure, then it goes in a file cabinet. Otherwise it typically goes to recycling right away.
