I found today’s organizing ideas on babble with lots of good ideas by Ashley Hackshaw of Lil Blue Boo. Here are her tips and links to tutorials:

  1. Artwork and More: Make an easy portfolio to hold precious artwork. It can be stored behind a chest of drawers or under bed. Click here for the tutorial.
  2. Printing Digital Photos: Do you have anxiety about printing all those digital photos? I have a process I use to catch up. Read more here on printing YEARS worth of photos.
  3. Organizing Photos: Not sure what to do about stacks and stacks of photos? Try organizing them with an easy checklist method so you never get lost or disorganized. Click here for the free download.
  4. Photo Books: In addition to photo albums, I also make a yearly digital book with photos, artwork, quotes etc for my daughter. I’ve compiled all my page ideas into one master post. Click here to see all the samples!

  6. Memory Notes: An easy way to keep track of events and milestones for your child (or you!) is to keep a notebook in your car. Read more about the “school gossip” book here.
