I'm shifting my organization project focus to getting Lovebug's world in order. I'm starting with invitations, cards and other memorabilia.
I had all these items kept in a box, but it was starting to get unruly. So, I picked up a 20 Pocket Accordion Folder and started filing the cards away.
I kept the organization pretty simple: Baby Shower (which includes anything we were given pre-birth), Birth, then a pocket for each year of life.
The 20 pocket folder is great because it will last until her 18th birthday, assuming she continues saving cards that long. Plus, this particular folder has tons of room to grow.
Each pocket has items like:
Invitations - both those she's given and those she's received (including baby shower invites)
Games from the baby showers / birthday parties given for her
Random Cards / Letters she has received
Small souvenirs from various events throughout the year
I even have some of the paper decorations from her birthday parties stored in here
