Memories and Keepsakes Organizing

In addition to decluttering and purging the house, I have decided that it is high time to figure out the photos and keepsakes. I have from 2003 to present to figure out. I really want to focus on this area before the end of the school year. My daughter is in senior kindergarten and,
if you have school-age children, you can appreciate the incredible amount of art and paperwork that comes home from the school - and she's only alternate days in school! Next year she will be in grade 1 and my son will start junior kindergarten full day every day. If I don't get control of things now and get a system in place I fear I may be lost under their artwork.

The Plan:
Baby steps. One step at a time. For now the focus is the framing of family photos and hanging them up as well as the keepsake books to reduce the "stuff" in the totes.

Here are a few links that have inspired me on how to keep the children's keepsakes and how to organize their future artwork.
