Organize school portraits in a three-ring binder

via www.bellapamella.com

Quick and easy way to keep track of your kids' school portraits! For long-term storage, I suggest acid-free envelopes, but, in the short term, this is a fantastic way to keep all the portraits in one place.

Thank you, @irishgirl, for the pointer!

By the way, Twitter and Facebook are great ways to let me know about Parent Hacks-worthy links.

I do something a little different. I have a binder for each child with page protectors and I put all the class, team, camp, girl scout group photos, whatever. The kids love to go through their special books.

I do this same thing, except that I use a clear page protector (the kind with a top flap from Office Depot) instead of the original envelope so that I can see more of the photos inside.

My mom used to do this with my school photos. I have no idea what she did with all of those pictures now, though.
