    I organize by content (Science/Writing/Reading/SS/Math). Then within that I break it down by subject (matter, predicting, subtraction, etc.)

    I also have holiday things by month folders like Aug - Sept, Oct - Dec, etc.

    To make sure that I use it when I plan I take out the folders that I need for the selected time period and go through it to resuse things that I previously saved. It does take work to keep up the file system but it is worth it.

    THis would take probably a whole day...but would be worth it....Scan each document and save the file on a jump drive. You can organize folders on the jump drive my grade level and or subject or even by month you would use it.

    I vote to recycle it. There is very little that can't be found with a quick google search.

    My much beloved paras did this for me. :)

    I have a file system they set up for me. Everything is broken down by subject area and then into more specific categories. I like the idea of having holiday sheets too, I'll have to get that set up this year as well.
