Parents SAVE your child's backpack at the end of the year and use it as a time capsule for everything special that was brought home that year! I store everything my kids bring home from school in these boxes (see below) then at the end of the year I empty the boxes into their backpack for that year, and throw it in the attic..... This totally prohibits me from saving more than we need , and eliminates can sneak photos, a soccer jersey, a trophy, dance costume and much more into these sweet time capsules! I cant WAIT to give my kids their bags someday (if they have the same name. Plus they may want to reuse them for their kids never know! Cheers! Good luck!
