Granted!

Good heavens, no, don't keep them unless you required them for record-keeping.

Goodness, no. I throw everything away at the end of the week, sometimes before.

I don't need to keep any proof of work, though.

Stop that!



In answer to the question, no, I don't keep every single one. I keep a few just so the kids have a visual to show them how much they've improved in any given subject (i.e. when Timothy's getting frustrated with his math, I can go back and show him how much his math has improved and it makes him feel better), but I don't have enough storage space for that much paperwork.

Thanks, everybody! I tore the covers off so we'd have some reminder of what they've done and THREW AWAY several workbooks!

I have way too much stuff in a bin somewhere and I think I'm gonna toss it when I get the chance...I feel overwhelmed by all of it and since one of mine is in school now, I definitely don't need it...

William wants proof of work, so I'm going to start taking pictures of work pages and uploading them into Evernote.

I'm in a non-reporting state and I still have a hard time throwing out workbooks lol. However, my shelves are getting full so this thread should motivate me to get rid of some of it.
