When I started cm'ing my network gave me a satchel type bag with logo on it and I have always used it for my paperpwork but it is now overflowing!

I need something handy for children's files, I have a box file of old contracts, green books and red books (also crammed full), and a bag too.

I am beginning to drown in papers so interested in what everyone else does. grin

I got a three draw file cabinet from freecycle (buy that is overflowing and still some files stacked next to it!)

Ooh freeycle is a good idea actually, I am a member but unsubscribed from the emails. I don't know where I would put one though!

I have 12 bright pink lever arch files... an EYFS Observation file for each child, planning, risk assessments, policies, portfolio etc. Much easier to keep them separate.. it can get out of hand so easily!

Where do you put them though hennipenni?

Feel like I am losing the battle and cm'ing bunf is taking over the house! grin

I have a shelving area and use nice lever arches for paperwork etc, anything confidential goes into a locked file.

I need another shelf now though hmm

I have a shelf I put them all on... (it all takes up so much space, doesn't it? I had to pack up all our lovely books to find the space) they aren't locked though... should they be?

Yes I was thinking maybe shelving...

I believe it does have to be kept confidential - I used to keep mine in a locked cabinet but don't anymore as don't fit! You would think a locked (fort knoxx style) house would suffice wouldn't you. hmm
