I can tell you that everything I come across I think what can I do with
that> In my house we have a plastic bag that all the toliet paper and paper
towel rolls go in. I am also in the process of saving different food
packaging. This is my second year of teaching and I inherited alot of
wonderful files and visuals. I think for me I save everything and then as I
advande in my career I hope to have a better idea of where I want the kids
to go and what things are ready to be retired. But that is just my two

You've already gotten some good advice; I just want to encourage you to
save any posters or smaller images of art. Postcards are a good size for
bulletin boards, as well. You will find these images very handy as years
go by.

I also like having files of magazine photos of all sorts of things the
students may need to draw. I sort them by subject (horses, dogs,
landscapes, water, sky, faces, etc.). I don't like them to use other
people's drawings or artwork as references. It's easy to keep these neat
in a portable file box.
