Using binders creatively

Useful Binders Binders aren't just useful for school: they're perfect for card collections, photo albums, and even recipes.

School bells and lockers usually come into focus when we’re thinking about binders—and it’s true, binders are an excellent resource for students. Part of their usefulness comes from how they help teach organizational skills. Since binder tabs are such a simple and effective organizational method, using them is an easy way for kids (or adults) to cultivate good habits..

The binder tab system also helps parents and teachers collaborate with students when it comes to organizing school papers. With tabs, it’s easy monitor progress, assignments, and fliers for upcoming events. As an educator, you might find binders to be an effective tool as well—if different kinds of assignments carry different grading weights, divvying up student work into separate categories could help shorten your grading and planning in the long run.

Binders are a good solution for many contexts, not just academic ones. Here are a few other ideas for creative uses for binders.

  • Recipes: Store all your favorite recipes by food groups (veggies, chicken, meat, and fish) or by meal (breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner).

  • Correspondences: Keep your correspondences filed by person, year, or kind—postcards in one tab, for example, and Christmas cards in another.

  • Financial Accounting: Track all your financial receipts, forms, documents, bills, subscriptions and tax returns. Why pay a financial accountant when you can be your own?

  • Photos: Compile photo albums into laminated sheets with slots and then just stick them into a binder.

  • Collections: Protect and catalogue your card collections, stamps, matchbooks or postcards.

  • Scrapbooks: Keep a record of significant, sentimental events. Many parents use binders to keep their child's artwork, report cards, tests, and projects safely stored and sorted.
