I get tempura paint every year: 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade
so what to do with it all? first I make sure the cap is on secure, and I turn them upside down and with a sharpie put the year we got each bottle. be sure to use the oldest up first. then I combined any partials of the EXACT same color. VIOLA, perfect.
Brushes, I saved an old Jelly Jar, after I wash them good, I store them brush end up to dry
I have 3" binders for loose leaf paper. at one point I had 5 partial packs.
I have 3" binder with sheet protectors for storing a year's worth of tests reports, report cards, and important legal docs from school in my own permanent file including attendance print out
