In the first cabinet, I filed my eldest son’s documents by year then I put categories for each. For example:

Prebirth
– Receipts
– Souvenirs
– Medical Records
– Cards/Letters

Year 2009
– Cards/Letters
– Medical Records
– (Printed) Pictures

2013
– Preschool Arts
– Drawings/Other Arts
– Health Records
– Cards/Letters

So on and so forth…

The second drawer will be for the upcoming second child!
