Keeping school papers organized is as easy as ABC with Adobe Acrobat Online
Whether your kids are just starting kindergarten or finishing high school, the deluge of school paperwork – from finger painting memorabilia to report cards – is enough to make a mess of any household. Especially when kids and parents share a workspace at home, keeping your space free of bulky paper is important for productivity and sanity.
You can fill dozens of files with school memorabilia and mementos dating back to your child’s first grade days. Or you can save space and keep everything in a digital filing system with Adobe Acrobat Online Tools and the Adobe Scan application. And organizing your files will be faster than trying to remember how to do a long division – so you may have more time to help your kids with their math homework.
Chronicle of artistic projects for each school year
While each and every piece of art your children make seem priceless, the sheer amount may make you want to throw away more than you save. the Adobe Scan application is the solution. Use your smartphone’s camera to capture macaroni art in its pristine state, before the ravages of time turn it into a coarse, crumbly mess.
Retire your label maker. And add your child’s name, date, and any additional information to the file name of your scan – so you can quickly find anything by searching your simple organized PDF file system. Whether it’s time to scrapbook or just take a trip down memory lane, Adobe’s cloud storage keeps years of art or documents close at hand. Plus, you can access it from any device or browser with an Adobe connection.
Capture and keep school photos too
Don’t let a single adorable or scary school photo get lost in the remodel. Instead of cluttering your desk with shoeboxes full of photos, use Adobe Scan to digitally collect and store school photos. They will be easy to find and re-print for photo books. You can easily extract files to add to your family newsletter or order them on personalized coffee mugs to remind you of your kids during the work day.
