How to Organize School Pictures


How do you organize school pictures? Now that the school year is over, this is a great time to close out everything from the school year. Every year I buy their school pictures, but I can’t even find the ones from the previous years. What a mess! I needed to find a super easy way to organize school pictures.

How to Organize School Pictures

The hardest part of getting school pictures organized is finding them all. They were stored in lots of random boxes and files. Once I found all of them, I sorted them by child and then started organizing them by year. It’s much harder than I would have thought to sort through 10 years of school pictures and decide which ones were which grade.

I have tons of Clear Sheet Protectors left over from all my days as an accompanist, so I just borrowed from an old music binder and used them to get my pictures organized. Maybe some day when I have more time I’ll go through and make pretty little labels showing the years or the grade, but for now I’m just thrilled to have them all in one place where I can easily find them.

It’s amazing how quickly the kids change. I love being able to flip through the school years and remember their favorite outfits, smiles, missing teeth and hairstyles! And just think…. it didn’t cost me a penny!


You can order Sheet Protectors from Amazon or look for them at your local Office store. And of course there are some really need ways to display the school pictures for each year! Check out some of these options available on!

I was working to take this picture for the post and kept getting photo bombed!

  1. Great idea!!! My kids are 41 and 45 so I have soooo much catching up to do!!!! The oldest grandchild is 21, then 13 and 16!!! Then the youngest are 1 & 2 so I am trying very hard to limit my photo taking and organizing the pictures a.s.a.p!!! (When the 2 year old was born I had a total of 2000 pics in the first month!! and because of covid, didn’t even meet him until he was 1 year and 1/2!!) Ask your kids if they are older of the school year….both my kdis remember their pictures by the hair cut or the madonna era or Debbie Gibson era or the era he wore only joggers or the era when he thought he was a rapper!! LOL!! It will at least dwindle the time period down!!

  2. Love it! I have been overwhelmed with the tons of school pictures I have of my four kids. The youngest is just starting her school picture journey, she is only 3. I have attempted to organize my collection by separating the group of pictures of each child in a box and that is as far as I have gone with it.

    Photobombs are the best!
