As Jonno will verify - I am often pretty quick to complete the paper life cycle (from school bag to recycling bin) with the kids artwork - It's cute and all, but they bring heaps of stuff home and we can't keep everything. Sometimes though, Jett or Zali will spot something of theirs in the recycling bin and I either get into trouble, or have to claim that an accident, or freak wind, resulted in whatever it was ending up in there. But not any more as I've just installed my solution - now we can easily supersede the displayed artworks then quietly recycle the ones at the back. Genius huh! The clipboards were from Office Works for $3.30 each. I had toyed with the idea of getting the old fashioned wood ones ($2.90) and either painting them a hot pink/red, or covering them with funky paper - but I'm now actually much happier with these clear ones as they don't dominate the artwork, or the wall.
By the way, in case you hadn't noticed, that's a picture of me on the top left clipboard.
