How to Organize PECS Pictures

For so many of our students with Autism, picture exchange communication systems (PECS) are how our students communicate.  This program has been very successful for a lot of kids with autism in learning how to communicate their wants/needs. 

 These pictures are also useful to adapt academic activities in the classroom for nonverbal students.  The main problem I have found with this program is that I end up with SO MANY pictures and nowhere to store them!  
I have tried several ways of storing them, until I found the one that worked best for me.  I bought clear plastic baseball card holders at target and put them in a binder.  Then I organized pictures according to categories.  A section of pictures in alphabetical order, a section of schedule pictures, etc.  This takes up little space and allows easy access to your pictures whenever you need them!
