I hate having to rummage through files in a cabinet to find the originals of assignments to photocopy. I also dislike trying to find them on my computer. So I put each original in a plastic page sleeve and put it in a notebook that I keep for each class. Then, when I need something, I can tell at a glance what it is and what other materials I have for the topic. This works especially well when a student has to make up a quiz and I don't have any extra copies. When a colleague teaches a class I had previously taught, I merely hand him/her the appropriate notebook filled with materials.
