product review – cool tools for managing paper

xfile-sorter-by-smeadJanuary is a great time to work on getting your papers in order. If you struggle with paper management, start the new year with a system. If you already have good systems in place, work on getting your tax-related paperwork set up so you can file taxes on time.

Hate to file? Paperwork management doesn’t require a file cabinet. Paper pilers speak highly of the Pendaflex PileSmart®. The plastic dividers allow you to separate stacks of paper without having to actually put them in a file folder. There are 10 sections for you to keep 10 projects organized.

One of my very favorite office tools is the Smead Desk File/Sorter. It acts as a “tickler” file, providing a place to set papers for specific dates. If you want to work on a project on the 21st, you put it in the slot for the 21st. Have a conference in May? Put all of your travel details in the May slot. You can keep the sorter in a file drawer or, if you have space, on your desk.

What systems do you use to keep track of paper?

    Since I move around for work, I use an expandable accordion folder with a lid. It has 13 tabs and helps keep track of everything I need. Great tips, thanks for sharing.
