As a family with two parents who work outside the home and two daughters in two different schools, you can imagine the amount of paperwork that piles up on my desk. From bills to permission slips, book orders to pictures, you name it and it’s in a huge pile. This Summer, SMEAD is challenging you to go from piles to files with their new file system!
My space is quite limited, so I was honestly skeptical about whether or not a file system on my desk would work for me. But, I was pleasantly surprised that this system does not take up much space at all. I was sent an expanding Stadium File that has enough room for 12 folders which are displayed in a tiered fashion so all the folders can be seen at once. The Smead SuperTab file folders work great in the Stadium File System because they have nearly double the labeling space and three tab positions to increase their visibility. The folders come in a wide variety of colors, too, so organizing is a snap!
Part of this new organizational line by Smead is the Viewables labeling system. These printable labels make customizing your folders very easy and even includes software for flawless design. While I prefer to hand write my labels, I think the printed labels look very nice and would be more professional in an office setting.
I created a color coded system for each family member so now I can easily file papers when they come home from school and find them again as a deadline approaches. The new file system as definitely lowered my paperwork frustration!
