Upgrade Your Filing Style

January 14th, 2015

After becoming familiar with using a product, sometimes people will always continue to use it. Organization methods that we learned in school and supplies that we used can be carried over into the professional world.

Products like Two-Pocket Portfolios, which were once used to hold class notes, can still be beneficial when organizing information at work. Although the products work in both scenarios, C-Line has a developed a professional look to separate classroom supplies and office products.

December 18th, 2014

Sometimes the best way to see how a product can be beneficial is to look at how someone stores files or information before a C-Line product was used. To show how valuable the 13-Pocket Ladder Expanding File can be, take a look at “Before” and “After” the product was in use.

Teacher Explains How Sorter Keeps His Classroom Organized

December 10th, 2014

A customer favorite, C-Line’s Sorter is a tool that many individuals use to organize their paperwork. The sorters have different labeling systems on them, so almost anyone can benefit from using it. It even comes in a left-handed version so everyone can easily file!

The sorter is also commonly used by teachers. Initially, I assumed teachers would organize homework and tests alphabetically within the sorter. Although that still would work, I have always wondered what would happen if there were 5 students with a last name ending in ‘C’.

New Dry Erase Pockets Perfect Storage Place for Weekly Meal Plan

November 19th, 2014

Planning ahead is a helpful way to get organized and stay on track. Prior to grocery shopping, I have always tried to plan ahead what I was cooking throughout the week. Recently, I began writing the meal plan out at the start of each week. Doing this has kept us on track and helped avoid detouring from the plan.

In the past, I was using C-Line’s Reusable Dry Erase Pockets to store the weekly plan. Every week I would insert a schedule printed on letter-size paper into the holder. Next, I would write out the meals for the week directly on the dry erase surface.

Vertical Storage Becomes Space Saver at Trade Show

October 29th, 2014

When our sales team attends trade shows and conferences, the goal is to utilize C-Line’s products as much as possible within the exhibit space. It helps the show attendees visualize how products are actually used, and we enjoy putting our items on display.

The 13-Pocket Vertical Expanding File was added to the line in early 2014, and in a short amount of time, this item has become essential to have at all shows we exhibit at. It has been put to use in a variety of ways, but the most beneficial aspect of the file is how it organizes the papers.

Create an Ideal Coaching Portfolio with the 8-Pocket Portfolio and Dry Erase Sheets

October 22nd, 2014

Taking up new projects is something I have always enjoyed doing. A few months ago, I decided to start coaching for a grammar school volleyball team. Having only played and never coached before, I was not aware of what to expect, but I was definitely excited about the opportunity.

Within a week of signing up to coach, I was provided with a packet of documents that included emergency contact information, registration and medical information, schedules, etc. Each coach was required to have all of this information on hand for every game and practice, so I needed to get it organized quickly.

Index Dividers with Pockets Keeps Documents in Order to Home Renovation

October 15th, 2014

After contemplating for months about whether or not to remodel her home, a coworker has decided to start making plans to renovate her kitchen. Knowing that the planning process would be extensive, she wanted to be sure to stay organized so that all of her research would be in order.

Keeping track of quotes and vendors she contacted, in addition to tracking all of her final decisions would be beneficial in the long run. Not only would she be able to recall what colors were used to paint the kitchen, but she could also fall back on another company if her contractor ever fell through.

After attending a trade show last month, I gained a new appreciation for one of C-Line’s products.

The Lay-Flat Power Extension and Cord Cover is a unique industrial product, which was first introduced to the line earlier this year. Originally, our plan was to display this product on a table at the show, but it ended up being a valuable tool while setting up.

Name Badges Used to Identify Important Things in Classroom

August 14th, 2014

When it comes to name badges, I think it is a pretty safe bet that everyone has had some interaction with these ID products. Often used at trade shows and group gatherings, the badges help communicate who you are to someone without having to verbally say it.

A friend of mine tried to apply this same logic to her classroom when she began to prepare for the new school year. Her goal was to help her students get acclimated to their new classroom without having to constantly stop class to demonstrate where things were located.
