Get sorted with a file sorter

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Have you found that it is halfway through the year and you’ve fallen behind on filing? It doesn’t have to be a constant game of “catch-up” when it comes to file organization. If you use a heavy duty sorter, the time it takes to put away records, letters or invoices will decrease. Plus, the pressboard divider and metal tab construction ensure long-lasting durability.

New household file organization with clear sheet protectors

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Recently, my husband and I moved into a new home.  And I thought, what better way to shuffle around my home office organization method than now.  Previously, I used to organize our bills, statements and receipts in individually-marked file folders. All of those were placed in a decorative file box. This was handy because we did not have a formal office.  Now we do.

The id is printed on a plastic credit card-size card. It is small, but since my workout gear doesn’t have pockets, a bit inconvenient to carry around. With the plastic holder, I can scan my tag when I arrive, then clip it to my shirt and forget about it.

Rather than just throw it into the card’s paper envelope, use a vinyl envelope as a gift card holder.

A report cover showcases style and demands attention

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Why would you spend days, maybe weeks, working on a project or presentation, only to hold it all together with a simple paper clip or staple.  That certainly doesn’t give it the attention it deserves, does it?!? Let anyone receiving your masterpiece know how important it is by putting it in a report cover.
