Organizing ‘Quick Tip’

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Open the drawer of your file cabinet. Are papers peeking over the top of your file folders? If your answer is ‘Yes,’ then read on…
Grab a manila folder and take a good look at it. You may have never noticed it, but there are scored lines at the bottom of most folders–some folders have three lines across and some have five. 

To make more space for papers in your folder, bend and crease one of the lines to create a box-bottomed effect. Creasing the highest of the three or five lines will provide you with the most space inside your folder.
