An Alternative to Papers on your Desk

You probably get current project files on your desk, but you probably then also know what a hazard this is to your productivity. Office supplies to the rescue! During my monthly Office Depot trip to buy my office supplies for the month, I bought color file jackets. File jackets are a much, much better method for keeping current project files on your desk.

File jackets are:

-color coded (easy and fun to sort visually)

-able to hold manila folders (I'm talking about expandable file jackets, not file envelopes)

-good to keep on your desk

-easy to grab when you're on the go

-a secure solution: papers don't fall out of them unless you shake them upside down

-a money-saving solution: put current project manila folders in there and don't color-code them: use the color file jackets to color code

You can buy a pack of five color file jackets for about $12 from your local Office Depot or from the Office Depot website, and you won't regret it!
