It is important to create and maintain a filing system, but it need not be a tremendous hassle. Though many people use hanging files, regular folders can be just as effective. Labels are a vital component to each folder, and erasable labels are even more useful. Two-sided or self-adhesive labels can also work to make sure all your documents go in the correct place.
- One solution is to avoid hanging file folders altogether and just use standard file folders.
- Alternatively, I’m guessing you could attach a self-adhesive label made with a label maker to the tab if you prefer that to handwritten labels.
- This solution assumes you use interior file folders in your hanging files, which not everyone does.
