Organizing with Classification Folders - Top 20 Ideas

I LOVE using Classification Folders. I will use any excuse I can find to rationalize utilizing these little pronged wonders! Mostly I use the 6-prong Classification Folders, but they also come in 2 prong, 4 prong and they even have ones with elastic bands for the corners. These are absolutely brilliant for large files. The last time I used the elastic bands were for a client's Business Development Contract files. They had the Lead Sheet, Proposal, Contract, Sales Account Plan, Meeting Notes, and Sales Forecast and it was gorgeous! The Account Manager had an instant snap shot of their client and papers never fell out of the file! Not only did the papers stay put, it made the AM look like a million bucks when visiting with clients. Although this is a standard reason for using classification folders, it's not the only one!

I have put together a fun little list of some of my all time favorite uses for organizing papers using Classification Folders. Sit back, enjoy the list, and let your imagination run wild with the possibilities!

1. Ultimate To Do List
2. Organize Your Wedding Plans
3. Daily Routine

Whichever use you find for the folder, be sure and distinguish between topics for ease in finding papers. Other than that, enjoy your new found life of contained paper!

Happy Organizing!
