Our filing cabinet always stays crammed full of junk no matter how often you clean and organize. I was so tired of losing my coupons down in the folders when someone else would rummage through the files looking for other things. How am I suppose to save any money if I can't find my coupons?
I was searching for a simple and cheap solution for my problem when I came across the Mainstays Expaning File. The shelves were full of these cheery and bright colored folders and I thought to myself 'Perfect!'. I chose orange so it would stand out and no one could confuse it with their own among the cobbles of stuff in the filing cabinet.
It has 6 expanding slots with tabs for labeling making it perfect for coupons to be divided into categories. It's only about half the size of a normal file folder so it makes it very easy to pack into the grocery store without getting stares. The loop closure is super sturdy and does not fly open at random helping to keep all my hard clipping work where it's suppose to be and not at the bottom of the seemingly bottomless black filing cabinet.
I have to say that for around $5 you can't go wrong with this little thing. I have looked since my purchase for them again to be used for recipes and such but have been unable to locate any more. I think they are only available around back to school time from what I have noticed and have meant to ask the store about them but keep forgetting. If you do happen to stumble across one of these cheerfully bright babies I suggest grabbing a couple to help you get organized. They are perfect for lots of different things.
