Large Folders Boost Flat File Cabinet Storage


Organization is the Cornerstone to Maximum Production

messy Flat file cabinet cropped 600pxI once saw a bumper sticker that read, “Organized people are just too lazy to search for stuff.” While this is cute, it only scratches the surface of the benefits of organization. Being organized improves focus, makes you more productive and helps you achieve your goals. No doubt that things are done more quickly when the items you need are at your fingertips. Organization requires tools. These tools are usually simple and basic. These tools are a way to create a place for everything and have everything in it’s place. In our offices this means filing!

Filing – Tools of the Trade

Folders and labels are the basic – the very minimum of what is required for any efficient filing system. Imagine you being told that you must organize your office filing but you must do it without folders – no folders at all! You would think this is entirely crazy – a totally ridiculous task. But we face this problem every day while organizing the storage of our blueprints, plats, engineering and architectural plans in flat file cabinets. Flat file cabinet drawers can hold up to 100 large documents for active storage and up to 200 documents for inactive storage. This means that each drawer holds a pile of 100 documents. A pile you must leaf through sheet by sheet every time you need to find a document.
