View Full Version : Filing Cabinet Hardware
04-20-2011, 11:06 PM
In the book "Getting Things Done", my understanding of what David says is that he doesn't really like the Lever Arch filing system and prefers simply using manilla style folders on their own with file dividers. i don't properly understand how this system works practically. I agree that the hanging Lever Arch file carriers can be a nuisance but this is my only experience with filing stuff in a cabinet (maybe I'm a bit sheltered;)). I am starting to establish a new work office and I’d love to see better ideas for filing cabinet use. Photos, internet links or product names would be good to see. If you don't use the Lever Arch file holders and the plastic label tabs on top, how are labels clearly visible?

I have the same question

Some drawers just won't work without the hanging file hardware. If that's your case, then use hanging files. David then just suggests one manilla inside a hanging file so those manilla folders don't start prairie dogging out of the drawer.
Here's an article with a picture of no hanging folders in a drawer that allows that:
