Before GTD the only file cabinets I ever "used" (and I use that word loosely) were the pendaflex, hanging kind.
So after GTD a friend gave me a 2 draw filing cabinet - I use one draw for reference and one for tickler. It's a cheapo cabinet but it's not hanging folders/pendaflex. These files are *supposed" to "stand" on their own.
So here's my big frustration: The files are either so squished together that I can't sift through them or they're so loose that they're practically laying down flat in a draw!
Each draw has one of those "bars" in the back that you adjust to squish the files together but I just can't find a comfortable position!
I thought there was something wrong with the cabinet so I went to Staples to look at new ones. I couldn't see anything different with theirs (of course, I didn't have a stack of files to test it with).
Can you guys relate to this or am i doing something wrong?
