I don't possess the big type of file cabinet that are found in most offices and thus I don't have access to that slider David Allen talks about, so I picked up the first portable file boxes I found at office depot and a 100 manila folders.
Here are pictures of my current setup. I put the mindmaps folder in front of my tickler file folders, because I only got 2 file boxes and I didnt see the need to have one JUST for projects yet.
Couple things about this.
1. I had to use books to prop up my folders. No slider to support them :P
2. How is one supposed to SEE the labels on the folders? Wouldn't hanging file folders at least allow you to separate each folder with some really small space so you could actually see what the folders were as opposed to this... stack... You can see on the side of the filebox it has gutter things for hanging folders.
3. Yes, I do need it to be portable. I'm not going to be moving it around very often, but I will be doing so enough that they need to be portable.
Anyone have a solution for me? Or do I just need to go and pickup a stack of hanging file folders? Or should I return the fileboxes and get something different? (Mabye ones that I can just put labels from the labeler on? No insertable tabs and such..)
