I always seem to have problems with file folder tabs being too close together when I have a bunch of manila folders without a lot of content. As a result labels and tabs get hidden -- which makes it hard to scan the drawer or even find a specific folder. I used to do straight-line filing with a hanging folder and this wasn't really an issue there, but it seems to be an issue with plain manila folders even if I don't use straight-line filing.
Is there some general strategy or tool I'm missing? Do others have a strategy for dealing with this, or do they just live with it?
It makes me tempted to switch back to hanging files, perhaps using something like FasTab, but I still don't like that approach because the hooks get in the way when bringing them with you.
