I have used this type of transparent envelope system for many years at home. I'm not sure I want to incorporate it at work (government) but, I'm still mulling it over. Your blog keeps me thinking. Thanks!
My pleasure. And thanks for adding your thoughts.
The pretty, and probably pricey, nature of the plastic envelopes makes them too precious for me...I need something cheap, customizable and down-and-dirty.Cheap so that it's easily expandable. You'll resist creating new files for something if your materials are too expensive or it's extra effort to procure them.While there are merits to seeing what's in your folders, visually, I see this as creating clutter. And adding distraction to what should be an otherwise neutral system.Besides, what are you really going to see in there from the sideview anyway? The sides of papers?Since you have to flip through your files to see what's in them anyway, personally, I'd go back to the yellow envelopes and label the fronts.In my system, I have well over 100 of these folders, categorized, labeled and color-coded to my liking. I don't see this method as being flexible enough.If it works for you, that's great. But, frankly, it's not for me.
