Organize Your End of the Year Filing Clutter With New and Improved FIling Products From Smead

By this time of year I am usually swimming in paperwork and filing that has been sitting on my counter or at my desk for ages.  I always mean to make the time to get organized but each day is so jam packed with stuff to get done organizing everything is the last item on my list.  Between my house bills, healthcare paperwork and my blog I have a piles of paperwork literally EVERYWHERE.  Thankfully I have some help from Smead with some great products to get me organized and prepared for the end of the year. 

November and December are my busiest months blog wise, especially with the launch of my Holiday Gift Guide Event.  I have to keep extremely organized with all my reviews and giveaways that are scheduled because I literally have one scheduled every day over the next month and a half.  I decided to finally get all of my files completely under control so I wont' have any problems finding things when I need them.

Thanks to Smead - here's my new set up:

The Review

TUFF Hanging Folder With Easy Slide Tab

The first thing that I was excited to get all set up with were the TUFF Hanging File Folders.  They are new and improved and SO much better than what I have been used to using in the past!  They are more durable, and easier to put together than ever before.  Gone are the days where the tabs pop out when you are trying to put your papers inside.  The new oversized Slide Tabs easily fit over the top of the hanging folder and lock in to place.  The bright colors are nice to look at too.


  • 11 point colored stock
  • Specially Designed reinforced channel rods
  • Heavy Duty 1/3 cut adjustable plastic tab
  • Coated rod tips
  • 10% recycled content, 10% post-consumer material

SuperTab Oversized Tab Folders

Folders are a must when separating files form one another and with Smead's SuperTab Oversized Tab Folders you have a much larger area to write or label your file folders with.  Larger text makes it easier to spot what you are looking for more easily and quickly.  They fit perfectly inside the TUFF hanging folders, now my papers for my blog are neatly organized and easy to find. 

  • 90% larger label area
  • Extra-wide 1/3 cut or 1/2 cut oversized tabs
  • 7/8" high tab, same height as standard 1/3 cut
  • 9 1/2 pt or 11 pt colored or manila stock
  • Scored for 3/4" expansion
  • Contains 10% recycled content, 10% post-consumer material

For me, this small project was only the tip of the iceberg.  I have so much more to organizing to do before I feel like my life and home are completely on track.  One tool that Smead offers for people like me is Smead Organomics.  Smead Organomics can help you get organized personally, professionally and if you have gteat tips you can help others.  Quick tips and trick from the experts can help you, and me,  finally get organize.  Be sure to check them out and also Like them on Facebook too!
