Low plastic office: manila folders

Over the last couple of decades I have used, revised and rejected more document filing systems than I care to recall. While I never plan to go paperless, I do hope to convert many of my less useful files to PDFs and leave current and active files or vital documents as paper.

And I plan to keep them in plain old manila folders. It’s easy to find them packed in cardboard boxes and recycled fiber content folders are available. (I’ve given up on bulky hanging file folders; I hate how they snag on anything and everything. They also have plastic waste: the tabs.)

Sometimes the solutions can be found in the ordinary and familiar.
