Smead� Color File Folders, Letter Size, 1/3 Cut, Yellow, Box Of 100
Organizing My Classroom Files
I use colored file folders to help keep my lessons, student worksheets, etc. organized. When you open my file drawers you will noticed how color coded they are.
Red file folders-Reading (because the words read and red are close in spelling)
Orange file folders-Grammar/Writing (orange is close to red)
Pink file folders-Spelling/Phonics (pink is another form of red)
Yellow file folders-Math (it was a color left over)
Green file folders-Science (I think of science associated with life and green)
Blue file folders-Social Studies (I think of the blue earth & people around the world with blue)
Gray file folders-Homework. (since homework covers all of the subjects, I picked gray as a neutral color)
It is great to have my files like this so that I can go right to the subject & know where to find things!
I also use a lot of folders for my classroom file folder center activities. I use the same color code for the files so the students know what subject they are-it helps to keep them organized.

In Home Office and traveling
I am a very busy Clinical Lead for a pharmaceutical company. I am not only responsible for a large area of the country, but have many projects on a weekly basis. While I have files on my laptop, i am an ORGAINIZING FREAK. I take my files along on the plane, across country and to my meetings. Without Smead file folders, I would be sunk. I choose them over generic brands because they are strong, hold up under horrendous conditions in my briefcase, take a lot of punishment on a plane, taxis, shuttles and in hotels. where I tend to toss them onto the desk. I've tried generic but came back and won't make that mistake again. Thanks for a wonderful, economical product.

1/3 cut Tab File folders
When ordering 1/3 cut tab folders, I only order Smead. They are durable; the colors stay true longer (even in semi-direct sunlight); and there is a wide variety of colors, so organizing is easy!

Smead file folders come in an array of colors, they are strong and provide consistant premium quality. I find them very helpful in organizing dfferent groups of expenses. I use red for medical, blue for dental, yellow for school, etc. Then I use colored labels blue for Bobby, Green for Greg and Red for me. the colored filed folders help me with quick filing and the colored label helps me locate at a glance the person's folder I am looking for.
