File Folders: Declare That You Are Organized (or Not)

file folder that says: I am organized

I've just stumbled across a series of file folders that specifically talk to our desire to be organized.

1. Crane & Co. sells the file folder shown above; in case you can't quite read the print, it says I am Organized. Update on Feb. 15, 2010: This product is no longer available from Crane & Co.

2. And here's the file folders for those who can't yet claim to be organized, created by Bob's Your Uncle and sold many places on-line. Update on Sept. 19, 2011: I'm no longer finding any place that has these.

3. And for those trying to get organized, here's a set of letterpress procrastinator file folders, labeled with priorities ranging from Urgent to Much Later to Really, Never! OK, I don't know how practical these are - but I had to share them, anyway. Update on Sept. 19, 2011: I'm no longer finding these file folders.

4. Along the same lines, these letterpress file folders range in priority from Yesterday to Next Week to Who Knows. Update on Oct. 8, 2012: I'm no longer finding these, either.

The file folders for procrastinators made me laugh. My original filing system consisted of three files: "Do It," "Do It Now," "Do It Now: Emergency!"

Of course, the system has expanded over the years, but I still use those three files!

That's funny, Cynthia - thanks for sharing! As I always tell clients, whatever works for you is just fine.
