What's the deal with active files? Aren't files just files? Not a chance! Active files are those great reminder files that always stay within reach and are accessed on a daily/weekly basis...
Some common categories for active files are: Bills To Pay, To Read, To File, Response Needed, etc. We like to use this clear wall pocket from Stak-A-File. What's best is that it affixes to the wall to save prime real estate on your desktop. Because the files are out and about in a clear wall pocket, there's an opportunity for creativity. You can get started with your own flair using file folders like these from Cavallini & Company.
For more cool file folders, check these out: Charcoal Toile File Folders, Andy Warhol Inspired Happy Butterfly Day File Folders, and Scandinavian Modern File Folders
