Organize Active Paperwork With Post-It Pockets

020409postit-06.jpgIn our swag bag from the LA Organizing Awards on Friday were these Post-it Pockets from (you guessed it--Post-it). Since our organizing style is half hider and half seeker, the Post-it Pockets speak to our seeker side. We've tested these free goodies out for ourself for the active paperwork in our household--see how it turned out after the jump.

We first tried the Post-it Pockets out on our fridge. We just paid all the bills this weekend for the house so we used blank envelopes in place of the statements. Usually, our bills are kept together by a paperclip on our magnetic wire basket (which has come loose on occasion). We quite like the sleeker look of the Post-it Pocket on the fridge and are wishing it came in white.

Next, we took the Post-it Pockets into the office. Currently, our business bills and important paperwork are kept in view by a paperclip on our clear, wall pocket file holder. The system works well for us but again, could it look neater?

We attached the Post-it Pocket to our existing file holder but some of our paperwork was a bit too big to fit comfortably in the Post-it Pocket. We're thinking the letter sized Post-it Pocket on the side of a filing cabinet or even attached to the wall might work better.
