Filing infrastructure are the containers and gadgets that contain files and things. See below for a couple of ideas (and I am sure you’ll find more at Officeworks)
Most of my customers inherit a filing cabinet from somewhere and start using it, never asking themselves whether it’s the right system for their personality and their type of files.
Ask yourself whether you are a “chucker” or a “tucker”. Chuckers love suspension filing, just open a drawer and fling it in. Tuckers love lever arch files, punching holes and tucking everything nicely away.
Some files are better contained in binders; some are easier accessible in Manila folders. Ask yourself and make a conscious decision. And don’t put the benchmark too high. Just because you like the look of lever arch folders on a shelf, all nicely labeled and colour coded doesn’t mean you can maintain them. Did you know it’s 7 separate steps to file something in a lever arch folder compared to 3 for suspension filing? Choose a system that you can maintain. There is no point in rows of beautiful folders from kikki-K that are empty on a shelf with piles of paper the size of my oldest son (1.79) on your desk.
