I am a law student with tons of paperwork that was always cluttering up my desk area. I got this to file my weekly documents like readings, assignments, work things, etc. and to keep certain papers within reach at all times. It works perfectly. I switched out the mint hanging folders for olive green ones that matched my decor better, and they fit fine. I have had a back folder slip off the end if I wasn't careful, but for light organization this works great and looks so much better than my old pile.

Home filing.

By 

from Aurora Colorado

Comments about Smead Colored Hanging File Folders:

What is the skinny fold for? Does it go at the top or bottom of the tab? Do you not fold it and just let it bend with the tab? I'm sure everyone knows this, but I do very little filing and none of the tab inserts seem to have directions.

                These hanging folders are used to file numerous and large amounts of information. They are extremely durable as we have stuffed them beyond maximum capacity and still continue to withstand the pressure applied to them. They get the job done, above and beyond our expectations.

                I am re-organizing my household files. The jewel tones are pleasing colors and assist in setting up categories. I prefer Smead products over "store brand" for quality. The first box I purchased appeared to have been assembled with too much wet glue and some folders were damaged. With one call, Smead addressed my issue quickly and with excellent customer service.

                Comments about Smead Colored Hanging File Folders:

                If it wasn't for the way Smead packaged these hanging folders, this would be a 4-5 star product. Standard packaging from other manufacturers ship their hanging folders flat - as would be common sense. However, Smead is using narrower and taller packaging - resulting in annoyingly stiffly-curved hanging folders that never relax to hang straight.

                  We use these file folders for our daily and long term household files. We color code the files by subject and then file by category (Ex: AUTOMOBILES, 2010 Cadillac DTS, 2015 Mazda 6, FINANCIAL INFO, Banks, Credit Cards, MEDICAL INFO,
                  Diagnosis, Physicians, Prescriptions).

                  The files are sturdy and colorful compared to other files we have used. They make our files very organized and easy to use.

                    These hanging folders are very durable. I use them for all sorts of filing, but the number one thing that I use them for are the filing of SOP's and SOP record books. Even with the record books being a bit heavy, the hanging folders still hold up fantastically. I am pulling the files on and off and they are still holding up. I have no complaints at all about this product. I think it is a great product!!!

                          I am a classroom teacher and I use them for file storage. As a teacher, I am tired of the BORING green hanging folders!!! These are nice, yet professional colors for my classroom!
