Freedom Filer Update

As promised on my previous post here, today’s post is to update you on my experience with my new filing system, Freedom Filer.

Here are five things I like about it:

  1. Different colored labels by category. 
Why:  Makes it easy to remember where the file is that you are looking for.

  1. Pre-printed labels
Why:  Saved me the step of having to type and print.

  1. Self-purging filing system
Why:  Pretty self explanatory!  The system is designed in a way that it is constantly maintaining itself!

  1. Clutter free desk top
Why:  Because the system is designed so well, filing is no longer a task that I put off until it completely took over my office.

  1. Quick Index Guide
Why:  If I’m not sure of where to file system, included in the instructions is a guide (cheat sheet) that helps me determine quickly where I need to file something.

And now, five things I didn’t like about it:

1.   Initial Set Up

Why:  Time consuming.  But let’s face it, any new filing system would be time consuming.

2.   Ummmmmm….that’s it!

So, would I recommend it, you ask?  ABSOLUTELY!!!!!

Why:  Well, I just gave you five reasons, but if you are still not sure, then run over to and I’m pretty sure you will be sold!

Pssst…Oh yeah, here’s a look at what my file drawers look like now:

Wow, great post! I'm looking for a piece of furniture to shelter my hanging files; yours is perfectly! Where do you have it from?

Greeting from Germany,

Hi Renate!

Thanks for stopping by! So exciting to hear from someone in Germany! I found my piece of furniture from a company called Home Decorators. I checked online for you but it doesn't appear they carry that particular one anymore. However, I did find this one. And this one as well.

Hope this helps!
