Office Toy: the File Jacket

Problem: You’ve got a little flurry of randomly-sized papers related to an upcoming project or event. You don’t want to lose the papers. You want to keep them together; without getting them mixed up with other papers. Some of them might fall out if you put them in a regular folder. And you don’t want to just stack them on your desk.

Solution: the File Jacket.

A file jacket is a file folder with three of its sides sealed shut, so it works like a giant pocket for papers. File jackets are usually made of more durable material than what’s used for regular file folders. They’re made of plastic, or sometimes heavy-duty card stock.

You can re-use file jackets. A lot.

Awww… don’t those little random papers look cute, all snuggled together in there?
