Rated 5 out of 5 by How I Organize my Classroom I use colored file folders to help keep my lessons, student worksheets, etc. organized. When you open my file drawers you will notice how color coded they are. Red file folders-Reading (because the words read & red are close in spelling) Orange file folders-Grammar/Writing (orange is close to red) Pink file folders-Spelling/Phonics (pink is another form of red) Yellow file folders-Math (it was a color left over) Green file folders-Science (I think of science associated with life and green) Blue file folders-Social Studies (I think of the blue earth & people around the world with blue) Gray file folders-Homework. (since homework covers all of the subjects, I picked gray as a neutral color) It is great to have my files like this so that I can go right to the subject & know where to find things! I also use a lot of folders for my classroom file folder center activities. I use the same color code for the files so the students know what subject they are-it helps to keep them organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great file! This file can hold much more paperwork than you think-- excellent for any business! December 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Joy of Filing With Blue Our department at work has 3 colors of folders, but blue has always been my favorite. I like the way the folders look in the hanging files. They are easy to label and are thick enough to stand up straight for easy access. Even when I have to look back several years to find something that has been filed, I can easily see what month that I need, I have been using this brand of folder for 19 years and I have always been pleased with the quality and durability. I would recommend this folder to anyone who needs to file papers, whether it is at home or at work. November 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Color Great Product I love the color. Makes organizing even more fun when it is color coordinating with everything else :) November 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by In Home Office and traveling I am a very busy Clinical Lead for a pharmaceutical company. I am not only responsible for a large area of the country, but have many projects on a weekly basis. While I have files on my laptop, i am an ORGAINIZING FREAK. I take my files along on the plane, across country and to my meetings. Without Smead file folders, I would be sunk. I choose them over generic brands because they are strong, hold up under horrendous conditions in my briefcase, take a lot of punishment on a plane, taxis, shuttles and in hotels. where I tend to toss them onto the desk. I've tried generic but came back and won't make that mistake again. Thanks for a wonderful, economical product. Kathy Fraiser November 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Organization: One Student at a Time I am a nurse in the school setting and it seemed that student's medical information was filed somewhat haphazardly. It was decided to use the green file folders to organize and file all the students' medical information. I LOVE the folders! It makes it so much easier when I need to look back a couple of school years to research something. Each student has their green folder neatly filed away. There are certain requirements as to how long information is kept and this makes it extremely easy to distinguish the medical information from the student's educational records. I would recommend this product to everyone and being able to get specific colors is also wonderful! November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Filing Systems I have used Smead 1/3 cut file folders for our home filing system for the last 3 years. The tabs are large enough to write on without being to much. I am one to never be afraid of color so when I saw these Red folders on sale I said, "what a great buy and the color was amazing"! That was last year and I've continued since. I've used cheaper brands and they just are not worth it. They tear and are just too thin. Smead brand is well worth the price even if they are regularly priced or on sale. I will never go to any other brand again. I am thinking about getting a different color though, ya know just to switch it up a little...LOL November 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great organizing product for filing system I recommend these file folders to my clients to categorize their filing system since they come in several colors, including bright colors (if they like color-coding). They are sturdy and cost-effective and can be conveniently be picked up at a local office supply store. November 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Colorful Organization I work for a small company (less than 5 employees) and we organize each job by a different color of folder. The assorted jewel tone colors are perfect and add to the selection we already have on hand. November 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I LOVE COLORED FOLDERS I work in a construction office and we use colored folders to organize the massive amounts of paperwork we handle on a daily basis. When we have hundreds of jobs in progress at the same time the colored folders really help us keep the jobs organized by type of job and area. Couldn't imagine having our office organized without colored folders. Would be nice if the folders came pre-sorted! November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by File Folders These folders are great! They're durable, and I love the color! November 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by An organizers dream This product is an organizers dream! This product is functional, but colorful at the same time! Who wants to use those boring tan file folders when Smead has blue ones for an addicted organizer like me to use! A great product to make organizing even more fun! :) November 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Colorful Easy Organizing I bought these folders to use in my classroom. The colors are bright and the folders are sturdy (especially after laminating them for student use). I now have a relatively inexpensive organization method for literacy center activities. The students use the colors to help identify the type of work that they will find inside! The folders work perfectly! November 3, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pretty Purple Planning Great, heavy due 1/3 cut folders in a pretty purple color help me plan and organize my work. And, no papercuts. October 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Takes a licking and keeps on holding I love these files! We have files that are used sometimes for 10 years. They hold up so well!!! Thank you Smead! We love your products. October 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love that Smead! As a retired teacher, I found that colorful, 1/3 cut file folders were (and still are) the perfect solution to categorizing and organizing the multitudes of materials teachers incur. I, personally, have been ever-so-grateful to find a product that makes finding materials so easy to obtain at my fingertips. Thank you, Smead! October 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Folders with Affordable Quality Smead has an excellent line of high quality folders that come in different yet vibrant colors. In our office, projects are coded by color and are heavily used, so having a folder that meets our needs is a must to keeping things organized and trackable. Thanks Smead! October 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Favorite Smead Product My favorite Smead product is the green File Folders. These are my overall favorite product because the are durable, inexpensive, and overall great for organizing. In my experiance of working for one of my favorite teachers, my least favorite task was organizing papers until I purchased the Green Smead file folders and it soon was my favorite because the folders were so durable and lasted for a very long time. With 100 per box each student had there own file and it ended up being so much easier to do my filing. So, when I had the Smead folders I couldn't stop there! Now that teacher has a whole room full of Smead products, and it all started with those file folders! September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Multi-Colored File Folders Help Organize The assorted color file folders have allowed me to organize in several ways. One is that I can make one color a certain category or type to easily find that category. Another is by using the colors in a sequence allows me to search for something that much easier. I am sure there many more ways that I just haven't figured out yet. Great value and multiple uses. Thanks!! September 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Colour These are a good way to keep organized with minimal clutter and fun colours to choose from. September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love organizing With all the technology we have, which is good, I still need to have some things filed away in a cabinet. Assorted colors let me know the categories and the folders have great durability. September 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the red I manage my husband's illustration/design business and I designed my office in red and white and these work perfectly :) September 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Folders Ever! Every year I use and reuse these sturdy folders. I am particularly fond of green since that is our school color. These folders last; students use them in class and even take them home. While I have reused most for going on five years, I always like to buy new ones for the students. Would not be without them! Would not buy another brand either!! September 18, 2013
