A few weeks ago I showed you one way I use my Iris open top filing boxes.
Today I am showing another, which is using them to rein in unruly filing drawers.
I have several filing areas in my classroom. The one that I open the most is in a drawer of my desk. I store some of my most-used files in there.
Unfortunately, the force of pulling this drawer opens often displaces the files, spreading them out and often unhooking several of them.
However, you can change this with the file box. Just place the box in the file drawer, and put the files in the box. Voila! Suddenly, the files are contained and better-supported.
Even the force of opening and closing the drawer doesn’t move them. The great thing is that the box fits in the drawer and closes just fine – the plastic box doesn’t catch or drag at all.
Even better, you can even add a few more files between the box and the front of the drawer, if needed, and the box holds the files nicely in place.
