Here’s what I’m doing
Cost of expensive ink for printer that I have to buy anyway: $18 x 4 colors = $72
2 packs of sharpies = $16.58
4 packs of file folders = $23.96
1 pack of banker’s boxes = $12.99
3 packs of hanging folders = $18.87
Total before tax: $72.40
400 file folders? Yeah. I use them a lot and I’m trying to archive all my old files. And the 300 hanging folders will be more than enough.
24 Sharpies? Yep. First of all, black Sharpies are awesome. They’re great for file folders, bankers boxes, labeling toiletries for summer camp, marking food in a shared dorm, making signs… lots of stuff. I keep a good stash of sharpies and should throw out the dried out ones.
MORE banker’s boxes? Sure, why not? Do you have kid’s toys that you’d like to put away to reduce clutter? Need storage for all those files you’re purging? I used the boxes in my office to hold old files, papers, school artwork and memorabilia. You can also store books, crafts, dog toys, emergency supplies, birthday presents and kitchen dishes.
