As part of my series about Time Management and Organization I am happy to announce the review of the [IN] Place System by Peter Walsh. I will also be reading his book Enough Already!: Clearing Mental Clutter to Become the Best You and will have a review of this book written at a later date.
First I must say I love anything to do with stationery, file folders and binders! I am addicted to being organized, keeping track of my filing and all that sort of “dorky” stuff. I am at home in the stationery aisle of any store. When asked to review the [IN] Place System by Peter Walsh I was super excited. I was even more excited when I opened the box to find all the items.
The first thing that popped out to me was an erasable permanent marker. No more trying to find tabs when I want to rename a file folder, simply use the [IN] Place Systems’ Erasable marker with clip tabs. Due to this marker being made of permanent ink – there will be no smudges! This makes life so much easier. Simply write on the clip tab, attach to your binder or folder and voila you can change it up as needed because the marker is erasable.
Next item I found very useful was the Expanding File. This is made of a nice hard but flexible material and can hold a lot of paperwork. This is a must for me, because as a virtual assistant I often have many contracts, service proposals and client detail sheets to file.
The durable file folders and document envelopes are also a must have for any business professional. When meeting with a client I can now bring their information, my welcome package and other documents in a stylish, durable folder which can be re-used for my next meeting.
This fantastic system to help keep your office more organized is available at Office Max:
This system is just so super! You will have more space, be more organized and in turn be more productive! You can hold a lot more in a smaller space with the [IN] Place System by Peter Walsh and to top it all off – it’s affordable!
I didn’t find any cons with this system personally, it really fits my work at home style and has allowed me to upgrade my filing system in a way that creates more time and has released my stress – now I know where things are and can grab them when I need them. No more sifting through huge, bulky file folders for my paperwork!
Make it a happy day!
