Tickler File System | Printable Tickler File Tabs | Digital Download | by Life’s Lists


Instant Digital Download

I created this Instant Tickler System with pre-labeled printable filing tabs, working as a professional organizer for over 15 years, to help my clients take the thought out of where their paper should go. Simply print the tabs (white card stock suggested), insert them in hanging files and you are ready to start filing!

What is a tickler file? It is a set of folders, easily reachable, that you can access information quickly and file common papers away for reference or action. You can set up a tickler file anywhere that is easy to reach. In a file drawer, in a desktop file box, in a portable cardboard or plastic file box.

There are 5 different systems that can be used independently or as part of your filing system: Quick Portable File Tabs, Action & Productivity Tabs, A-Z tabs, Monthly Tabs and Daily tabs. Use this system with hanging files and 1/5 cut (2" x .5") clear hanging file tabs, available where most office supplies are sold.

This system is great if you want to manage daily papers and the tasks that result from them. I also included the Quick Portable File Tabs because I find them a great way to set up a fast file system for your most important documents.

matched description and quality seems nice!

Although I only felt the item was 3 stars after the fact that I was immediately contacted to discuss what make the experience better and how the seller could help me. I really appreciate the effort and time the seller gave to assist me directly. Definitely worth it!
