Have you noticed that your history, science, and English binders get rather thick by the second quarter? The hanging file box can solve your problem. The solution is to keep your current unit papers in the front binder pockets, ready to use, but store earlier units either in tabbed sections in your binder or in a hanging box file.
Be sure to paper clip study guides, unit test and quizzes, and your notes together. This way you’ll have your work ready and organized for mid-term and final exams.
Look for a hanging file box that works for you. Color coding helps, too. To make it easy, set up your hanging file system at the beginning of the semester. You’ll be surprised at how this simple organizational tool keeps your papers organized.
Note: When you have a big research paper, use the hanging file to store your work in progress.
