Bankers Box Mail in Rebate: last chance to get cash back with purchase.

Download Bankers Box Mail in RebateAlong with the usual vows to eat less and exercise more, my New Year’s Resolution is to be more organized in 2013.  My first target is my filing system. One of the best ways to bring some order to a system is shift old file folders into file storage boxes. Using file boxes to create an in-office archive frees up file cabinet space and protects important documents.

We offered tips on adding file storage space  with file boxes last month. This is the perfect time to tackle the project, and not just because of the industrious fever of the new year. These are the last days to take advantage of the Bankers Box mail in rebate for cash back on file box purchases. Free money — the best type of positive reinforcement! So download your rebate today and reward yourself for getting organized in 2013.

3 Tips for choosing file storage boxes for archiving documents.

Archiving documents with Bankers Box file storage boxes.File storage boxes are a great way to free up space in your file cabinets and archive documents you don’t need to consult every day, but can’t throw away. You need to think about 3 things when choosing your file:

  1. How much you need to store
  2. What types of items are you storing.
  3. Where you’ll keep your file boxes.

We’ve got a detailed buying guide up at, but here are a few basic guidelines.

Metal Storage Boxes

Metal storage boxes are extremely durable and lockable. They are the best choice for secure storage of sensitive documents.

Plastic File Boxes

Plastic file boxes are the best choice for transporting documents. Plastic boxes are also moisture resistant, so they are great for archiving & protecting documents in less than ideal environments, such as garages.

Cardboard Boxes

Cardboard file boxes are the most common, inexpensive and versatile option for archiving files. You can get them in are range of strengths  so you can store a little or a lot. You can also choose from a range of lid closure styles depending on how often you need to get at your stored documents. You can find more information on cardboard & other file box styles here.


“Going Green” in the Office

We’ve all heard the “Going Green” initiative, especially when it comes to buying consumer products.  Well at my college of choice (Georgia Tech!) a lot of new construction is going on that also follows these eco-friendly standards.

Our new College of Computing building, the Klaus building, is a giant LEED certified “sustainable” building that has turned heads in the industry.

In an effort to produce more environmentally sound goods, many companies are going “green,” or making new products that use more renewable and recycled resources and less raw materials.

Well, if you run a company and are looking to jump on the “green” bandwagon, there are products out there that you can use to further your office efficiency in a more environmentally palatable manner. Many of these products are more economical as well, resulting in lower costs and more efficient use in your office.

For example, Quality Park Products has introduced their Park Preserve, line of products:
“Providing a sustainable product line featuring shipping containers that become reusable and highly desirable letter size File Boxes for business or home use.”

What company’s office, or someone’s home office, doesn’t need file boxes for one reason or another?  I can’t certainly think of one, and filing my documents in my room amidst all of the college clutter is essential to me being organized and avoiding any party spills damaging important homework assignments, old quizzes, or notes from class.

For easy file storage and organization, and to seek to make the products you use more environment-friendly, try out these “Park Preserve” products. They are all made out of recycled envelopes, reducing the amount of new paper/cardboard goods that need to be produced from raw materials.

Well, I have to move on to more of the usual, but I hope these tips help!
