Rated 5 out of 5Â by CaliforniaMtnMom Best Filing System Ever!
I love this, I have even "gone digital" with it by naming my computer file directories the same as the paper labels that come with the system. Birth certificates, etc, need to be stored paper, but all else I scan in. The beauty of this system is the INDEX book. Before I would file something like a birth certificate in Important Papers, while my husband would store them under the person's name. Car insurance? I'd put it under the "car file" and he would file under "Insurance". The INDEX book clearly has a place for each thing and tells where - problem solved. My favorite gift for Graduation!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mollybea Believe this will be a good system
I haven't used yet. I'm waiting for some folders to come in but looking it over, believe it'll work great for what I need. I think I will have to make a few modifications, and there are some categories which I don't need.

After using this system for many, many years I still love it. So much, that although I never write reviews, I am going to the trouble to do so now. This is a go to college graduation gift for me when I need one for someone graduating.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ThereAreWorseAddictions Best Money Spent
I have spent a lot of money on organizational tools and this, by far, is the best money spent. It contains a book and a pamphlet in alphabetic order that helps you arrange and retrieve your paperwork. It includes labels that I did not use, I used my label maker instead. You purchase the hanging file folders and interior folder separately so the booklet is just that but if you take the time to set up your files with this system, you will be able to quickly find your things; the color coding is particularly helpful. Seriously saves time searching for paperwork. AWESOME product!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by woodlands I have had mine for 20 years!!!
I bought this filing system years ago, feels like I have used it forever and I love it. Makes life so easy...each time I need something, I know exactly where to look for it in my file drawer. Just bought this one for my daughter who just bought a new house. I know she will love it too.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kellietag FIle Solutions gave me inspiration to "File"
I have tried to start organizing my papers and keeping them filed in order. I just never knew where to start. This product took the category decisions away and made it easier. I just followed the directions in the book and used the given tabs. A week later #only an hour or so a night# and I was ORGANIZED!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NotYourMomsMinivan Great file organization system!
I discovered this product a few years ago while watching a home organizaiton show. Since that time I have been using the file system and my files have never been more organized! It's an easy system to use, and great for finding those pesky documents that might have normally gotten lost in a "to file" pile. Thanks for providing such a fantastic product!

I have used this system for YEARS. It is well worth the money. Since setting it up, I have moved eight times, had three kids, bought and sold four houses and I can still put my hands on important things like passports and mundane things like water bills in record speed.

I am in the process of setting up my filing system. I bought this because a friend recommended it to me a few years ago and I'm excited to get to use it. I like being able to find anything I need and now my files will be better organized. The reference guide will make it easy for me to find things quickly.

I've lost count of the number of this filing system I've ordered for family and friends. It's the easiest, most user-friendly filing system I can image. They've thought of everything and more!
My filing drawer was a mess before I found and implemented this system. You can't go wrong with it!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TeaKay The Perfect Solution
As my parents age and I take on their paperwork along with my own I needed a tried and true organization method and this fit the bill. It is very easy to use, makes sense and makes it easy for myself or others to locate important information.
This basic system quickly gets you organized and helps you purge the information you really don't need. The guidelines are so easy to understand that you could add categories very easily, although so far I haven't discovered one.
As I complete the system for myself and my parents I plan to pass it on to my children so they too can organize their important information and at the same time understand how to locate mine.

This is a great starter system. Yes, it looks basic, but sometimes we overcomplicate simple organization.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Scarlet A little dated
Purchased this product only because I was confused and thought it was the freedom filer but when I opened it I was a little disappointed because everything in there looked like the something printed in the 80's . I took it back to the store and they were nice enough to give me a full refund. I ended buying $200.00 worth of other stuff. I love the container store in general. Great Stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rezina Best Product Ever! Thank You Container Store
I purchased the file solutions for my daughter to help her better organize her important papers. I really like this myself and I am quite impressed on how easy it helps someone that isn't so sure of where to file personal papers and etc. My daughter loves usng this and has helped her in more ways to be better organized. If it's filed in the correct place, it's always a cinch to find whatever so much easier and faster. Thank you Container Store for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LAXMOM86 One of my favorite Container Store purchases
I bought File Solutions close to 20 years ago and I still use it! Any time one of my children needs a copy of his/her birth certificate, I can go straight to my file and find it with ease. It is one of the smartest purchases I've ever made-along with my Elfa closets. And thank you for finally getting to Raleigh! I'd been waiting....

Rated 5 out of 5Â by convertedtoorganization amazing for beginners
When I had to start managing my own finances (bills, etc) and my mom said to me... here are all these really important documents... DONT LOOSE THEM!.... (birth certificate, ss card, passport) I had no clue what to do. This system has been amazing! It also provides wonderful hints- like only keep a copy of your passport in section X, but the actual passport in a safe. It not only gives you those types of hints, but with growing up with the internet-- I am use to electronic everything and I never thought in a million years that I should keep a hard copy of any of my bills. BUT... since there was a file for it... I did it and BOY and it come in handy with tracking and proving what I paid. I highly recommend this system for anyone finally being given their important documents or is managing their own finances. It is not only great for organization, but learning what documents are important & what can be shredded. I am so happy to have found this filing system 5 years ago.... and I am still going strong (even though I usually put a stack on top and then file once a month, which works out great since most bills are monthly). I couldn't say more great things about this product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by nonicknameme Love it!
I've used this system for years. I was always stymied in setting up a filing system by trying to figure out what the categories should be. Left to my own devices I would have a file for the first page of the mortgage, one for the second page and so on. I spent a happy rainy day organizing all my paper into the categories suggested by this system and can find everything. I love it, I love it, I love it. I recommend it to anyone who talks to me about setting up a home filing system, and I've bought systems for my young adult children. It took all the "worry work" out of setting up a file system and made it a fun endeavor with a happy ending -- organized paper that can be found the next time you need it.
