Rated 5 out of 5 by from organized! bought this for my receipts. i thought i had another management system before... and i could save myself the money from buying one of these little accordion files. but turns out, these accordion files are still the best for receipt management. and the one from container store is well made and offers plenty of room to store your monthly accumulation of those small slips of paper. recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a Tax Season Dream! This file folder is a dream for tax season! I went and bought one for every year, even for a few past years! Everything is perfectly organized and so easy to go through. We all hate tax season bit this made it much simpler. Thanks Container Store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from School Profolio I use the larger 13 pocket file to hold my children's graded work from their teachers. I label each month with the tabs provided and in the paper goes. No more piles on the kitchen table! They can see how they have improved throughout the year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So neat now! I particularly like that this file expands all the way at top and bottom. Also that it is short enough to fit in a desk drawer. Now I have two for receipts, bills, etc. You can adapt it to whatever use you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have I keep a rolling twelve months of all my receipts. It's a great way to find receipts of recent purchases in one spot. Sometimes you may need to go back further to find a old receipt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coupon organizer I purchased this item to try to organize my coupons but does not expand enough to hold all that I have. Would be ok to use if you don't keep many coupons on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solves the Problem This is a great way to store paper for the tax season. I have one for contributions, another for expenses, and another for my policies. It may not be as "pretty," but it solves the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So simply awesome These things are great! I had my files all over the place in different folders and such and this trims it down to one convenient location. Surprisingly expandable, it was able to fit all of my current records. I ended up getting one for my guy afterwards and he loves it- cut down a whole box of papers out of our house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased this to organize receipts. I replaced a broken one that was made of a heavyweight paper. I have had this for several months and it has held up well. I like that there are tabs which you can mark each to better organize the separate areas. This fits well in a drawer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product - not found anywhere else This product is great for organizing paperwork for each year. You can sort each year for example by medical, dental, tax stuff, car stuff, receipts, etc.... Then at the end of the year, you have all of the stuff you would need for tax prep time AND you have all of your stuff from that year in one spot. You can get rid of the documents that you don't need anymore, close up the folder, and put it on your shelf or in your closet for easy reference should you need it. An awesome way to stay organized AND corral all of that paperwork that somehow creeps into the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it The main thing I like about this product is that the bottom of the organizer is not restricted from expansion like all the other similar products I have seen. The outer shell for this type of organizer usually wraps around the bottom so that you are limited to about an inch or inch and a half of space. With this organizer you can expand up to a foot or more so it'll be of great help when organizing. Product also looks and feels like better quality than most alternatives. I'm happy with the purchase. Also I got it for $3.99 during office sale, which is a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accordion Files are Great!! This is such a great product to organize anything. The compartments are very large and the way to folder spreads out makes it so easy to put items in the right slot. The tabs are easy to see so you go right to the slot you need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks and Feels Expensive This is another great, quality product from Container Store! It looks and feels expensive. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful File! This file is perfect for storing monthly receipts. The ones we've had in the past did not expand on the bottom as well as the top and we could barely close them by the end of December. You just can't beat the ease of use and the price of this item. Would recommend to anyone.

Community Q&A

Is the bottom of each section sealed?

In the past, I have found that the accordion files where the plastic sections are not sealed or connected at the bottom, cause small things to slide underneath the section and end up lodged elsewhere. Is that the case?
Asked by: DJLadyA
These are not sealed/connected at the bottom.

How does the file stay closed?

I like the fact that this file expands from both the top and the bottom, but it's not clear from the photo how it closes. Is there an elastic strap that goes around it like most accordion files? If so, will it still close when the file is expanded?
Asked by: LaurRne14
Yes, the 13-Pocket Accordion Files each have an elastic strap and front button closure similar to most accordion files.
