Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous and Efficient I own two of these great looking accordions. I have one for the specifically for the bills for our house and the other one for work. I was impressed by the high quality, that I can expand it while in use and collapse it to save space when I am done. I am not a fan of filing but the colorful accordion makes me want to file and stay organized! I use a clear label from my label maker on the tabs for categories that are specific to me. Since the bottom is attached to the sections I no longer worry about paper getting trapped at the bottom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unusual use We were looking for something to organize my granddaughter's backpack. It was a jumble of papers and forms. The system had to be lightweight with labeling capability. The large clear accordion file was perfect. We cut off the cover flap and she labeled the sections by school subject and has a perfect organizer. I had looked on line for a solution and all I found was backpack travel-type organizers. I had purchased one of these files for home office use. We took the backpack with us to see if the organizer would fit easily and it did. No more crumpled lost items!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Useful This organizer is just what you need to organize those annoying receipts that you know you need to save but do not want to keep track of. This organizer is easy to use, functional, and small enough to fit in a drawer. This is an amazing find!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Receipts I am a very organized person and iI keep receipts to EVERY item I purchase. This item helped me to keep them in order. Just wish they would include labels that we can personalize and type on instead of write.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super functional and cute! I purchased the small accordion file to keep track of my monthly receipts. This accordion is the best one I've found and I've been through several. It stands open once you fully expand it. It's study and I love the colors. Definately a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great file folder I own many expanding file folders, both cheaper and more expensive. I love this folder because it expands nicely, is great quality, can stand on my desk when expanded, and is visually very pleasing (I love the rainbow colors). I was able to add a label to the spine and one to the front. Also, I like that it came with stickers to label the sections instead of those pieces of paper that always fall out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Mobile Workers Best Friend This accordion has made my life so much easier! I work from home 2 days a week and was constantly trying to keep all of my project files organized, trying to remember which ones had to go home with me. Now I keep every project I am working on in this file, which stands up independently when I am working at my desk, but collapses when I need to take it with me. It's a desk top organizer and a mobile organizer in one! LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pefect! I use this almost daily. It is perfect for filing away my receipts. I love the durable polypropylene - I got this almost 2 years ago and it's still going strong! Since it expands, it is plenty big enough to hold everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for storing receipts I shop a lot and so I have a lot of receipts. I like to keep receipts for insurance reasons, and in case I need to return something. These make them so easy to store and organize. Each section is a month. I think the clear file with the colored tabs is nice-looking, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Annual Purchase I buy one of these each year to keep myself organized. They are conveniently compact for storing in small places.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Kids' School Organization I purchased this for my son who was having a hard ime keeping his papers/notebooks organized and in one place. I labeled the pockets for each subject and he's been able to keep everything in one place. Teacher sent me a note and said this was definitely a helpful tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storage needs met with this product! I have been buying 2 of these file folder each year for several years now. I use one for household receipts and bills for one year, while the other I use to keep scrapbooking items in for safe keeping until I have time to scrapbook. I like the expanding bottom and the over the top flap to keep out dust and little fingers from my kiddos. It is small enough to not be in the way (like a file cabinet can be) if your office is in your kitchen like mine is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the other receipt file products on TCS I've bought several types of receipt file organizers from TCS and this one is hands down the best one out of all of them. Enough pockets that it makes sense when organizing your receipts (others only had 3-4 pockets, which wasn't enough for me)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for coupons I use it just for Copons. I have one for grocery's and another for cleaning supplies, soap, etc.
Date published: 2012-04-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Multifunctional Originally I bought both of these for receipts, but decided to use the smaller one for coupons instead. This purchase was very helpful as now I have a place for monthly receipts, which is beneficial at tax time and the smaller one keeps coupons so I don't waste time searching for where I stuck them. This has brought great peace to my life as I know when I go to find a receipt or coupon, I know exactly where to search...priceless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for coupons! Bought this for organizing coupons and it works great! Now we can organize all of our coupons. Makes grocery shopping quicker and easier! Just wish I would have got this sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organized, finally! Ya know how you *try* to keep things in file folders, and then, when you go looking for stuff around tax-time, you either cannot find the folder, or it turns up empty? Well, this is the perfect solution! Everything is contained within this multi-pocket system. It keeps things where they need to be, so you can find them later and access important tax information. That's what I've been using it for, and I couldn't be happier!
Date published: 2012-03-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coupons are Organized! I used to carry around a plastic ziplock with my coupons...which generally meant that I forgot about them in the stores. Now I can organize every one by store or function. It makes grocery shopping much easier.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not tough enough I bought this accordion file to use day to day in my mobile office. Unfortunately, it was just not sturdy enough for my wear and tear. The elastic closure stretched out and then eventually broke. I'm still using it as a filing aid at home, but I've had to find something else for daily use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item! I use this product to organize my business receipts on a monthly basis. I love the band to wrap around. Great for Business needs to keep things seperate & makes things alot easier at tax time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tame the paper tiger! I'm a "piler" filer -- I spend hours stacking things into piles that then get reshuffled when I need to clear the space for something else. The letter size solved that problem for at least my pending piles...I keep stuff neatly tucked away by month until I need it. No more piling and re-piling!
Date published: 2012-03-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice! These fit a lot of papers. I use the letter sized one to organize bills and it works well. i like that it's color coded. It looks good and is easy to find things!

Archival quality?

Hi, I want to use these to store my kids' school work - is the quality such that it will protect the paper for the long haul? Or do you have another product that does? Thank you!
Asked by: HeatherGriz
The polypropylene material of our 13-Pocket Accordion Files is naturally acid-free and archival. For other archival-quality storage options, consider our Archival Boxes.

Do the dividers attach to the bottom?

Interested to know if there is a gap between the divers and the bottom of the file where smaller papers may slide around or get stuck.
Asked by: ShadowSync
Yes, the dividers are attached to the bottom of the file to keep the contents from migrating to a neighboring section.

Can the individual file folders be removed to examine the contents and then replaced?

Asked by: Gretelgirl
Our 13-Pocket Accordion Letter File is a single unit with 13 conjoined expanding pockets. Letter-size Interior file folders (sold separately) may be added if desired so the contents of each pocket are more easily removed for examination and replaced for storage.
