How can I reuse or recycle hanging files?
Over the last week or so, we’ve had just about a bazillion (ok, about 130) brilliant comments and suggestions from Gulia (thanks Gulia!) and if that wasn’t enough, she’s also sent a clever idea over too for something we haven’t featured yet:
I take hanging file folder and straighten it . Then I glue on it a poster, picture , interesting fabric or a group of photographs.
Finally, I knock two nails into a wall, and hang my creation with plastic edges that stick out.
My last-but-one place of work used to have loads of suspension files, well, hanging about which wouldn’t be used again because they were the wrong size for all our filing cabinets – and I’m sure they’re is far from unique, so this is a great idea to use them up. Sticking in the office environment, you could glue/staple large corner mounts on it and use it as a pin-free noticeboard.
Any other suggestions of things to do with them?
