Get Creative With Your Action Files

Action files are those files which you refer to on a daily basis. They include files for "bills to pay", "calls to make", "letters to write", and "pending". My action files are kept in a rectangular stand-up file that sits on top of my desk with my pastel colored Pendaflex files inside (labeled, of course).

I came across this creative way of displaying your action files and wanted to share it with you. If you have the wall space in your working area, you might want to try this fabulous idea from Martha Stewart Living Magazine.

Start with four to six basic wooden clipboards. Cover each clipboard with a different decorative paper or wallpaper sample using decoupage glue. Smooth out any bubbles or uneven surfaces and cover the top with more decoupage glue.

Label each of the metal clips with your action file heading, hang them on the wall as you would picture frames, and you're good to go. I love this idea!
