Tickler File Labels

File folders

I’ve written before about how a tickler file system can help you become more organized with hardcopy mail and documents that you’d like to see in the future, but don’t need on your desk right now.

To make it easier to create a tickler file system, here’s a printable PDF (2 pages) of tickler file labels, sized for Avery 5160 standard mailing labels.

Note: I’ve also included two other labels:

  • BILT, which stands for “Before I Leave Today”
  • To Sign – a great folder to keep outside your office for signature-only items

Enjoy, and please send me any feedback or suggestions.

Problem is, plastic (not hanging) tickler files are nowhere to by.

I recommend using cheap manilla file folders and keeping them in a standing or hanging file. I don’t think the kind of plastic folders in the illustration really exist :)
