Everything in its Place: Smead Products Help You Get More Organized

Looking to become more organized in the upcoming new year?  If so, a trip to is in order.  Whether you're looking to organize family financial files or creating files for your home office, Smead products are sure to be ideal in helping you get more organized.  

We have a five-drawer file cabinet and I use it to keep the Three Boys and an Old Lady household organized.  Hubby and I use one drawer to store all our receipts so we can keep them organized and sorted for our accountant during tax season.  I have a drawer for each of the kids in which I keep up with stuff for school.  The folders can get a bit weighted with all the paper we collect over the year so it's important to have a heavy duty hanging file folder that won't cripple from the all the "important" stuff we save.  Smead folders fit the bill.

Smead is a name I trust.  Smead folders are the same folders used in my dad's office when I was a kid and they're the same folders used in my office.  Quality.  Dependable.  Trusted brand.  

I received Smead FasTab hanging file foldersSuperTab Heavyweight Folders and Easy Grip Expanding Pocket folders for review. I know you're probably thinking hanging folders are just hanging folders right?  WRONG!  Smead has put a new spin on their products and incorporated some fab features.  

Take the FasTab Hanging Folders have built-in tabs.  Somewhere there's a person reading this post right who really appreciates no longer having to slide the teeny weeny slips of perforated paper into those little plastic sleeves using the paper clip.  *SMILE*  

FasTab hanging folders have sturdy tabs that you can either write on or use the enclosed label sheet to print labels using your printer.  Smead FasTab hanging folders come with a larger label print area so your labels will be easier to read.  No more squinting!

I love the SuperTab Heavyweight Folders.  The writing space is nearly 90% larger than other folders and these folders aren't flimsy like some other "heavyweight" folders.  Smead SuperTab Heavyweight folders really are sturdy.

However, the fave product in our home are the Smead Easy Grip Pocket Folders.  These are perfect for securing papers and making sure they stay in place and the ribbed grip area allows for a more secure grip.  You have to see the Smead Easy Grip Pocket Folder and another expandable folder side by side to really appreciate how neat this unique feature is.  When you retrieve other expandable folders you may find the folder slipping between your fingers but that's not the case with the Smead Easy Grip Pocket folder.  You have some texture to grip on to and therefore lessen the chance of dropping your folder.  Oh, and the kids love them because the folders are perfect for carrying homework, toys and stuff...lots of stuff.

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
