    I have no idea if this is any help, but I remembered this thread (I think it was this one).

    You might try searching on other keywords surrounding your question.

    Good luck.

        you do agree however that the price is nothing the same as in the USA.
        $4 per 100
        or €18 per 100

        but thanks anyway for pointing me to
        think I will try these. Now I only need to find a filing cabinet or a filing box.

        (suggestion for a filing box Bernard ? )

          Aspvik from Ikea

          Hi Senol,

          I use the Aspvik from Ikea

          It is made for hanging folders, but if you just remove the bars then it is an excellent kabinet for storing your reference material.
          I use the top drawer with hanging folders for my tickler files
          the bottom two are for reference material.

            I use what they call 'binnenmappen'. You can get them here. They are the closest to manilla folders I could find. I have bee using those for 5 years now.

              I'm curious, what is used in other countries if not manila file folders? Is there some other common 'standard' thing? They're taken for granted here, in my eyes.

                Manila folders in Norway

                I was lucky that we have a good office supply lady at work who managed to find manila folders from our supplier...

                I got many strange looks the day I carted a filing cabinet in to my office when I started with GTD (2 months ago), but that was nothing compared to their shock upon seeing my manila folders! haha

                Manila folders are as common as apple pie where I come from, but Everybody uses hanging folders here in Norway.

                I get mine from where they are called "vertikalmappe" A4 POS. 1 are the standard ones with the tab on the left, POS. 2 for middle tab, POS. 3 for right tab. They come in boxes of 100.

                Hope this helps anyone else looking
