It's that time of year again... the dreadful few weeks where I finally decide to tackle my tax return. In the past I've always kept my financial notes in a large hard-covered book, but the result is an amount of heavy and cumbersome journals stuffed in the drawers under the bed. This time around, I decided to go for a lightweight option, and put my financial notes in a slim-line folder. After looking round Staples for a folder suitable for the occasion, I came across the Q-Connect 40 Pocket Display book, which is available in red, blue, or black. Measurements - - - - - - - - - - Featuring a durable plastic cover which measures 31 x 21.5 cms, inside, the sellophane pouches are 30 x 22 cms in size - this means that they will easily fit an A4 sheet of paper, with a few millimeters of extra space around the edges. The transparent pouches (forty in total) are fairly thin, but regular paper slides into them easily, and each pouch can comfortable hold around ten sheets of printer paper before it shows any signs of wrinkling or bulging. Price & Availability - - - - - - - - - - - - The Q-Connect display book costs £2.75 from valuemedia.co.uk, but it can also be picked up from a range of high street stationers for a similar amount. The cover is plain, barring a tiny Q-Connect logo on the back (you don't notice it, as it's the same colour as the cover), and a large removable sticker on the front. Overall, it's a nice looking folder that appears to be professional and businesslike. Final Word - - - - - - - Even when full, the display book is fairly light, and as such, it's easy to carry round without weighing you down. Similarly. It's very slim, and many Q-Connect folders can be placed on top of each other without being squashed. At the end of the day, the Q-Connect display book is a highly functional folder which does the job perfectly. The inner sleeves aren't particularly thick, but they provide your documents with just the right amount of protection, and the low price means that this particular product is a bargain - recommended.
