“ Brand: Ryman / Type: Pockets / Plastic sleeves / Size: A3 „
Now at the start of 2013, I tried to be really organised so I got a new folder for organising all my bills (even though each month there always seems to be an unexpected one!) and so at the time had purchased a few from WHSmith. However, since I closed my natwest account, I had to do a re-jig of my finances so since we had a box of 200 plastic pockets at work that my manager didn't need, he said I could borrow a few!
The file pockets are the usual type, made of thin plastic, which is very glossy and transparent, so it holds all my papers in so I can still see them and, makes my papers inside look very sleek, shiny and well protected. There are holes down the left hand side, 4 cylindrical holes, which if you have a folder, then the binder fits through so the file pockets, so it can be flicked through. It says in small font writing Ryman vertically down the side of the pockets also. I usually use these for holding some of my daughter's homework (I know, she's only 4!) so it doesn't get all grubby when she takes her projects in on the monday, and if I have a load of papers I need to eventually sit down and sort through, I shove them all in a plastic pocket!
Personally, I think these pockets are brilliant and do the job just perfect. I can fit in one pocket loads of sheets of paper like bank statements etc comfortably, with some receipts and it does not bulge or look overstretched. I am able to put labels on them and they stick easily and so I am able to organise my papers effectively. To buy them, they come in quite expensive, as a pack of 10 costs £4.31 so effectively 4.31p per pocket! I probably wouldn't have paid this price out of my own pockets, but since I got them free from work I really won't grumble as they do the job fantastically!
