Pros: Inexpensive and durable

Cons: none

The Bottom Line: Rolodex will amaze you at how many cards that you have been carrying around in your wallet.

If you are like me then you have a problems with too many business cards and extra credit cards clogging up your wallet. If that is the case then you should purchase one of these Rolodex's by rubber maid. You can purchase one of these from Office Max for only $15.00 and you can find them in blue and pink and silver. This will definitely clean out your wallet or purse and even your desk will look a lot nicer when you start storing your cards in a nice and tidy order.

Description
The rotary business card file stands 5" in height x 6.5" wide, when this is loaded up it will weigh just about two pounds or more. You will be able to store over 400 cards in this card file. There are 200 clear plastic sleeves that are double sided with two open notches at the bottom to allow you to remove them from the rolodex. Each clear sleeve has a piece of thin white cardboard inside that allows you to place a business card on either side. With the two notches located at the top or bottom of the sleeve this makes it easier to install the card inside of the sleeve.

On each side of the rolodex there is a 2 3/8" black plastic knob, that will allow you to turn this to whatever letter of the alphabet that you it to stop at. Whether color that you decide to purchase the alphabetical cards will be that color, the letters are stamped in white ink at the outer edge of the separator cards, to make it better to see where to stop spinning the card file.
The frame is made of a solid piece of metal, that will hold the two knobs and a bar that will hold all of the sleeves. This frame will match whatever color of dividers that you decide to purchase.

Experience
It may not seem like you have a lot of cards lying around until you start to put them all in one spot. But, the main reason that I purchased this, was because my wallet was just a catchall for all of those important business cards that everyone gives me when I meet them. I also have a problem with too many credit cards that I only use once in a while. With this sitting on my desk it makes it a lot easier to just roll this around to whatever name that I need. I usually put the business cards in the front of the proper letter and the credit cards to the back of the appropriate letter.

This allows me to thin out my wallet an makes my pants look a lot better. There is nothing worse than sitting through a whole show or a formal dinner with a bulge that is poking your behind the whole time. You will be able to cut your wallet in half when you remove all of those extra business cards and those once in a while credit cards.

I used to worry about not having that proper credit card with me on a spur of the moment but if you think about it before you go out then all you have to do is go to the rolodex and grab the right card. Once you get home you can replace in the file very easily. Once you get done loading up your new rolodex, take a step back and look at how many of those cards that you were carrying around with you that you did not have to  carry around all the time.

Conclusion
They have come out with a software for your computer but this usually will need to be a 32 bit system but mine is a 64 bit system and the software for that is very expensive. For as much as I use this, it is not worth the money to spend on the software. Maybe once a week I will flip through this card rolodex, and that is when I realize how much space that this has saved me in my wallet.  Five stars for this Rolodex.
