Saving $50 Grand by Switching the Color of Folders?

The Cascade County Office of Public Assistance recently switched their filing system to less expensive, brown manila folders. In doing so, they saved a great deal of money.

Let's get our head around this one. By switching to less expensive folders, the State saved FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS.

How many other simple steps could we take to more efficiently utilize our resources? This is a great example of public employees treating their allocated dollars like they would treat their own. We need to encourage this kind of thinking.
