Default Acid Free Paper Storage?

I have started organizing my paper (mostly 8 1/2x11 cardstock) in the Cropper Hopper Class Tote on the heavy duty workstation. I bought the 12x12 hanging file folders which happen to be acid free, but want to group together some of my less used colors within a hanging folder with regular file folders folders.

Do I need to hunt down acid free file folders now too or are regular file folders okay?

Thanks in advance for your help! I tried searching, but got a gazillion hits on the word "paper".

You should be fine with regular file folders. Unless you leave your paper in there for 15 years, I don't think acid free is a must

Thanks, that's what I was hoping to hear! I have only recently started hoarding... err.. I mean collecting paper because of the wonderful designer papers SU! has come out with. So hopefully I will use them before 15 years goes by!

I'd think regular folders would be OK.

I store my 8-1/2 x 11 Card Stock in file folders too. They are NOT acid free, BUT I slip them into extra large acid free, archival page protectors first. I love this system.
