Usually index card organizers usually look like this…
There’s nothing wrong or bad about these types of index card holders. In-fact, I own one myself. They are primarily good at storing and preserving index cards.
For example, as a recipe card holder box.
Where these types of index card organizers tend to not be so good is in a school setting when you are trying to learn.
Index cards don’t do you any good sitting in a box or in a stack somewhere collecting dust.
If your goal is to memorize and remember the material, you need to make your notes visible in-order to give yourself as many opportunities as you can to encounter and re-review the material.
The Hanging Index Card Holder
Imagine you are trying to study for a test. You’ve cracked your books and spent hours meticulously extracting the information that you think will be vital to ace the test.
Now you have a stack of flash cards.
What is the best way to study? Put your flash cards in a box or place them in an area that you can visibly see throughout your day?
The box method (mentioned above) can be effective if you actually take action, grab your box of index cards, and set aside time to go through them on a regular basis.
The problem is, most students don’t have that level of discipline to plan ahead, and then choose studying flash cards over other activities like YouTube or being on their phone.
We live in an age of distraction where even the littlest barriers can prevent us from taking the first step towards doing what we know we need to do.
That’s why students should try to eliminate as many barriers to studying as they can.
You can do that with our hanging index card sleeve.
Why Index Card Sleeves You Can Hang?
Look at the image below.
Our wall-hanging index card organizer allows you to place your index cards in a visible area.
How does this help you study?
It’s simple. You learn the material faster because you see it more.
When your index cards are out-of-sight in a box, they are out-of-mind. If they are out-of-mind, you aren’t thinking about them, and therefore, aren’t learning.
By hanging your index cards in plain sight, you’ve eliminated barriers such as:
- Setting aside time
- Physically picking up a stack of index cards and forcing yourself to go through them
- Effort it takes to find the ONE card you’re thinking about
With your notes visible, you let the information consciously and subconsciously absorb into your mind by keeping them near you and seeing them throughout your day. You choose when you want to actively review them or review them in-passing.
No elaborate setup required
Two normal push pins. No damaging your wall or complex installation process.
They look great because they’re clear and will blend in with their existing environment.
