Why and how a pocket knife is a great office organizing tool

In reference to the video tour of my work bag, someone asked "Why do you carry a pocket knife?"  Good question!  Recently I had the perfect opportunity to use it: I needed to create a makeshift file box for a pretty big paper sorting project.  In these cases, we can’t wait to fulfill a Container Store order.  We need a file box stat!  With my pocket knife, within a minute I repurposed a cardboard box into exactly the container we needed.
