Portable Tickler File?

I'm looking for a portable tickler file, something I can put 43 folders in or is made to handle 43 folders, and can be portable between my office and home.

Anyone got any tips here?

I actually managed to find a nice 3" single pocket folio at Staples which holds 43 folders nicely and is still small enough to be portable.

I just wasn't thinking outside the box enough. The mental picture I created for myself was a large filing cabinet, when in reality, these folders don't take up that much space.

As an IT Manager, I don't often have things I need to place in my tickler file, most of what I do is on demand, as machines go down, I have to fix them that day. Future reminders do happen, but it's not like I'll fill an entire 3" folio to capacity and then some.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
