I’ve been on the lookout for alternative options for Rolodex rotary card files for the Col-o-dex cards ($15) because I know that they are hard to come by, expensive and large. I stumbled across the Heidi Swapp Memorydex Desktop Card Tray box which is considerably smaller and considerably less expensive (just $9.54 Prime at the moment). It’s also in a simple gold and white striped paper wrap.
I’ve had mine for about three weeks and in my humid, Missouri summer house, one corner of the paper is coming loose but its nothing that a little glue or double stick tape wouldn’t fix. It would be easy to remove the paper and recover the box in another paper if you’re the crafty sort.
Overall, I really like the low profile and the tray fits perfectly inside my Ikea hack table so that the cards stay dust-free and out of direct sunlight.
I love the mint lining on the box and it actually matches the mint tabs that we sell almost perfectly.
So, if you are looking for an alternative to the larger Rolodex wheel and something considerably less expensive, the Heidi Swapp Memorydex Desktop Card Box is a good option.
