What do you, my loyal readers, do with all your files and other important paperwork? When I moved into my apartment, I bought a small, knee-high filing cabinet for all my paperwork. I keep all my financial documents like tax stuff, mortgage, pay statements, and banking info in this cabinet. Over the year, this cabinet is now bursting at the seams. It’s gotten to the point where I just stack all my new papers and files on top of the cabinet where it forms this precarious Jenga-like structure. Clearly, this isn’t a permanent solution.
I was thinking about getting a much larger three drawer vertical filing cabinet. This would cost me over $150 at Ikea and even more at Staples. The cheaper and possibly more efficient way to solve this is to buy a couple of bankers boxes. This would be a more modular solution. Where do you keep all your paperwork?
