Filing boxes are one of those things you don’t really think about until you’re faced with the task of organizing bills, research, or even your winter wardrobe. File boxes are a great place to store magazines, artwork, pictures, or even CDs and DVDs. They come in all sorts of sizes and materials and with a little thought can go with almost any decor.
Immediate, quick and temporary storage
Not all files need to be kept forever. For example, if you’re a student who takes a fair amount of classes, you might be hunting down a bunch of different pieces of paper for your class work. Even in the age of online courses and digital files, instructors often hand out a curriculum, guides, review sheets, and more. Authors are another group who may keep temporary files for a project. Once the semester is over or the project is over, these files are often of little value. The important pieces can be put in a more permanent location, while the less important pieces can go to the scrap basket.
