Why is it not possible to find a decently looking affordable filing cabinet? Privileged problem? Absolutely.
They are almost a necessity from a functional standpoint (in our household we have mortgage and home ownership documents, my husband’s visas/permanent residence documents, insurance documents, vet records/receipts/insurance claims, extensive complicated medical records for myself, etc.), but office supply companies have made it their mission to produce the most practical/efficient product with the most hideous exterior at an exorbitant price-point. Here, buy this $200 eyesore. It comes in black or putty. Who in their right mind would buy anything that came in a colour called putty?! That word is on par with “moist” as body-contorting revolting.
