Complaints, WHY

WHY, Part 1: Filing Cabinets

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.
