Wood or Steel?
New or Used?
Where to buy?
I have been looking online and the prices are high and vary widely from site to site. I had my heart set on oak flat files, but most do not have the steel drawer slides and the ones that do add several hundred (!) dollars to the price. After looking online I get frustrated and put the idea aside for a few weeks. Then I start the process over again. I have hundreds of sheets of paper and because they are hard to get to, I avoid them.
This is how I store the papers now:
The three big boxes came to me from the Italian paper company, Rossi. This is how they ship their papers. I was thrilled to get the boxes and have had them for about 8 or 9 years. They hold a lot of paper, but after a few moves and lifting them in and out of the closet or out from under a bed, they are falling apart and sagging. It isn't good for the paper. John told me I could have anything I wanted for my birthday and suggested I get flat files. What type do you suggest?
