File storage boxes are a great way to free up space in your file cabinets and archive documents you don’t need to consult every day, but can’t throw away. You need to think about 3 things when choosing your file:
- How much you need to store
- What types of items are you storing.
- Where you’ll keep your file boxes.
We’ve got a detailed buying guide up at OnTimeSupplies.com, but here are a few basic guidelines.
