Before and After: Heather's Filing System

Before and After: Heather's Filing System


AT reader Heather wrote, "I've been preparing for the Cure for the past 3 months even though I didn't know it. I've been purging, purging, purging and getting rid of things I absolutely hate. One of these things was my file cabinet, which I hate on a basic level..."

"...It holds such negative items like past tax returns, vet bills from my departed Daisy, car repair records, etc, etc. Additionally, it was dented, dusty and ugly. I set about looking for the perfect replacement. My criteria: nice to look at, holds all my files, doesn't look like a filing cabinet, multifunctional and under $200..."


"...I finally found (created) what I was looking for! I got the ottoman at Target for $89 (new filing cabinets in the size I needed were $250) and added a $20 insert from Office depot. Not only do I have more seating area in my office, it looks great and no one knows its filing."

Thanks for sharing, Heather!
