Due to living in the Houston area I am always concerned about the possibility of having to evacuate my home due to a hurricane or storm. Always having used a metal file cabinet for important papers I recently realized that I could not easily pick up a file cabinet, throw it in the car and take off. So I started looking for alternate storage options and finally found just the right thing. I am talking about Sterilite Office Ware. These are stackable file boxes that are hard plastic with a lid that folds back on hinges for full access and a latch that locks down and stays shut. The lid is so designed that it creates "handles" to pick it up. The box is ready to use hanging folders - turn it one way and it is legal size or turn the other way and it is letter size. It holds a large amount of hanging folders and with the lid shut the folders stay in place. The boxes are $6.83 each - 2 boxes holds about the same as a two-drawer file cabinet which costs $25 - $30. The label on the box says it is model number 1878. You can look at other Sterilite products on their web sight. If a storm comes, grab the boxes and run. You've got all your important papers in a light, easy to carry container.
