I am in the market for a file cabinet.
Yes, that’s right. This is possibly the least romantic furniture purchase you can make in the years prior to requiring assisted living facilities, but the sad fact is that now that I’m a real adult, I do in fact have paperwork that needs to be kept. Seven years’ worth of tax documents, insurance papers, lease documents, continuing legal education certificates… yep, that’s some hot stuff. What can I say, my life is thrills 24/7!
To date, this paperwork has been living in a black plastic crate that I have had for so long that I can’t remember where it came from any more. While I lived like a student for a good long time after graduating from school, I finally watched one too many hours of HGTV a couple of years ago and have been slowly adding pieces of actual furniture to my apartment ever since. Although I do have an unparalleled ability to ignore boxes in corners after a month or two, the crate is currently living out in the middle of my living room, which seems a bit much.
