Black Stackable Storage & File Drawer
This is an affordable filing cabinet solution! I'm a graduate student and my paper files were accumulating, and I was shocked at how expensive those metal filing cabinets are. These aren't something I would want to own forever, but they are sturdy and they work. The drawers slide out smoothly as long as it's not broken (I happened to pick one up with a missing wheel, so that one drags a little but I live with it, so be sure to check and test all the drawers you buy before buying!) I stack them 4 high and they lock together, so it's just like having one of the metal ones but at a fraction of the price. It costs about $30 each, so $120 for four drawers vs. $179 for a two drawer Bisley one. Not bad!

Perfect Filing Drawer
If you want something that looks nice and is easy to use...this is the filing cabinet for you! I stack them three tall and they latch together with a "spine" to keep it from tilting. This is the least expensive way to file your items away!

I purchased the file drawer in black while visiting the store. I'm a big fan of The Container Store products, but I was disappointed with this purchase. I transferred hanging file folders into it and now the drawer doesn't open very easily. I don't think it has too much stuff in it -- it's not even full of files. When I tried to move it, even without anything in it, the front pieces popped up. It's just cheap plastic. I wish I had tried it out before taking the tags off because I would've returned it.

Versatile file storage but front part falls off
I wanted additional file storage that would be easy to move, easy to clean, and versatile (I anticipated moving several times in the next few years). I bought two of these and am pleased with their functionality. However, the front part of one of them easily falls off (which is important since I need the front part to connect so I can open the drawer). The drawer can still be pulled open should the front part break, but even the small amount of extra effort to get the drawer to open without the front part falling off can be annoying.
