Work area tips?

Hello ladies,

I'm a SAHM to two boys, aged 4 and 14 months, as well as 3 homestay students at the moment: two 11-year-old girls (leaving in two weeks) and a 17-year-old boy (just arrived for the year).

I don't use filing cabinets. Instead, I have two black leather filing boxes lined with felt. They have a flip top lid and hold those manila file folders. I have no idea where they came from because BIL gave them to us, but I love them because they're small, stylish, and work really well.

How much paperwork do you need near you? Maybe you can just keep a box like this near your work area for the most recent information and not have to worry about the filing cabinet?
