Editor's Notes

December 13, 2018:

Selected models that feature varying file capacities to accommodate a range of needs. Chose color-coded in addition to tabbed options, and made sure to include a variety of base sizes and shapes so that users can easily find a solution that fits in well with their existing home or office setup.
