Storage: How to be Trendy but Original


Storage is an essential part of your office ecosystem and Turnstone has some pretty great options if I do say so myself. As someone who moves around often in my office setting I need my must-haves accessible easily. In a previous article I showed you what I need for great work flow. In my lap top bag, I keep my current work files with me as well as my photo editing equipment and an extra external hard drive.

However my need for storage has grown beyond my laptop bag and I've been hunting for the perfect file cabinet. I looked to Pinterest and found some great inspiration. The stand alone, mobile office system:

Then went hunting. I scoured my favorite thrift stores and antique shops. (I showed you how I do it here) I decided I'd love a stand alone, smaller file cabinet that I could move easily and wasn't going to be an eye sore in a home or office. So I also wanted something a little more industrial looking to fit my personal style. When I found it (and for only ten bucks) I couldn't believe it. I grabbed it and went home happy. Now my office has an accent that fits my needs and means business.
