    If you shop it Costco the cardboard boxes of 3 cartons of milk are the perfect size for files.

    Funny story, when I was 16, literally 30 years ago... I made a cardboard filing box using hangers that no longer had hooks on them, two cardboard boxes, and hand drawn pictures. Take the box for the filing cabinet, measure the spaces you want, turn the hangers upside down so the long part is the top, and cut small holes to push the "arms" of the hangers through a little. Take the other box and cut pieces off that fit up against the hangers to keep the papers secure. IF you don't have a tight fit for the hangers, probably should glue some pieces of cardboard in the hole the arms go through. Just between the top and angled part of the arm. Then glue on your decoration to the whole outside. :) Now-a-days, I make wooden boxes and use hanging files. :)
