Not everyone needs an oversized filing cabinet. A shallow document case can help protect important items without taking up a lot of space. Whether you need to store sensitive items behind your teacher’s desk in the classroom or in a home office, these are our top picks.

These shallow document cases are available in three colors: clear, blue and green. We also like that they have a sturdy snap closure for better durability. These cases can also be stacked.

Expert Commentary

For medium to lesser quantity documents, photos and files, these are a must. I personally use these to organize and store my annual tax returns, since the IRS recommends you keep at least seven years of historical returns. These are also durable, easy to clean, store and open and close. You can even use these to package gifts or store things besides papers. There are endless uses for these so pick up a pack today!
