Divide & Conquer: 8-Slot Literature Sorter

8-Slot Literature Sorter

When it comes to my graphic design business, there is little that I print on paper. I use eFax and keep electronic copies of my faxes, keep my accounting records on computer and have a couple of sketch books for putting design ideas down on paper. Still, this doesn’t stop the top of my desk from becoming a magnet for clutter, mostly from mail, magazines and my daughter’s endless toddler doodling. I have one of those old plastic trays for sorting paper, but it is small, so most stuff ends up on top of it rather than sorted neatly inside it.

This great 8-Slot Literature Sorter looks like the answer to my clutter problems. Each slot is lette-sized, so I’d be able to fit all those pesky magazines in it, along with the calendar, menu and newsletter my daughter’s preschool sends home each week. And because there are so many compartments, I could dedicate each to a specific purpose. I can just picture it now with a nice vase of fresh flowers on top of it. Clearing the clutter and adding some foliage just might motivate me to get more done than I have been lately.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of recycled cardboard

Price: $16.99

    I just ordered two of these! It’s exactly what I need to declutter my paper inbox that is always taking over the dining room buffet in semi-organized piles. Instead, a pile on each little shelf. Brilliant!

    I’ll take two of those, and one person to organize my papers!

    @ meagan I’m so happy to hear these solved a problem for you! I’m trying to reorganize my desk area, and I know how bad those piles of paper can get.

    @ Dr. Nicole Can I borrow your organizer from time to time?
