“These are perfect for storing file folders—action, to do, to read, to file—and other accessories on your desk,” Rachel Strisik says.
“I recommend little trays within drawers versus drawer inserts,” says organizer Scott Roewer. “These have rubber feet. We put each supply—pens, rubber bands—in its own container.”
“A great piece for organizing your thoughts and supplies,” says Rachel Strisik of Rachel and Company, an organization firm in Bethesda. “It uses wall space while still being stylish.”
“I recommend these because the tab is built in and you don’t have to deal with plastic inserts,” Roewer says. “Just pull the tab up and you can write on that or print a label.”
This will scan 20 pages in a minute as searchable PDFs, “which makes them easier to look for than going through stacks of paper,” says Smart Productivity Solutions’ Pierrette Ashcroft.
“This acts like a file cabinet but has a bit of style, so it can be left out in the office,” Strisik says. “It can be placed on your desk or nearby on a bookcase.”
“Sometimes you need a pick-me-up when dealing with paper,” Strisik says. “The more you’re attracted to the folder, the more likely you’ll use it.”
“For a desk, I love this bamboo box,” says Scott Roewer. “The types made of fiberboard break. This, made of sustainable wood, adds a nice warmth.”
