Leven Sturdy Magazine File Holder/Desk Organizer for Office Organization and Storage with 3 Vertical Compartments Review:


I am a home educator and have tons of folders, binders, books, loose paper, etc. I am always looking for ways to organize it all because I hate clutter. This was the perfect addition to go on top of my clear, stackable drawers I have the kids workbooks in. It arrived quickly and very well packaged! The instructions are super easy to follow, actually my 10 year old son was able to put it together for me with no issues in 5 minutes! It holds our folders, several reading books and a planner with tons of room to spare! The quality of the plastic is nice and not flimsy, I love the color and the size is just right and holds more than I expected! There are labels to write what’s in each section if you want to do that, I just chose not to. I am so please with this and will actually be ordering a second one! To top it all off there was a flyer in the box with the instructions that says you can pick a free gift from two listed items! I was shocked, who lets you get a gift after you purchase a product! I emailed the address on the flyer and told them what gift I wanted! The gift arrived quickly and is just an nice quality as this organizer! I am so pleased with this company’s products and wonderful customer service!



6 Pack - SimpleHouseware Classroom Magazine File Holder Organizer Box Review:


Great sturdy holders.
I purchased the 6-pack, they look exactly like in the picture. They're made of nice sturdy cardboard - I use them to file documents and handmade flash cards for my baby. They've really helped clear up some of the mess that's been floating around the living room for a while!
Putting them together was really easy - they arrive flat and you tuck in the tabs on the bottom to unfold them. Nice holders at a good price.



Business Source Deluxe Catalog Display Rack Review:


I read another review that said this was flimsy and couldn't stand its own weight and almost didn't order. I decided to go ahead and try anyway and I have NO idea what that other reviewer could have been talking about. Unless you're putting metal inside the sleeves, this thing is built to last. The base is large and therefore is quite sturdy. The assembly takes less than 1 minute.

I can't believe others charge over $100 for similar things. This is great! Two thumbs up!



DURABLE Desktop Reference System, 10 Double-Sided Panels, Letter-Size, Assorted Colors, VARIO Design (536000) Review:


After researching various models of desktop references and reading the reviews, I decided to purchase this one due to the higher rating. It arrived well packaged and on the date specified. I found it very easy to put together and did not need any help. I love that I have two viewing angles to choose from. I tried both and found the best one that suits my space and needs. I also love that there is room to expand by purchasing an additional 10-panel expansion kit. I like the stability of the base and have no worries of it tipping over. It’s also a nice width so it doesn’t take up too much space. I understand that it is more pricey than other 10-panel Desktop references, but you are paying for the additional viewing angle and expandability.

The downsides I have found are the difficulty of finding the expansion kit and the viewing angle I prefer is the standard one on the less expensive models. I found the expansion kit online for $56 and frankly find it cheaper purchasing the 20-panel desktop reference than purchasing the 10-panel and the expansion kit separately. I suggest purchasing a less expensive model if you only need 10-panel.

Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and would buy this brand again.



Fellowes Catalog Rack, 4 Compartment, Wire, Silver (10402) Review:


I bought this item so that I would have a handy place to store large binders of reference materials I refer to frequently. I put it on a shelf under a table beside my desk, which makes access very convenient. As another reviewer stated, it would be nice if it was a little bit deeper to accommodate large binders, which is why I didn't rate this item as 5 stars. I have 3" binders on it right now, and they do hang off the edge quite a bit, however, they are not falling off of it and the binders seem quite stable on the shelf. For the price it was definitely worth it and I would purchase this item again.



Evelots Magazine File Holder-Organizer-Full 4 Inch Wide-6 Colors-W/Labels-Set/6 Review:


We bought these for our homeschool room to organize the books we're using. They're cardboard and came collapsed, but they were very easy to put together (I'm assuming because my 9 year old did it while I was out of the room). Very sturdy, the picture shows them with magazines but I filled them with books and they're holding up nicely. No falling down or bending at all. Definitely much cuter than piles of books all over the room.

Business Source Deluxe Catalog Display Racks, 20 Documents, Black (BSN62888) Review:


This is an excellent product, especially for the price. It was particularly easy to assemble (though I have not tried to insert the tabs), and I am usually one who struggles with assembly. I am giving this product 4 stars not because there is an issue with the quality, but because I think it could be improved slightly. The panels swivel on the base, as advertised, but I wish there were a way to choose not to have it swivel. For my purposes, it's a little annoying to have all the panels rotate some on the base when I flip the pages. It seems there should be a way to secure it to make the swivel optional, but I don't see one. It is also larger than I thought it would be (I didn't see any dimensions), so make sure you have room for this item. The base is very large (about 13 inches across) and it sits high in the stand (from desk to top of panel, it's about 19 inches tall). When the panels are opened like a book, as seen in the picture, it is about 19 inches across. If I had realized how large it was, I may not have bought it because I am trying to use it on a desk at home. In a larger office setting, or for a business display, this would be fine. I bought this because I have a much more expensive one at work, and I wanted to have something like it at home but couldn't justify the price. This really is a good product for the price. P.S. It appears that you can take the panels off the base and easily secure the top part to a wall using just two screws. That might be a helpful option for some uses.



DURABLE Desktop Reference System, 10 Double-Sided Panels, Letter-Size, Assorted Colors, INSTAVIEW Design (561200) Review:


This product does exactly what it says it does. Great if you have a job where you're having to refer to the same documents over and over. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because the metal bar that fits into the back can come loose if it's bumped causing the unit to fall. This will NOT happen though unless something bumps into it. The plastic sleeves can actually fit about 10 sheets in each sleeve by the way and it's not too difficult to pull documents out for reference. I'm glad I bought one and would recommend it to anyone else.
