Perfect for homework.
on July 26, 2009
I bought this to replace a clear plastic cup with swing out drawers that were always hanging open. I use this for my three kids to do their homework at the kitchen table. It holds everything they need, no excuses to get up looking for things. There are four pen compartments. You can fit probably a dozen Bic-sized pens in each. I use them for pencils, pens, markers, and crayons (and a pair of small scissors). The top has three open compartments that are great for erasers, paper clips, elastic bands, and a glue stick or two. The drawer is pretty big and can hold various items. We use it for sticky paper to mark pages or make quick notes. It is sturdy, I have no fears that it will fall apart. When homework is done or company is coming, I put it out of sight.
I liked it so much I got one for my desk and got rid of two or three random cups and holders. Also, being mesh, it is less likely to get dusty where it is hard to reach! I highly reccomend it!
