manages the clutter
on March 31, 2014
I wanted something that would serve multiple functions, be able to sit on a counter, help me organize and look nice. I purchased white to match my kitchen cabinets. This unit is solid and heavy. I liked that I could label the cubbies to suit my needs. I could also take out a slot for a cubbie so instead of 8, I have 7, one of which is larger. The side bin works for pens and scissors. The bottom shelf can hold a small book, tablets, coin purse, glasses, etc.. The hooks work fine for my keys (some reviewers said they were too curved). I put some felt pads on the bottom so I could slide the unit to access both sides and so it wouldn't scratch my counter.
Legal sized envelopes stick out a few inches. I keep the unit quite full and it still looks cluttered but is well used and helps me manage and organize my incoming mail. I did not give it 5 stars because the craftsmanship is not precise. For example, the corners do not match up. If you are looking for something that is more refined than utilitarian, this may not be the piece for you.
