Fellows Vertical Desktop Organizer File Review - Organize Your Work
In an on-going attempt for inspiration
for new articles, I occasionally look around myself for things that I often
overlook. When stumped, I look to do a product review of something
I use everyday.
Just as I thought I was running out of options, I found myself staring at my desk. I used to have a sloppy desk covered with piles of papers. Every time I needed to find a document, I would have to flip through piles of junk over and over again to find what I was looking for.
Seriously, my office could have been classified as a fire hazard! I had so much paper, with reverse recycling, you could rebuild a redwood forest.
I figured out a way to cure my disorganized problem forever. Because of the product I reviewed below, my desk surface is literally void of papers. It is the cleanest in the office and I have been awarded numerous promotions and more money because of this product. My dog even got better looking. I found a beautiful spouse
Okay.... that paragraph is a complete and utter lie. That said, I did get a lot of clutter up off my desk and my work space is much more organized since I bought two Fellows desktop organizers. These organizers keep sheets of paper organized vertically off my desk and make them very, visually easy to find.
My Fellows desktop vertical organizer
is all black, all metal. It has a very universal and sturdy look
to it. You could put this organizer on an elegant mahogany desk in
a gorgeous office setting. You could also put this organizer in a
more work-like area such as a plant supervisors office or open warehouse
work spaces. It fits in anywhere. Its durable black look can hold up anywhere.
When I bought this, everyone at work loved the look so much, they wanted to date me. Seriously, they did, not.
It does look nice though.
This vertical desk top organizer is surprisingly light for its all-metal design, but it is pretty sturdy. The wires that make up the 'slots' or sections are pretty flexible and flex together easily if you press them together, but they snap back straight when you let go. Thick piles of paper (as I have photographed) are held firm and upright.
There are 4 'feet' that come with the Fellows organizer that protects the desk surface nicely and also allows for the organizer to be slid around easily without damaging the desk surface. The surface of my desk is wood and nicely finished. There are no marks left even after sitting for weeks and months in one place.
The foot print this takes up on your desk surface is pretty small, 9" x 11 3/8", just slightly larger than a standard piece of paper. Not much space taken considering the organization benefits is provides. The height is 8"
It works great. When I first pulled
it out of the box I was concerned about how easily the wire slots or sections
bent inward when I squished together. Once I let go though, they
bounced right back into place. When I smash stacks of paper in the
slots, like pro wrestler splits heads, the wire sections hold up nice and
I was very happy that over extended periods of time, no marks are left by the feet under the Fellows organizer.
8 " high
11 3/8" wide
11 slots about 1 - 1/8" to 1 - 1/4 space for paper (which is actually big enough, and bigger than it sounds)
Color (of mine) Black
The One in The Middle is What I Have
To Sum Up
A good reliable product. Very
sturdy and easy to take for granted. Good performance, good look.
The Fellows Organizer saved my life.... or was that my attorney after the prison bail-out? Not sure. Probably the latter .
Seriously, the Fellows 11 slot desktop vertical organizer is one heck of a product
