I don't know about you, but between bills, notes, bank statements, mail, and lists, my desk and kitchen table often look like this:
The thing is, I always want to have any important documents in sight and within reach. The Smead cascading wall organizer gets that. It's a super-handy hanging organizer with six color-coded folders plus a clear pocket, so you'll know exactly where all your papers are, no clutter in sight.
This thing has been a total game-changer for tons of people: It's got over 1,000 positive reviews, can be put to lots of different uses, and is equally great for home or the office.
Lots of customer reviews are from teachers, who find it especially useful for maintaining organized classrooms (and their sanity).
And some of these review photos are basically just organization porn. I mean, look at this!
So TL;DR: If you want to have a hella organized home, classroom, or workspace with basically zero effort, try one of these cascading organizers.
Get it from Amazon for $12.74+ (available in three colors).
