I used it for my office desk so that I could make use of the vertical space for all the objects all over my desk, and it looks so much neater thanks to this handy shelf! It's fairly durable: I put my office phone (~10 lbs) on the top shelf, which is resting on the very edge of the bottom piece, and there have been no issues so far!" β€”Sarvani Gorti

There are just the right amount of tabs for our birth certificates, passports, social security cards, car titles, will, degrees, etc. in one place, and this folder is small enough that you can lock it in a home safe or safety deposit box. I let a couple family members know where I keep this so that they can access it in case of an emergency. It is such a relief knowing that all these things are together and organized.

I've got Chapstick, hand lotions, a small flashlight, and other bedside items in them so they're not just rolling around the drawer. I just bought some more for my bathroom vanity. They fit together nicely but also lift right out of each other. The plastic is sturdy, and they came individually wrapped to keep them from scratching." β€”Sparkyj

The top shelf is a great place to keep often-used items (honey, Sriracha sauce, garlic powder, etc.), and the hooks at the bottom work well for small pot holders. The magnet holds well β€” I have not had any issues with the rack sliding down the side of my fridge. I think this is a great product." β€”C. A. Fuchs

Each pocket can more than comfortably hold an entire set of queen sheets (I'm sure they would hold king sets perfectly), and I can easily see the sets.
