Banish Desktop Clutter with These File Sorters

Clutter can build up quickly on desktops. Students’ assignments can start to literally pile up on their desks, and for busy teachers, staying organized means staying sane. Home offices and homeschool rooms can easily pile up with both work and mail. File sorters to the rescue! Standing file sorters keep papers and folders organized and accessible, and some are even designed to hold larger items like binders, notebooks and workbooks. They’ll save space on your desk — and avoid that inevitable crash when your pile of papers falls over.

This file sorter features the classic black mesh design, which can blend in seamlessly with other mesh office storage solutions.

The Business Source file sorter can accommodate an array of materials from reusable portfolios to papers, homework to art projects. This sorter measures 8.78 inches long by 5.55 inches wide.

This five-section file sorter measures 12.8 inches wide, 8.3 inches long and 6.7 inches high. The low profile mesh wire design makes it easy to organize a variety of items, from notebooks to folders and binders.
