I have one of these desk top metal file organizers that are standard issue in many corporate offices. It usually holds manila folders bulging with papers. After recently cleaning out my home office I realized I don't need it anymore. I decided I would leave it at the bottom of our front stoop with a few other trinkets - an efficient way to make sure your unwanted items make their way to a loving home. But, luckily, before I left it out, I saw this over at LovelyDesign.
The ever-resourceful Sharilyn uses hers to hold her daughter's books. It makes for a unique and attractive organizer. If you don't have one already, PaperSource sells something similar.
