We were given one of Solutions' Magnetic Bamboo File Boxes as a gift about a year ago and constantly think about buying a second (or third.) It's great on the fridge for holding take-out menus, receipts, and the rest of the paper mess that seems to wind up in the kitchen. It works equally well, however, attached to the side of a file cabinet and acting as an inbox for office paper. Landing strip? We think it'd be great for holding catalogs and mail.
As you can see, the uses really are endless. And made out of eco-friendly sustainable bamboo, its streamlined look fits into almost any space.
