Bigsoâ¿¢ Bright Stockholm Desktop File
Beautiful Blue Boxes Make Filing Fun!
Okay, so filing isn't fun, but a pretty, Caribbean blue, sturdy yet stylish file box can make filing far less painful. I'm a writer and teacher who's usually buried under mountains of paper. A friend led me by the hand through the Stockholm section the Container Store, and gently explained that corralling the clutter required a system. "Please," I whispered. "I feel faint. Isn't there a robot who will scavenge through the piles on my desk, sort and file?"
"I'm sorry, darling," my friend said. "You'll have to sort, but at least you can put what you keep well-organized in these lovely blue boxes." Trembling, I filled my cart with pretty blue boxes and scampered home. Back in my little NYC apartment, I streamed Ella and Aretha tunes whilst boogie-filing (dancing while you file helps!). In an hour, chaos became clarity--my desk and kitchen counters were cleared, and so was my previously befuddled brain. Plus, my desk looks fabulous--streamlined and serene. The blue matches the sea blue of the painting on the wall I face when I write, and I am one happy, organized writer. Try it!

I bought 2 of these desktop files, green and blue. One I use for monthly paid bills and the other I use for receipts & warranty info on all major purchases or any household or outdoor item which has warranty paperwork. I purchased hanging Pendax file folders at a discount retailer so I have a separate file for each month in my paid bills file. In my receipts & warranties file I also use a Pendax file system which is alphabetized. No more digging through drawers to find receipts 6 months after we purchased an item. I bought the Bigso Stockholm letter sorter to use to hold my bills waiting to be paid. This system sure has helped us to be better organized.
These boxes are sturdy, colorful and they don't take up much space on my desk. I was fortunate to catch them on sale because they are a bit pricey at regular price in my opinion.

Had to return it... :(
Unfortunately, I had to return my desktop file. I LOVED the color and look of it, but the design and quality were not up to my standards. My hanging folders were not fitting well lengthwise. It was almost like the file was constructed so that one side was smaller than the other. On top of that, it just felt a little bit too flimsy for the price I paid for it. I returned it and purchased the acrylic file. Although I originally wanted a file box with a top, I needed the reassurance that it would hold my files well and allow me to use them without worrying about breaking my box!

Bigsoâ¿¢ Bright Stockholm Desktop File in Green
The green is a beautiful, deep color that matches the color shown online fairly well. I have two standing side by side on my desk and think they look great, I leave them sitting in their tops so I can easily file papers while I work. They are made of paper so I'd suggest being somewhat careful with them.
