White BisleyÂ® Collection Cabinets
perfect for what I needed
I have a glass and brushed metal desk - no drawers. this fits perfectly under the desk and with its small design keeps the lean and clean look of the desk without looking bulky. The gray metal is an exact match for the metal of my desk. I purchased the four compartment dividers for the thinnest top two drawers and was able to easily and neatly sort small desk items like pens, paper clips, etc. Having the variety of drawer sizes has enabled me to organize envelopes, note cards, post-its staplers and all the other desk nonsense you need close at hand, even a ream of paper. Now the top of my desk can remain clear of clutter and those pen cups that can look sloppy.

Recommendation for these cabinets rest solely on the intent of use. In an office or home study, only a select few items may fit in the narrow and shallow drawers .
All drawers measure 9.25 inches in width, enough to add standard printer paper or similar, however std pocket folders may not.
Shallow depth was expected and depicted well from the picture. As my intention was to archive several 9.5 " folders, along with few
smaler printer items, the usage became somewhat limited.
The drawer inserts are great idea for smaller stored items ( just watch out for the plastic debris accompanying it ).

Cabinets are extremely well made. They are best used in small office or closets. They have very deep well crafted drawers of different sizes. The colors are great to perk up a room. Take plastic containers and throw away. Great for lingerie, clothing, jewelry, gloves, glasses in cases, hats (soft) scarves, buttons, all the many things in one location. These are the best organizers which reduce the footprint of other plastic containers, wicker organizers, soft woven organizers by 2/3rds. I was able to put everything into 5 of these which stacked on one side of closet. Highly recommend. Ordered and requested to pick up. It was in my car ready to go within 5 minutes of arriving at the Container Store. Bravo!

PRACTICAL & CONVENIENT UNDER-DESK STORAGE
I bought this mini 8-drawer file cabinet in white, along with the caster base. I work at a U-shaped desk and sit at its computer station. This cabinet fits perfectly into a space underneath and to the right of my chair (I'm right-handed). I no longer need to twist around and reach my left arm to open the top desk drawer or walk to the storage cabinets for supplies. I store the following: pens & pencils, highlighters and markers, clear project files, file folders, computer paper, post-its and scratch paper, and legal pads. The drawers are not full-extension; since they are small and light weight, they don't need to be. I was fortunate to buy the Bisley cabinet on sale during the Oak Brook moving sale, since the sales clerk told me they don't go on sale.
