Like-itÂ® Large Desktop Station
The first time I went into The Container Store I saw this product and for some reason dismissed it as a product I wanted to own. Fast forward 2 years and a spontaneous visit to the store turned out to be life changing. They were having an office organizing demonstration and I had 20 minutes to spare. This was one of the products they had out and I took a closer look and had a completely different opinion from before. After the employees recommendation I decided to purchase the large station, one drawer, and a paper tray. I can say that I have never been happier with an office product purchase.
The pieces are solid construction, look great, and offer an amazing amount of storage. I have pretty much everything I had in my desk drawer before in the station. That alleviates having to open the drawer ever time I need something (which is constantly becasue I love using my office supplies) which saves me a ton of time. I use the tray as a "working file" holder and have the drawer filled with various notebooks. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to be more efficient while at the desk and have a perfect organization method for their tools.
I have attached a picture that shows how much I have stored and it still is well organized and not cluttered looking. I love this so much that I am going to buy the smallest system with a small drawer for my bill paying desk top (I actually want all 3 sizes but I might just be crazy my wife tells me).

Office Organizer Turned Makeup Organizer
I combined my loves of organization and makeup when I purchased the large desktop station. A true makeup organizer can run up to $300, which I was absolutely unwilling to spend. Instead I purchased the large desktop station and other related components and turned it into the greatest makeup organizer I have ever seen! I can easily see and find anything and everything I need. I would highly recommend this item for anyone looking for a great, cost-effective way to organize their makeup.

Stacking and customizable
I should have read the reviews before purchasing it, because then I would have been even more excited about it! I use it to organize my crafting supplies, and it is perfect.
I love that the middle section has multiple dividers. It makes it easy to make sections for paintbrushes, pencils and a variety of other items. The front middle section also has small pieces that can be used or removed to suit your needs.
I wish the back section also had dividers, but that's because I'm using it for craft supplies.
This product works great with the letter trays. If you do use it with them, it only covers about half of the tray, so you are able to stack things a bit higher in the front of the top tray. This is handy for my craft supplies.
The plastic is high quality, and feels smooth to the touch and sturdy.

Simple & handy
My desk was always a mess with papers for procedures on this and that and sticky note pads and mess strewn all over..yea im not messy ;) I needed to tidy up and put everything in one place that is accessable. I went into the container store for a dog container and saw this item on sale..it was in impulse buy but it was a positve one. I'm able to fit a 1/2" binder in the large section sideways along with over 100 more piece of papers. I love how the second larger opening has the option to use the dividers to section off cubby holders. I can fit about 15 writing insturments (pens, pencils, highlighters) even a ruler, book marker and scissors between the two holders on the left and right.
