Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my home office for the better! I had a traditional 2 slot sorter that was quickly filled as soon as I emptied it. I knew I needed a better solution and this mesh sorter is it - 5 slots so each of my kids have their own section, along with one for me, one for work and I still have an extra unassigned one! It keeps the papers organized and not in jumbled mess. Plus it matches my white desk. I would HIGHLY recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Magazine Storage (And Other Stuff!) These 'Super Sorters' are a perfect way for collectors to store magazines. They are also useful for dividing papers by groups. I have a client who is an avid collector of comic books and certain magazines, so we designed an Elfa storage wall over his desk. He loves being surrounded by the items he loves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it in my classroom I have purchased the entire mesh collection for my classroom. I love it! It makes everything very functional and all my supplies are organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item for desktop files This sorter holds many more files than the last one we had on the desk. It also will set on top of a mesh letter tray to hold those miscellaneous bits & pieces that need to be 'at hand' nearby. I am very pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silver mesh super sorter I have an older roll top desk with file folder drawers that do not accommodate a rack sliding file folder system. The super sorter fits snugly in the drawer lengthwise, still giving me room to slip file folders into the slots with room on the side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much needed! I use the "super sorter" to organize all the magazines I get every month. I subscribe to several large-format magazines that do not fit in a standard "magazine rack/holder" so the open sides on the "super sorter" are perfect. I was just storing my magazines on a pile on my desk corner until I had time to read them... Now they look organized and my space feels much less cluttered. Each slot gets a different category of magazine (fashion, home decor, cooking, catalog, etc) and I'm no longer shuffling a large pile around every month. :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not straight The uprights aren't straight. I put this on an eye-level shelf and the angles were very noticeable. One will angle right and another left. It looks like the welds aren't very good. There's also a lot of bead on each weld.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organized...CHECK!! This product was bought with the intention of organizing my monthly account statements. (I bought two -12 slots) I own a photography business and need to corral all of the paperwork neccessary to complete my taxes when the time rolled around. This product has made the enitre YEAR a breeze when it comes to putting the statements away when they come in the mail- just slide it in. Obviously I am a VISUAL person and the term "out of sight, out of mind" applies to me!!! So I love that these sit out on a shelf where I can just drop the statements in and move on. I just finished my taxes and it it so helpful to be able to pick up the sorter and move it to where I work on the reports!! I would suggest this product to anyone in need of getting the paperwork under control!!! Happy Organizing everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space Saver Deal! Not only does this mesh divider keep my paperbacks and files in place, but it also keeps ME from cramming too many books and binders into one space on my bookshelf. My articles look neat and clean, and the appropriate spacing lets my books stand ready for inspection! This sorter has been a space-saver in multiple ways!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for teachers! I am a teacher that needed some help with organizing my papers for the week. I bought this "super sorter" to help with this problem. I LOVE it. I have file folders labeled with the days of the week and can easily find what I need for each day. A lot of this type of sorter that I had found only had 4 slots. This one is perfect for a week of school!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Organization The mesh collection is a fantastic addition to my traditional-style office. The super sorter is exactly what I needed to keep everything organized. I only have two pieces from the collection, but plan on adding more! Also, I purchased online and picked it up at the store. I was very impressed with new store in Nashville and the employees were wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I went to The Container Store looking for anything that would help me organize all my paperwork for my Scentsy business and the sales associate showed me this! It has been great! I can open my packs of order forms and catalogs and have them right at hand to take with me when I leave for a party!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very practical I bought this Mesh Super Sorter a while ago and I can't believe how much easier it made it for me to keep my desk top paper free. It is very sturdy and stacks well with the other mesh products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product The only complaint I have is that I wish it fit as snugly on top of the flat mesh inboxes as the inboxes fit on themselves... it's just a bit loose which makes me worry that it may fall.
Date published: 2012-03-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size! I like that this is sturdy, but doesn't take up a lot of desk top space. However, I wish the dividers were staggered/tiered--access to files would be so much easier! Otherwise a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hit! I was looking for something to organize the piles on my desk. After reading the reviews on the Super Sorter I went ahead and ordered it. It is perfect. It looks sleek on my desk and the piles are no more. I'm going to also purchase the matching sorting trays for underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very helpful paper sorter What I like this product most is that its size and orientation. It sorts paper vertically and it is the right size so the paper "stands" even there is only a few pieces of them. One dimention is narrow enough so it can sit on my 8' deep above the desk Elfa shelf nicely but since the papers are filed sideways it can contain a lot of them. I can see it is also great for filing thin children's books. The only negative is the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kid's book sorter You know all those thin, "floppy" books for kids? This sorter is a miracle at keeping those books neat, tidy and accessible! Just sit one or two on a book shelf and instantly organize dozens of the thin, paperback, "Scholastic Books" that your child(ten) have accumulated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paper Organizer This paper sorter worked very well to help organize the enormous number of student worksheets. The mesh is as the description, light and "airy" looking. I actually placed it on top of a stack of 5 mesh paper trays and it looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect This sorter system is perfect for my desk at work. It's so much better than my "creative" stacking! And I'm using it with 2 paper trays and it was so easy to assemble and just works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stackable Bins I love these stackable bins. The silver color is not overwhelming and not too noticeable. I have them on one of my kitchen counters and I put two of these bins underneath the Mesh Super Sorter like one of the pictures showed. It does not take up too much room but allows me to keep my paperwork neat and organized.

Community Q&A

What does the space in between each section measure that holds the files?

In other words would a 3" binder fit or 2" binder or only a 1" binder?
Asked by: Ducky13
The five sections vary from 2-3/8" to 2-5/8" wide. So, they average 2-1/2" wide. Currently, the one at my desk is holding one 1" binder, one 1-1/4" binder, four 2-3/8" wide binders, plus a few pamphlets.
