This system works beautifully for us. It keeps paperwork off of the table or the countertops, and it keeps items tucked out of view. Yet, everything is still within reach.
We tend to sort through our personal boxes about once every two months… to throw out the items we don’t need, etc.
Truth be told…
I think I may have some things in my box that have been in there for, oh, 8 years or so now.
but it works.
