Is Your Desk a Mess? I Can Help!

Is your des a mess?  Do you have things all over the place?  Do you need storage that goes up, rather than out, to save on space?  Look no further.  I have the answer. (a great online office supply store) recently sent me the Deflect-o Storage Cubes to review.  I'll be honest.  When I opened the box, I thought, "These are kinda neat."  But was not super impressed.  I always give everything I review a fair shot, so I took them to school to try out.  
I really don't need words to tell you how they work.  They are so easy-see for yourself...

Arrange them anyway you choose!
Clip together so they don't move on you.  Clips are included.  There are even extra!

The sections are so large that even pens fit in and don't hang out! I've got 3 rolls of masking tape in that bottom drawer!

After filling each section of each cube, I was in love.  It's the coolest thing and holds so. much. stuff.
I was truly surprised at how much it held.  See the cube with the X dividers that I have pens and highlighters in?  they fit in fairly flush with the edge.  I tested a new, unsharpened pencil and it stuck out too much for my liking, but not pens!

The cubes are plastic, but a heavy plastic.  The drawers can be rearranged.  You really can customize them anyway you want.  The cubes are currently between $5-12, depending on what style you want.  Each picture above will link you to the product.  I like them because they hold EVERYTHING I need in a day's time and they stack so they don't take up too much desk space.  I give these cubes my stamp of approval!

*I received these cubes free from, to review,  and have shared my honest opinions about the product.*


  1. I've seen these around. I like them but I don't understand why the clips are black. The product is clear plastic for an aesthetic reason. Why aren't the clips more incognito? I'm sure I would use them but those clips would drive me nuts.

    1. I wondered the same thing, but once you fill it with stuff, they kind of blend. Thanks for the comment!

  2. Those are pretty cool! I've never seen them before. I might need to try them out!

    1. They are very handy! Remind me of something you'd find at The Container Store!

  3. We have them in our school storage supply room. They seem to work pretty well!
