RealSimple.com: Storage Ideas for Small Spaces

Prop a Paper Zone

Give each and every piece a destination by committing a book-shelf to the cause.

1. Adjustable shelves let you position things at intuitive levels. Billy bookcase (80½ by 30¾ inches), $50, ikea.com for stores.

2. Use a pull-out paper sorter for loose-leaf, computer, and construction paper. Stash stationery in flat boxes. Bamboo paper sorter, $40, containerstore.com. Semikolon document boxes, $25 each, seejanework.com.

3. Label a folder for each family member, plus one for receipts. Parsons desktop file, $30, containerstore.com.

4. Use a spindle to hold coupons. Paderno check spindle, $28, amazon.com.

5. Mount a tiny bulletin board for invitations and notices; it will force you to toss old stuff.

6. Position an in-box low, so you can see its contents and kids can deposit school papers. Parsons tray, $20, containerstore.com.

7. Tuck in a front-loading shredder for sensitive papers (pop a hole in the back of the shelf for the cord), and station a bin nearby for recycling junk mail. MiniMate shredder, $50, staples.com.
