Organization Geek!

That is what I am! I loooove organizing- whether its baskets, files, folders, alphabetically, structurally, etc. there is nothing I love more than seeing everything neat and put away. That is why, when Shoplet.com contacted me to do a review of the Deflect-O  Desk Cube Organizers I could not say no!
Shoplet sent me four stackable cubes from Deflect-O to review and use. These cubes are great because they can be arranged in any possible way you want, and have different organizational areas to put office supplies, or other small objects in. You could use these on your desk, in your classroom, or, in your bedroom, like I did to organize jewelry and accessories!
I chose to set up my cubes in a square. These cubes' dimensions are all 6x6x6 inches. When I opened my package of goodies, I found each cube is clear in color and made of a plastic material. The outside of each cube has a frosted finish. Each came with two linking clips. These clips are used to link the boxes together. Each box has an indentation on each side of its walls where the clips go, and they all attach at the opening of the boxes. The clips are black, and made of metal, to make sure that the cubes are sturdily attached to each other.
One of the cubes was the Deflect-o Desk Cube with X Dividers (DEF350201).I like the look and the organization value of this cube, because it can be used for small or large objects. You can put pens and pencils, or bigger items in each area. The plastic X was sturdy and looked like it could withstand and hold a good amount of weight. I used this area to hold my sunglasses and eye glasses.

The next cube is the Deflect-o Desk Cube (DEF350401). I liked this one because it is just an open cube. The six inches back gave enough room that you could put several things in the cube, and make use of the space. I used this area to stash my small bottles of hair and body care products. It's the perfect height for my perfume, travel size lotions and hairsprays, etc.

The third cube is the Deflect-o Desk Cube (DEF350301).This one came with 4 small clear plastic drawers, that feel pretty heavy-duty. I like that you can see right through the drawers, and you can even remove the drawers and use the shelf in the middle of the cube. What I do not like about the drawers is they do not fully close! I don't know about you, but whether I am at my desk, in my classroom, or getting ready in the morning, I don't want to have to fret about having a drawer of whatnot spill out. I feel much better when the drawers are fully closed! The nice thing is that these drawers are deep, so the probability that there is a spill is lessened. I filled my four drawers with jewelry and lip care.

The fourth and final cube I received was the Deflect-o Two Drawer Cube Organizer (DEF350101).This one is similar to the one above, but it just has two larger horizontal drawers instead of four. Again, the drawers are nice and deep, but they don't fully close. I filled these with jewelry and hair accessories. Another thing I do like about all the drawers is that they fully pull out, so you can take your supplies with you, if needed.
At first, I thought these cubes were going to be an alternative to the "Teacher Toolbox" that many of us have seen from teacher bloggers that they create to put all their desk supplies in. This isn't quite what I would choose to use at my desk, but I do like the different size of areas of the cubes that can be used for different materials. I've also seen the built-in organizers in desks, and these cubes are nice because you can rearrange the different boxes to fit in the space you have. The quality of these cubes are somewhat standard. I've seen worse and I've seen better. If I could change one thing on the overall make of these cubes, I would choose to have them connect at the back or middle of the cube, so it doesn't become top heavy, or start to detach. I also do not like how the drawers do not close, and would change that as well. I do believe that these products do what they were set out to do, to hold office or other supplies, and provide organization. Though they would not be my first choice, they have a great use. I really liked the products, and do recommend them for your desk or office!
Thank you to Shoplet and Deflect-o for sending me these promotional products. I received these cubes with no extra compensation for my review on these items. All opinions in this post are my own, based on my experience with these items.
