A Dish Drying Rack Filing System

Last year I came across this darling "on the go" organization system (made with a drying rack for dishes!) on Pinterest. You can find the original source here.

On-the-Go Filing 

I had high hopes that this would solve my at-home paperwork dilemma. After much searching, I found the drying rack at Target, but only in black. And then I couldn't find very cute folders...although I didn't search all that hard. I never got around to labeling it, I did shove some papers into it, but it mostly collected junk.

When I walked into the Dollar Tree today and stumbled upon these cutesie folders I just knew my junk collector needed another shot at fulfilling its purpose.

Hopefully its purpose this time around will be to provide me with a place to store my daily folders, To Grade folder, and To File folder. Is that totally weird to file papers in a file, and then eventually file those same papers elsewhere?! 

Logic would tell you just file them where they belong the first time. I've lived with me for many years and I can tell you right now that ain't gonna happen! I'm hoping this intermediate place will help. 

Here it is all put together.

Now if that's not screaming PIN ME then I don't know what is! I love how it came out. (Please un-notice that I don't have my files labeled {again}. Thanks!)

Be sure to join in my giveaway before you hop on outta here.
