I am a law student with tons of paperwork that was always cluttering up my desk area. I got this to file my weekly documents like readings, assignments, work things, etc. and to keep certain papers within reach at all times. It works perfectly. I switched out the mint hanging folders for olive green ones that matched my decor better, and they fit fine. I have had a back folder slip off the end if I wasn't careful, but for light organization this works great and looks so much better than my old pile.
