I purchased this to use as a part of our family's kitchen "command center"; this is in a highly visible area of our house so I wanted something that was functional, low-profile, and not an eyesore. This organizer is PERFECT. There are enough pockets for each of our 4 family members, plus a few more that I've designated for bills and other correspondence. It helps keep the paper clutter off the counters and easily accessible for each of us. I love the clear front pocket where I keep my 2nd grader's "specials" calendar so he can easily see whether he has PE, art, music or computer lab on any given school day. I like the bright colors; they help to liven up my kitchen but aren't at all tacky. Each folder is removable so the colors can go in any order you want.
As a nomadic military family, we move frequently and I've come to rely on 3M Command strips to hang as many things as I can on the walls, in order to not leave holes; a medium-sized hook holds unit this well, especially since we don't have more than 4 lbs of papers in it at any given time. (When the pockets are bulging, that's what I know I need to go through and put things away!)
Highly recommend for a home office or a family command center.

Tape over labels and nail to wall.
These are perfect. Reading other reviews I nailed mine into the wall instead of relying on the hook. I also opted for Avery standard labels over the given once since everyone said they peeled off. Even the Avery labels peeled so it's not the label, it's the plastic. So I taped over the label. I purchased several for various organizing of paperwork that I need to be easy and accessible. On sale for $12! Yes please!

A perfect solution for school
A perfect solution for school. My daughter just started Kindergarten and I was instantly overwhelmed with the amount of things coming home in her backpack. She was getting homework, correspondence, newsletter, flash cards, drawings and artwork, order forms, the list is endless. I immediately sought out an organization solution. This has been a lifesaver. I hung this right above her backpack and I open and go through and sort everything right when she gets home(I plan to make a book out of some of her artwork and assignments one day). This is durable. The colors are bright and are faster for easy sorting as you more quickly remember colors where things go after a while. Has so many uses you could apply it with. It's very lightweight yet strong it's even holding a book or two plus loads of paper. I would definitely say this is an organizational must have! My only con or negative for this is that the labels don't stay on at all(see picture) but I just used some clear packing tape over them and problem solved! Not a deal breaker by any means.

YES~ The Order Of The Colored Files Can Be Changed... Haha!
For the slightly OCD lke myself, lol... The files themselves are not clear dropping into stationary colored slots (I was hoping this wouldnt be the case but what a silly question to ask, right? Haha... It wasn't a deal breaker anyway! ; )
Great purchase. This keeps things at eye level hung up on our wall, bright, and too hard for my husband to miss! Smile. We're staying with family temporarily so space is limited and this is perfect for our needs. Just for the everyday stuff:
-PENDING MAIL/ ACTION ITEMS
-HSA (MEDICAL) RECEIPTS
-ALL OTHER RECEIPTS
-(Calendar in clear sleeve)
Then, after a few months, I can move what we need to keep into longer term files and shred what we don't need. This will be simple enough for my husband and I to both appreciate while waiting for our new home. Love it!
Posting a photo and will update this review down the road regarding how it holds up. Feels sturdy enough to hold it's weight for more than our needs. Recommend it to others and hope this is helpful.

Useful and great looking, minor problems
This is perfect if you don't have the space for a file cabinet in your office. I do, however, have a couple of complaints:
First, it would be helpful if the folders were a little bit taller (deeper). If I put a business or larger size envelope in a folder vertically, it can cover up the label (see photo). And if I place the envelope in horizontally (the long way), it won't be visible.
Second, speaking of the labels--they don't stick. The labels that came with the file folders don't stick to the file folders. They just curl right off.

A homeschool must have!!
This thing rocks! In fact, I bought two while there was a lightning deal going on. I am a homeschool mother and organization is key to my success (and survival) of being a good homeschool teacher. I'm the first to admit that I'm not the most organized person in the world, so I am always on the lookout for things like this wall hanger, that can help me to better organize my schoolwork, as well, save me some space as we live in a small townhouse in San Francisco.There are 6 different folders and a clear folder on the bottom that you can do with what you like. I usually put schoolwork that we are still working on in that clear folder. This wall hanger comes with stickers so that you can label what each folder contains. For me, that would be the different subjects I teach my son. When I noticed what a time and space saver this wall hanger was, I immediately ordered one for my 10-year-old son. He has special needs and one of his weaknesses is organization. So, in an attempt to help him to start organizing his own schoolwork, I hung up one in his room. I made one side of his room all school-related. The wall hanger, hooks for his backpack and coat, his desk with pencils and paper on it and a wall calendar. I've attached some pictures of my wall hanger and also of my son's wall hanger and how we use it to organize his school related things. It also helps if you pick a day at the end of the month to go through your folders and save what you need and discard the rest.

Great wall/portable wall organizer
As someone who works from home 2 days per week and ha as cramped working area, this is the best organizational folder ever. They come with labels but also perfectly fits the Avery long labels so I was able to print from my computer. I hang the file and have easy quick access to all of my most important documents. And I love being able to compact it into a portable file organizer. The bottom has a calendar holder that I also use.

I loved the idea of this product and many teachers in my building utilize this item as a way to keep organized. When I opened the package I was disappointed to find that the top yellow folder was broken and therefore would not hang properly!

Love, love love it!
It was time to declutter the office work room counters, looking for replacements for the standard wire desktop file folder sorter that we were using to hold various forms. After endless days of looking at wall file folder pockets that were hideously expensive, I stumbled across this and instantly knew my search was over! This item is beautiful on the wall; it lays virtually flat vs. standard wall pockets that protrude . I wish I had more empty walls so I could buy more. And the price can't be beat.
