Simple Houseware Mesh Desk Organizer Review

SimpleHouseware Mesh Desk Organizer with Sliding Drawer, Double Tray and 5 Upright Sections, Silver

Simple Houseware seems to have a good grasp on what people need to become more organized. Their simple mesh desk organizer doesn’t look like much. However, it’s more than capable of helping you to sort all the items on your desk and never misplacing or having to replace or your office supplies.

Who is this product for?

This desk organizer can be a good addition to any small office desk or student desk. It has more than enough compartments for folders, phones, calculators, pens, stacks of paper, and more.

Although students can use it, don’t expect it to hold your textbooks. It might also not be stylish enough for a professional office. The silver finish on the mesh doesn’t exactly scream “executive.”

If your desk or room is particularly small, then you might want to consider this type of organizer with plenty of vertical storage options. That’s why it makes a lot of sense if you work in a traditional cubicle.

What’s included?

  • Plastic rivets
  • Two letter trays
  • 5 vertical separators
  • One compartmented drawer

There are no tools to help with the assembly. That being said, the desk organizer doesn’t require any. The plastic rivets can be easily popped in by hand.

Overview of features

Using mesh for desk organizers is nothing new. While it doesn’t always make for the sturdiest construction, it does help bring down the retail price. Furthermore, it lets you see exactly where everything is.

The lower drawer is a slide drawer and it comes with three compartments. They’re high enough to hold a few stacks of Post-its at least. The middle shelf is closed off at the back but not the sides. This is great if you need access from multiple angles.

The top section features 5 vertical separators. They’re big enough to keep legal-size papers and folders, if you don’t mind them sticking out a bit. These document holders are kept in place by four plastic rivets each, which come included in the package.

The entire Simple Houseware desk organizer is 13.25” long, 13” wide, and 9” tall. It’s safe to say that this organizer is quite the storage solution for such a small footprint.

How to use

Sometimes these desk organizers may come without tools, so you need to have your own ready for the job. But you don’t need them with the Simple Houseware mesh desk organizer. All you need is to align all the pieces together and pop in the black plastic rivets that should keep them together.

It may not seem like much at first but the more stuff that you put in it and on it, the more balanced it becomes. Still, it’s best if you don’t overstuff the end vertical compartments.

You might also want to avoid stuffing the sliding drawer. If you make it too heavy you might end up pulling the entire organizer towards you when you open it.


If you’re not the biggest fan of mesh, there is an alternative we’d like to present: the MyGift document tray and folder organizer. This design combines metal with rustic brown wood for a very durable, stable, and stylish alternative for your organizing needs.

It also has a smaller footprint than the Simple Houseware mesh organizer and about double the vertical space in between trays. That being said, this design caters more to documents and file folders than anything else.


The Simple Houseware mesh desk organizer is more than meets the eye. Although it looks visually simple, the design is far from average. It has multiple compartments for a wide variety of supplies.

It combines open trays with slide-in drawers as well as vertical document holders so that you can put as much of your desk as you can in one place. It has a rather small footprint which is why it’s so popular with workers in small offices.

Whether you get it for home or work, you get good value for the money.
