I don't have it, but it looks handy! I'm not quite sure, but it looks to me like a cosmetic organizer for your bathroom counter or vanity. Maybe next time you are at Target or WalMart or similar store, check out the cosmetics section. You might be able to get something similar for cheaper.

I have run across it several times and it looks very useful and a good organizer. I would need a couple of them though.

I think it looks heavier duty (is that correct phrasing??) than the cosmetic or office supplies organizers... Bit looks can be deceiving!

I have found ANYTHING acrylic is very expensive, taking into consideration that "you get what you pay for". Cheap acrylic (which isn't really acrylic) usually falls apart.

I use acrylic containers at work (a cafe) and find that a small 2 shelf baked goods display (12 x 12 x 10) runs almost $400. My hoppers for my protein powders run $275. Even a decent sign holder is $15. (I have a cheap one that was $5 and it was a waste of money)

The $16.95 for this acrylic holder seems very reasonable to me, considering the obvious quality of the acrylic!

I have a similar shaped holder made of metal mesh that I found at Target in the office supply section. I think it was $8.

I like the looks of it and wish I could see it in person. I am using a small rectangular basket that I found at Michael's when their baskets were 50%. It's only about two inches high which is really nice and I just have my blocks standing up in it. For now, this works for me. (I always seem to be changing my mind.) I also have the binder page that your blocks can stick to. The only problem is that they stick too well!

Well I checked it out and I just had to get it. It will be perfect for my increasing collection of blocks. I thought the price was reasonable and I also ordered a grid acrylic block and a collection of smaller blocks. This weekend they are having a Cinco de Mayo shipping special and I only paid $ .99 for shipping. Ole'

I think something like this would be very handy and your desktop. But I agree with the other girls you can pick these up at Walmart,or any office supplies store. I have the CTMH organizer but its always a job to bring it out, open it up - too much work. I like this idea better, thanks for displaying it.

I have one and I really like it. It is quite heavy (as opposed to lightweight, flimsy), molded acrylic with nice smooth edges and holds all my collection of blocks, etc. The price listed on this website is lower than what I paid, so I would say it is a good deal. Go for it!!!!!

I use something bigger but the same concept, it's called the sticker stadium, but I store all kinds of things in it.
