In our perpetual quest to keep our lives a bit more organized, we frequently find ourselves scouring IKEA’s “new products”—a treasure trove of budget-friendly space savers that’ll work in any place. The latest gem we stumbled upon is the Fagning magazine file, and this nifty organizer isn’t just functional, it adds a touch of visual interest thanks to its curvy construction. Made from sturdy powder-coated metal, it’s a steal at just $13.

Fagning Magazine File, IKEA, $13

What immediately caught our attention is its clever design, featuring multiple ribbonlike slots that can turn any tabletop into a clutter-free zone by corralling magazines, notebooks, and papers. And here’s the fun part: Because it’s made of steel, you can personalize it with pictures and notes, easily affixed with magnets.
But that’s not all; the countertop filing system is a true multitasker. It can moonlight as a chic vase for dried flowers or stems that couldn’t care less about water. It can transform your messy entry console by taking on the role of mail holder. And for the home chefs among us, it’s a slick spot for gathering kitchen utensils. With the Fagning magazine file, IKEA once again proves that keeping things tidy and stylish can be easy on the wallet.
