In my opinion, being organized makes life a million times easier. That's why I fell in love the minute I spotted the Daily System at Pottery Barn. I debated for ages about it since it was so pricey. After putting it in my cart online and taking it out numerous times, I finally went for it. And I couldn't love it more. My husband and I can track each other's schedules and figure out what needs to be done so much easier now. Plus, we finally have a place to store our "stuff". You know what "stuff" I am talking about. Bills, coupons, school papers, important phone numbers, spare keys, etc. Instead of having to dig thru drawers, it's all right there at our fingertips! And so neatly organized. Amazing. If you are trying to decide on this piece, I say go for it. You won't regret it.
