I have a long history of buying things to help me get organized, but spending less time using said item than I did researching it. I'm happy to report that I haven't fallen into that trap this time! I can leave this unzipped for easy access, but it holds everything inside until I'm ready to go through the pile and put things where they're supposed to go (i.e., it was worth the money to not use a plastic baggie after all). This little trick has helped me stay a lot more organized, and I've happily not thrown away anything important since I started doing this, a rather common occurrence pre-pouch.
