What Houzz contributors are saying:

A red dish-drying rack serves as a file organizer and pencil holder.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Affordable Finds for College and Beyond
Get thrifty by using a cheap dish rack for file organization. Paint it a fun color for a bold statement all your own.
Think outside the filing cabinet: Here, a dish rack gets reimagined as a file and pencil holder by blogger Cozy Little House.
A spray painted dish drainer is reborn as a desktop organizer.
Tiffany Carboni added this to Create a Study Space the Kids Will Love
Organizers don't have to cost an arm and a leg. They can even be borrowed from other rooms in the house. Here the kitchen turned out a trove of desk supplies. A drying rack is used as a file folder rack and pencil holder. A pitcher holds larger tools, like scissors and rulers. Mugs and vases make great containers for pens and crayons.
Dressed Nest Interiors added this to Outside the Box: 18 Unconventional Storage Solutions
Use a dish drainer to sort mail and the attached silverware cup to store pens. It works as well as any specialty sorter and is incredibly budget friendly.
