Dollarama Tech Finds: Silver Crest Desk Organizer

Finding the ultimate desk organizer can be challenging, but wait a minute – Dollarama sells these handy gadgets for only $4 and there’s lots of compartments! 

This thing is sweet. I’ve already fallen in love with it.

What the back of the box says: 

3 USB ports, smartphone/tablet holder fits most standard devices and features an access point for a charging cable 

Various compartment sizes for office supplies 

Multi functional and compact

Includes USB-A to USB-3.0 cable (approx. 1m) 

Thoughts upon opening the box: The plastic feels weird, but it looks great and it’s definitely solid. Seems to be durable, convenient and it’s absolutely thrilling for someone like me who likes to try and keep everything in its place. I started liking it more and more once I knew two of my devices charged properly.

Other stores sell these products, but they don’t look anything like this one and they are way more expensive. This is crazy! My desk sometimes looks like a dungeon, so this setup should organize everyone’s problems.

This product is very well priced for the quality and durability that it offers. It’s especially cheap for students, entrepeneurs, people working from home and the tidy ones that like a clean work station. 

The two black plastic pieces are probably for the size of your smartphone chargers, but since there are no instructions, I can’t be sure.  When installing, you want to pull the cord up from the bottom and wrap it where the opening is, then press down and insert. 

I ended up using my iPhone charger in the smartphone spot rather then trying to charge it with USB out.

I have successfully charged my FitBit and book light so far, but I don’t know about an iPad or laptop. I think smaller devices would work best. This does make the product misleading because on the box it shows that you can charge your laptop and tablet, but these options do not work for me. Storing your iPad at the back seems like a better idea to me. I’ve added a sticky pad, some pens, paper clips and so much more in these handy compartments.

If you are looking for a small desk organizer, this might be the one for you!
