From large office to small cubicle. Need advice about organizing. *Updated

From the title you would think I was demoted but I actually got a promotion (received the promotion 6 months ago, however, I am just now getting to move to a different office/location). 

Anyways, I am use to having a large desk with lots of storage and work space as well as bookshelves, storage space, and space in general in my office. My cubicle at my new location is about 1/8 of my office. Luckily, I will be leaving behind about 2 years worth of work and resources. I have a little bit of storage space for binders, desk essentials on/above my desk, however, none below. I might be able to fit some type of organizer in my cubicle, but it would have to be small. Any creative ways to organize and work in a small space?

Thanks, everyone for the advice/links. When I went to work the next day, they had moved somethings out of my cubicle which opened up more space and they gave me a two drawer filing cabinet! I do plan on getting one of the over the wall file folder holders to help with organizing current projects.

Sorry not clicky.  I saw the hanging stuff a few years ago in my commercial design classes- you can hang or attach things to the walls of the cubicle and increase your storage space vertically.  Also, anything you can make digital, do.  A usb or disk takes up less space than a file or binder :)

I just google 'small cubicle organization' & clicked images.

I believe the website for that one was thedailymuse.com.
