Stapler works by attaching file uploads to database table records. This is done by defining attachments inside the table’s corresponding model and then assigning uploaded files (from your forms) as properties (named after the attachments) on the model before saving it. Stapler will listen to the life cycle callbacks of the model (after save, before delete, and after delete) and handle the file accordingly. In essence, this allows uploaded files to be treated just like any other property on the model; stapler will abstract away all of the file processing, storage, etc so you can focus on the rest of your project without having to worry about where your files are at or how to retrieve them.

This seems brilliant. Take a look at the examples as well.
