Reorganize: Mail Mess

Despite my fairly organized tendencies, there is one dreaded spot in my apartment that is always a hot mess…

The mail area. My system of dumping everything on the dining table was resolved with a few storage solutions with the exception of a place to put mail. A glorified Target wooden fruit bowl does not do the trick, let me tell you.

After reading through the Young House Love book, I was inspired to come up with a new system.

Behold: adhesive cork and brass thumbtacks on the side of the fridge:2014-01-22 18.36.05      2014-01-22 18.36.092014-01-22 18.36.14      2014-01-24 19.14.55 2014-01-24 19.16.14

And a quick DIY project:

Had an empty frame and fabric samples from Caitlin Wilson Textiles so I made a memo board for the fridge and stuck it with 3M velcro picture hangers! Much better than having random sticky notes and to do lists scattered around the apartment.
