52 Week Home Organizing Challenge: Project 1!

I decided to start out simple... I knew that we really wanted to have a better place to put mail, other than our table in the entryway. It looked tacky, always got too cluttered, and we continually lost mail that way. SO, I decided to look around Pinterest a little bit to find something that would work well on our little wall. Here's what I came up with! :)


And after!:

I put up two cheapo baskets (that I got on clearance from BB&B), added some labels and design, and then put up some fun decorations around it. Here's a close-up of the baskets (one labeled "junk mail" and one labeled "bills/immediate"):

I saw this really cute little framed "I love you because..." on Pinterest, so I added one of those in also. :) Use dry-erase markers... they really do rub off completely!

Fun fun!

  1. Angela - I posted a comment last week, but have discovered that I didn't do it right so it didn't stick. What I wanted to say is > I love this first project of yours! Can't wait to see what you do next. The 52 Week Challenge is just the kind of structured motivation I always need in order to be productive. BTW, I checked out Pinterest and ended up browsing for a LONG time. So glad you're blogging again. ~Mom Z
