We have an issue around here...we're short on time and space. It's a pretty common issue, but we are trying our best to get around it and to work within our parameters. We need a place to collect our mail. I don't mind sorting it, but Husband pays the bills and is incredibly meticulous about filing things and keeping worthless papers that we'll never need. Oops...came out sounding more ridiculous than I meant!
Anyway, we have been trying to figure out what to do and, believe it or not, our best solution for the past few months has been a cardboard box on a counter in our kitchen. Does that make us white trash? I don't think so...but it's close! We have been coveting something from a particular store for a while. It's too expensive and the shipping charges are outrageous. That's why we never ordered it. However, you get to a point in your life where the inconvenience outweighs the cost issues...we were totally there. So, I swallowed my pride, I placed an order, paid the outrageous shipping, and hopefully anticipated the delivery of our mail organization system.
Here it is (God, I wish the walls were painted, but they're not...oh well): I love it...it was totally worth it...we have more counter space and now we're less likely to lose things. Thank God! By the way, we're still keeping up with this too! I am finally starting to feel like things have their place. It's about time...we've only lived here for 5 years!!!!
