If there is one thing my home needs, it's a mail station.I have piles of mail sorted as "mail out", "pay this", and "file away"! But it's unorganized. This little station has to be the most genius thing. It's slim, extremely organized, and cute-to-boot! Just wait until you see the inside!
Our mail inevitably ends up in a massive pile on the little desk in our kitchen. It grows and grows and, needless to say, we avoid that area like the plague. I wonder if having an adorable mail basket holder like this one would make the chore of sorting through it more enjoyable? Maybe??
First up to bat is Noodlehead's darling mail organizer:
Mail. MWT has a thing about it. It must be sorted and 'dealt with' as soon as it comes into the house. I agree, but sometimes I don't want to be bothered, which is why I let him handle it. When I saw Bright and Blithe's DIY mail sorter, I thought, 'Maybe I should make him one.' And then I thought, 'Naw.' It's still a cool idea, however. Especially for busy family types with a mud room. Can't you just picture it in a mud room?
You gotta love that MoMA store: always beautiful, and often useful.
