i love to have an organized house. i love baskets for blankets, toys and towels. i love jars for pennies, pencils and pins.
on the otherhand...
i hate mail. well, except for home magazines and letters from friends. i hate that you have to do stuff with that, well, stuff.
i put it in a basket. usually. then twice a year that basket gets too full and then i must file it. yuck.
so maybe i should try to use something more unique for organization of mail. i liked this idea from martha:
it could be cottagey painted a nice green or blue. then maybe distress it. i could see it in my office organizing my different projects and ideas. i could see it used at christmas time for christmas cards.
how do you stay organized?
