Hey Everyone! How are we doing so far? I’d like to share something with you. See, I receive mails almost every day. At the end of the month, I usually discover a pile of accumulated mails from the credit card companies, bills from the telecommunications department and notices from other sorts of shops about their promos and offered freebies. The bad thing about it is I tend to misplace all the important mails because of the disorganized piles of envelop on the table. This problem has bugged me for a long time and I was finding it hard to find a good solution in the easiest way possible until I read one blog which presented just the idea that I needed. The solution: Wall Mounted Mail Organizer!
Ashley, the blog writer, had the same experience as me, and well, I was glad to know I am not alone. I admit, I that I’m really strict when it comes to organizing my home but if there are time constraints sometimes everything well gets out of hand! Making a wall mounted mail organizer was indeed an answer to my problem. As soon as I got my day off from work, I started doing this project. I had my friend help me sort out all the mails and group them according to the type and the sender. Then I used a thick fabric and sewed expandable pockets on it. I placed two pockets per row and since it has six compartments, there are two columns in all. I labeled each pocket according to the type of mail it would contain. The author suggested embroidery lettering for the labels but I merely used fabric paint because I prefer to do so. In about a couple of hours, my wall mounted mail organizer was prepared and I finally hang it on a wall near my work table. Now, every time I receive mails, I could easily place them on the pockets where they belong!
I’d like to thank, Ashley of makeit-loveit.com, for such another inspiring share! I hope you guys where able to understand how to keep a process on things as this will not only make our lives easier but enjoyable too!
