We have a little counter nook in between our pantry and fridge that is perfect for a mail station. It's relatively hidden so the piles of crap shouldn't bother me quite as bad. Especially since it will be a place actually dedicated to mail, keys, sunglasses, etc. Real people need places to drop their crap, am I right?
Once upon a time this counter space was a little coffee nook. It had our regular coffee maker as well as our Keurig machine. After a little rearranging a few months back, it wasn't a coffee nook any longer but it still housed our Keurig. I tucked that under the counter (because we only use it for guests usually) and this is what the space was looking like.
That's when I took a little trip to T.J. Maxx in search of a mail organizer. A place like T.J. can be hit or miss, luckily I found exactly what I was looking for.
The organizer has two large slots, perfect for mail, receipts, and important papers.
And yes, I said receipts. My husband is one of those
I but a small plate in front for B.J.'s wallet and keys and a basket for sunglasses and headphones. There's also a charger here for our phones or iPad.
So far I'm loving our new mail station. B.J. said I can't make it too pretty or he'll forget the mail is even there. Can't let that happen. Pin It
