Mail Station

I was reading Real Living Magazine recently and came across this nifty organising idea:

Mail Station

This is great for sorting mail, but I also think it could be ideal for organising kids schoolwork, notes etc.

With a shelf and a few magazine holders you can create a space for mail and accessories. Simply purchase 3 magazine holders from IKEA and attach to a shelf to make your own mail station.

What an awesome idea! Thanks for sharing it. I was only discussing the need for a better mail system 2 days ago. I might have to give this idea a go. 🙂

Thank you for sharing this! I actually bought a crappy cardboard mail organiser recently as I ws desperate for some kind of system but couldn’t find what I really wanted in the shops. Now I can make my own. 🙂

With only two adults in the house (the kids only get Birthday mail) you would think we would be more organised! Nope!! I have a metal frame magazine holder so I might dig that out and pop it somewhere so the mail is kept together (and not all over my kitchen bench) and the Mr will take note!!!

Thanks for sharing Katrina.
