Yesterday, I shared with you this handy project I made from scrap wood to organize our mail.
I’ve definitely decided that sorting my mail is one of the keys to keeping myself organized. It’s a minor but important stress reliever to know that I’m not missing anything important. My DIY mail organizer project generated a lot of interest, making me realize that I’m not the only one who struggles with knowing what to do with the piles of paper my mailbox (or elementary school) produces. Just in case my version doesn’t meet your needs or style preference, I’ve found 5 additional tutorials for mail and office organizers to share with you this weekend. Happy New Year and happy organizing!
1. Messages with Mail
This multi-purpose station made by Shanty 2 Chic puts all the important things in one spot: mail, messages, and keys. It looks super stylish but the tutorial says that it’s a cinch to build.
2. Industrial Baskets
These nifty wall-baskets with an industrial vibe didn’t start out looks quite so on-trend. These were just basic plastic-coated wire caddies before A House Full of Sunshine transformed them with paint and chalkboard labels.
3. DIY Magazine Rack
This wall shelf creates a place to sort and store things magazine-rack style. Vintage News Junkie shares the plans.
4. Ikea Hack Mail Rack
This ingenious organizer is made out of things you can easily find at Ikea or any home goods store, really. I like that it gives you a little shelf space, too–making it great for small spaces. Check out the tutorial at Instructables.
5. Old Book Organizer
I love the idea to repurpose old books to create a magazine-rack style rack created by Beyond the Picket Fence. It’s a fun twist on a traditional organizer.
