Sometimes organizing is trial and error. Sometimes you just get it right. This problem area has seen both scenarios, but I’m happy to say I think I finally figured it out! When I saw this cute basket at Hobby Lobby I couldn’t pass it up. I’m not sure I entirely knew what I was doing with it, but it didn’t take long to decide!
It’s really a mess right now, but this is real life! 😉 I use it to corral those papers and things that need to be taken downstairs. Our stairway door is just to the right of this space. The basket is narrow enough to go on this wall without fear of someone walking into it and getting hurt coming around the corner, yet deep enough to hold more than a stack of papers.
That’s Mya photo-bombing. 😉
When it gets full (like it is NOW), then I take everything down and sort it. This has kept all but some larger items off the kitchen counters and table. Typically I don’t have things bulging out the top like it is now, but again, being real with y’all, and this is how it’s been this week.
I worked on some other mini-organizing projects that I’ll share in the next few days. Tonight is Faith’s 1st Communion dress rehearsal, so I have a veil to steam!
