I literally was scratching my head when it came to what kind of setup I wanted to do to organize our incoming mail, keys and junk we hall in everytime we come home. I have a cute little wall key holder my good friend Paige gave me not to long ago from Ruche (no longer available) for my keys. I received the Schoolhouse Numbered Hooks from Pottery Barn for my birthday from Ian for our coats, hats, purses, etc. Oh and then there's the mail! We get tons of mail and I really don't know why. Everything from junk mail and magazines to things I've ordered or doctor bills. We have a small ledge at the end of our stairs that has become the dumping ground when we walk in the condo. It has really started to bother me and get out of hand that I finally started searching high and low for organizing options. I thought about making a full on mail center, but we rarely send mail out so that would defeat the purpose. All we needed was something to store incoming mail until I had a chance to look through it. I came across this wall basket organizer from Pottery Barn, but for the dimensions, plus the price with shipping on top of that it was a little too much for something like that in my opinion, even though I know when you buy from PB your getting quality. But then I eventually came across the Ryan Wire Baskets from World Market. The dimensions even for the medium size (they come in 2 sizes) was bigger than the PB option and the price plus a coupon and the shipping made it affordable. So I ordered one thinking, given the dimensions, I would only need one! I got it in last week and it is awesome! Very well made and sturdy and will go great on the wall for mail. Plus the finish on it will match my key holder and the PB numbered hooks a lot better. I decided to order another one and designate one for me and one for Ian. So if your looking for something similar for your mail or office then I recommend these!
Anyone have these already? What do you do with all your mail? Have a cool mail center? Please share! xoxo, Kayleigh.
