I moved to a different part of Charlotte at the end of last summer and yes, I'm still trying to get organized. I typically keep things pretty neat, but since the move I feel like things have gotten a little less organized (it might help if I would unpack the last 3 boxes). One thing that I really wanted to organize was my coffee table. I usually keep my coffee table books on top and some other books and magazines (I have subscriptions to Glamour, Essence, InStyle, ESPN The Magazine, and thanks to my best friend, Alexia, I will soon be getting Entrepreneur) on the bottom. Sometimes I get a bit busy and go a couple or 3 months without reading my magazines and they start to stack up. Lucky for me, I found this metal rack at Marshalls that I thought would be perfect for organizing my magazines and books (see that Bethenny Frankel book? I also found that at Marshalls).
The other thing that I needed to organize was my mail. I sometimes let my mail pile up on my desk all week and then go through it on the weekend. I usually end up with some papers that need to be filed (like insurance papers), some that I need to take action on (like bills), and some that I need to mail back out (like a RSVP to a wedding). I love this mail sorter that I found at Marshalls, because it has 3 baskets that are great for separating my mail and that will keep my desk from getting messy.
What are some of the things that you need to organize in your home or office? Have you come up with some creative ways to stay organized?
