I have a problem with mail storage. My mail always ends up in a big pile on the smaller of my two couches. It is currently sitting there, staring at me, saying "file me!" "recycle me!" "read me!" - and yet I do nothing. For weeks at a time, the pile grows on the little couch, because I rarely use that couch for seating. Then, if I have two or more guests over, I pile it all up into a pile in the corner, or MAYBE tackle it and file/recycle/read things. I think I just need a place to put mail that is not the couch. That will help me keep it in order, right?
I really like the shutter and grate ideas here, so now I may try to find one...any ideas?
