Mail, Mail, Go Away!

I feel like the clutter that's in my house is mostly due to mail that I have not tended to yet. I'm not always Johnny on the Spot, so if I haven't taken care of it yet, I can't throw it out right away....that brings up the question of "where do I put loose mail??"

It usually ends up in a few different places, which can cause some confusion and "old lady brain" from not remembering where I put something.

Well, today I implemented a solution! I got a 2-tiered hanging basket from TJMaxx for only $12! Love it there. I put it on a small wall space in my kitchen, so it's easily accessible, and I know I'll walk by it multiple times a day.

I think it will be a great problem-solver. I love that it has 2 tiers so I can keep a to-do list and my new return address stamp handy for when I need them!

Return Addresses Can Be Your Friend

Sorry it's been WAY too long since I've posted something...We've been busy with the dog, work, our 1 year anniversary cruise (!), etc.

So I've mentioned before that I work at a stationery/gift shop called PlainJane Designs, and I just got an order in for something that is changing the way I send mail!

We have a vendor called PSA Essentials and they specialize in stamps. I decided to jump on their bandwagon and I ordered a return address stamp from our store. I love it!! Here is a picture of the design I got (it's not my address, but it's an example of what mine looks like):

 Let me know if you're interested in ordering one! It makes personal notes and even bills that much more pleasant. Thank you PlainJane!
