Well, I finally got tired of this "OTHER stuff" being all over my kitchen counter, so I decided to reuse a little item I've had for a while now... in a closet! I just took this tin bucket and repurposed it. Instead of adding flowers and nailing it up on a wall or hanging it outside, I put in a little burlap (which didn't make it to the photo - sorry, afterthought!) and then applied a meaningful, Uppercase Living expression, to give the old bucket some new life and interest!
Now, this fun little holder hangs from a burlap ribbon on the door to our garage, which is in our kitchen, near the counter where the mail used to collect. I simply stuff the items inside, and we remove, use or toss those items as we get to them. It's a really pretty - and organized - alternative to those random paper stacks!
Now, THAT's neat!
