Day 18 – Organize the junk box

Today’s project – organize the junk box

We have a box at the front door that is supposed to hold mail, keys, bike stuff etc – but more often than not it is full of crap. I don’t think cleaning it out tonight is the solution and I will likely have to do this every few weeks, but at least it is a start. I emptied the box, found the lose papers and other items worth keeping and then threw the rest away.

I had a small accordion file folder hanging around that was perfect for the job. I sorted the mail and loose papers into categories and made labels – taxes, insurance, banking, credit cards, cheques, warranties etc. It is crazy how much more organized I feel.


The whole project was super fast and only took about 15-20 minutes.
