DIY Wall Organizers are a fantastic way to get rid of the paper and mail clutter that might be taking over your countertops and tables. They are stylish and easy to make! Here are six really cool diy wall organizers.
Most of us have that infamous “stack” of mail, magazines and whatever else sitting somewhere. Whether it’s the kitchen counter, the entryway table, the mudroom, the living room coffee table. It’s there. Hello.
Actually it’s funny because I have a tendency to put all our stuff away, hidden in drawers. Then, we end up forgetting about the stuff in there. Whoops! Or a month goes by and my hubs will say – “where is that letter that was sitting here on the counter?” Oh, whoops!
We need an easier way!
DIY Wall Organizers for Extra Storage
I like the idea of a wall organizer because it keeps “the pile” off your counters. And these are stylish enough that you don’t have to mind hanging them somewhere. You could even hang them on the back of a door so you can close it out of sight.
Or hang it on the inside of a cabinet – the smaller ones. I actually used to store takeout menus in a pocket folder (like this) that I secured to the inside of the cabinet. It was really handy. I should do that again. Check out some other great ideas below!
