MAIL

How do you organize the mail that is piling up on top of your foyer table or at the unused edge of your dining table?  You need to choose a system that will work best for you.

Whatever system you choose, make sure that it helps you categorize and take control of your mail. 

STORING SENTIMENTS

I am still on post-holiday de-cluttering mode and last night I tackled the Christmas cards I collected from last season.  I personally like keeping them all in a scrapbook so that I can go through them again someday (I guess this is a good way to check who remembers you throughout the years).

There are a lot of great scrapbook templates just for this purpose.

If you don’t like scrapbooking, then you can also create a Christmas card booklet with ordinary key rings and a puncher!

You can also upcycle your Christmas cards into a nice paper tree centrepiece! This is brilliant!

Or you can start early (really early!) and upcycle them into future Christmas ornaments.

Or how about making your own book marks?

You can also create a Greeting Card Prayer Box which is basically any box that holds all the Christmas cards that you received.  Then during family prayer time, you can pull out a card to pray for the person or family that sent it to you.

Good luck and may you find the perfect storage solution for all the greetings lovingly sent your way.
