Organizing Mail Supplies

Hello!  Sorry for my absence around here lately!  With summer ending and school beginning, we have been in go-go-go mode!!  I'm so happy to be back here sharing with you today though!

Something that seems to get spread all over the place in houses are mailing supplies.  So today I am going to give you a quick peek at how I keep everything organized around here.

I have a drawer in my office that is devoted to mailing supplies.  It is so nice when I need to mail something that I know exactly where to go and don't have to dig through multiple drawers trying to find an envelope, card or stamp!

At the front of the drawer I have two orange file folders.  The front one keeps our return address labels and stamps.  The second one holds my address book-not that it needs a folder, but it just keeps it from flopping open in the drawer and keeps it right up front for easy access.

I used a cheap little basket that I have had for years to put bulk cards in.

And I absolutely love my card organizer that I got from The Container Store several years ago!

On the right I have a box of regular business envelopes and some bigger mailing envelopes as well.

Simple enough, right?  But such a time saver (and headache saver) when I need to get something in the mail quickly! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
