Mail, mail go away...come again another day!

After being fed up with counter clutter I came up with an easy solution....clip boards. I don't know about you but my counters were always cluttered with bills, catalogs, coupons, and more. I found an easy way to organize my families clutter.
 I went to office max and bought 4 standard size clip boards for under $2.00 each. and 2 mini clip boards for under $1.00. I searched through my scrapbook paper and found some paper that matched my window treatments. I also found some Mod Podge
I cut the paper to the size of the clip boards, brushed on a generous amount of Mod Podge and the clip boards were ready to be hung up.
I chose to put mine in the laundry room which is just off of our mudroom. 
The clip boards hold the following. 
  • Family Calendar
  • Coupons
  • Kid's Schedule
  • Bills
  • Stamps
I love how they turned out. We no longer have cluttered counters. I am one happy mommy!

Before the boards get covered with our clutter
I love the mini boards. Below the mini board is a canvas that Big G painted for me.

A friend of mine posted a great tutorial about organizing homework clutter. Check it out. She is also doing a giveaway this week for a wetbag...woohoo.
