I have a huge pet peeve of "stuff" sitting by the back door when we walk in each day. I have tried and tried to think of a place/way for Nathan to organize his keys, wallet, receipts, shoes... and anything else that is possibly dropped at the door.
I moved this cart over by the door awhile back, but when we got home the other day I noticed it literally had stacks of papers and receipts. The wallet, keys and coins had spread over to the bookshelf by the door. Ahhhhh... I can't stand it!
I sorted through and re-organized everything. Nathan now has a little silver tray to put his wallet and keys. Inside one of the draws is space for coins and receipts. I have a tray on the counter for mail and am hoping if I keep up with it daily it will not turn into a mound of paper again! :)
