Four Smart Ways to Organize Mail

If your front hallway table is hard to find under the piles of coupons and credit card offers, try one of these easy ways to organize your mail. It's the easiest way to spring clean!
For more details, visit:
Go Paperless. If your mailbox is eternally filled with bills, it might be time to go paperless. Doing this is easy – just ask your bank, cable company and other bill-giving services how to sign up for it.
Use Old Shutters. This project is as simple as hang and use! You can make your own system or just stick your loose mail in the slates – either way, it will look better than a scattered pile on the table.
Repurpose Paint Cans. If you've recently painted a room or two, you probably have a couple of old paint cans lying around. Use them to organize your mail! Paint "in" or "out" on the cans or simply slap a sticky note on the front.
Eliminate Junk Mail. Every year, the average household gets nearly 800 pieces of junk mail. Don't you wish there was an easier way to stop the never-ending stream of snail mail spam? Turns out there is, and it's called PaperKarma.

    My brother used to do that too @Leslie D only he'd add washers in for the extra weight.
