After 5 months in our home, papers were beginning to pile up on our kitchen island. Ty and I, being obsessively particular, started getting brain aneurysms every time we walked into the kitchen. We desperately needed a filing system to keep bills and coupons out of sight. Clutter = sin. Yes, I know I'm dramatic. After several trips to Homegoods, Target, and Amazon.com looking for a minimalist, simple system; I decided to work with a an old magazine rack I purchased at IKEA years ago. This new filing systems works very well for us.
IKEA magazine rack $16.99
1. Use the label maker to come up with 6 categories to suit your filing needs. You can see our category selections below.
2. Peel off the film on the label strips and place on the magazine rack as shown below.
This was literally the easiest DIY project I've ever done. So easy, I'm not even sure if it's blog worthy. But here you go.
There you have it! Worlds easiest DIY. Thanks for reading, our full office tour will be up soon!
