Stowing my Secret Identity Papers...

The mail here was in such disarray I thought there was no hope for us! Piles piles everywhere. What were we to do? It sounds like a job for.... The Masked Mommy!

So I started coming up with an idea of how to build a mail sorter out of cereal boxes. Then I remembered that we're not in college anymore, and due to my lack of time I could just buy something... if I had to. However, I was grossly discouraged from the selection at most stores. Ugly. plastic. junk. Then Michael's had a 1/2 off sale on this beauty! I got it for $12!

But it probably won't hold everything... so here are some DIY paper sorters I'm considering making..

Knowing me, I'll still end up making something out of cereal boxes :-)

WOW that is snazzy!

I like the idea of making something with cereal boxes. But you would have to show me how. I am not very creative. As one blogger cutely said today, she thinks we like seeing inside each others messy places. That's what keeps us coming back. I like your blog theme.

I love these ideas! And you have a very nice blog as well.

Thanks for stopping by my place!

Cereal boxes might work.

I love the cereal box idea- you are one smart masked mommy!:) I know you will find what you are looking for.

You have a very clever blog-very original.

I'll be knocking at your back door again for a visit- thanks for making me smile this morning:)

I will return to your blog to see the cereal box creation. Okay, I will return, even if you don't use cereal boxes. :)
