Kitchen Catch-All: Solution to a Messy Counter

I don’t know if your home is like Boyd Street’s…

but somehow keys, mail, magazines, grocery lists and heaven knows what else always seem to land on the small kitchen island.  No matter how hard I try to organize and clean each day, it still looks like a mess.

But… the other day while shopping in the office section at Walmart, I came upon what I think is a great solution!

"Kitchen Catch-All"

It’s made of canvas, has metal grommets and hooks and is made to be hung on the wall or as I did here, on the side of an island or desk.  Not too bad for $14!  There are pockets for magazines, bills, grocery lists, and hooks for keys, etc.

I really think someone “handy” could make their own.  If I had my rathers, the bottom pockets would be deeper to hold a business size envelope vertically and the large compartment could have ties on the side to expand or hold items tightly.  Could have been a brighter color, too 🙂

But for now . . .

the messy counter has been eliminated.  Will let you know how long this lasts!  Do you have special ways to keep your counter tops clean?  Would love to hear about them!

Cheers…
