I think I'm facing a problem that most people face.
And I think that some people deal with this problem better than others.
My wife and I work 9-5 jobs.
When we arrive home, after a day at work, we're tired.
Sometimes, especially when we work overtime, we have just enough energy to cook dinner and watch a TV program before bed.
During the week, we accumulate newpapers, magazines, bills, mail, and other items.
Often, we promise ourselves to process and sort these items when we have either more time or more energy.
The unfortunate reality is: We often just put these items wherever it is most convenient at time. This means that mail piles up on a kitchen counter. Larger mail deliveries accumulate just inside the front door.
Where should these items go? Does IKEA manufacture an industrial strength inbox for all of this stuff that is to be processed later?
Yes, we typically sort and process these items on the weekend. But it just seems like other households manage their "inbox" better than we do.
Do we just need a big bin for all of this stuff?
Although we don't live in an overly large home, I don't think that a lack of space is our problem. Many people who live in small apartments appear to manage this problem much better than we do.
