Easy Stationery Organization

I've been looking for something to keep my stationery organized in my desk.  I finally found two cute red bins in Marshall's.  They were the perfect size to fit into my computer desk.

This one holds my envelopes and note pads.  I'm a list person, I like note pads.
 
I put my cards in this bin. 
 
These bins were $12 each, which was a bit more than I wanted to pay.  However, they were the perfect size, very sturdy, and they have handles on each side.  I like that, because sometimes I drag a bin to the couch or the kitchen table when I go to write out cards.

Plus, I really liked the red color.
 
I decided that my bins needed labels.  So I took out my handy tag punch that I've been using lately, and made simple labels. 

Are you a "card" person?  Do you like to send or receive cards?

I am not really a card person but have to admit I love boxes. I always did.
I like to keep things in boxes. It's a great way to keep the clutter at bay.

I've seen those at Marshall's and hadn't thought to store stationary. Perfect!

That's so nice and organized! I'm a card person too--I keep them in hat boxes, but I do like your red bins!

Cute! Yes, I send and receive cards, especially since we moved from Texas to New Jersey this year.

Nice. I love red, too! Sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do. I am also a list person. Maybe I need a list-bin as well? I'll put it on my list! Heh. I know. Sorry. Thanks for linking up! I love seeing you there each week!
