How to Organize Shipping Supplies

As I'm going through the 14 Week Challenge by A Bowl Full of Lemons I find myself googling "How to organize shipping supplies."  I can't say I've found much inspiration so far, but I did find this helpful round up of stores to help you get organized & this blog sharing her recently organized spaces.

So far I'm thinking a couple wall-mounted magazine racks or "pockets" to hold shipping envelopes, a table top to package on and also hold the printer (or store it below the tabletop) to print shipping labels.

& then based on what inspiration I did find, I'm thinking...

Shallow drawers for the tools & small supplies (labeler, stamps, extra ink cartridges, packaging tape, scale etc) with clear drawer organizers.

Teal file folders for inside my newly-painted filing cabinet...

The more I daydream, the more I'm really loving the white on white palette.  I also thought the Martha Stewart teal + white is pretty swoon-worthy too.  (Does anyone else think she's a bit overpriced?)

What does your shipping or mail center look like?  Please inspire me with your ideas! ;)

  1. Oddly enough, I was just thinking about this. Usually, my shipping supplies are in a pile somewhere. I've managed to contain them to a cardboard box but would love to have something a little more attractive and organized! I'm curious what you come up with!

  2. Hi Liesl, so far I have the wall pockets to hold my shipping envelopes but we are still finishing the room where they will be hung, so no pictures yet. I promise to post an update once I have a system set in place + I'll be sure to link it up with this post. If you come up with something for your own system in the mean time, I'd love for you to share a link to it! :)
