My wife wants me to make her a mail organizer for her desk. Do y’all have any pics or good ideas?

You mean like a bill organizer?

I really like this one but my wife wants something a little more simple.
She’s looking for something with dividers for 4 weeks.

My wife had me make one that had 2 bays that hangs on the wall. Both bays are sized to hold business envelopes. I misplaced my camera, so if I find it I will try to get a snapshot.

Its just a tall back with 3 tapered dividers (2 end caps and 1 in the middle) and the front piece is a 1/2” shorter than a standard business envelope. She has some organization system that involves standing them up or putting them in length wise.

She seems really happy with the outcome/system.

I like that one a lot, but I have that model already and she wants something a little nicer.
