I've been on a home organising mission lately, whipping my pantry and fridge into shape with kitchen organisation products and even finding storage solutions for our bedrooms and small bathrooms. Even with switching to paperless for most bills, our weekly mail sorting can feel out of control without a system in place. I used to stack it as neatly as possible in a tray, but a mountain of envelopes can only stack so high, and it's still impossible to find anything. When I discovered Target's Metal & Faux Leather Mail Sorter ($20) from the Hearth & Hand by Magnolia collection, I realised there's actually a simple solution to keeping mail organised.
What I Love About Target's Metal & Faux Leather Mail Sorter
The mail sorter is strikingly stylish. It reminds me of those midcentury brass and leather slings people fill with magazines or firewood, only miniature and with two slings instead of one. It's definitely just as much a decorative piece as it is an organising essential, and that's of course, what I love about it. I purchased it online and wasn't sure if the quality would hold up in person, but it actually looks expensive. The faux leather is beautifully textured and caramel coloured with a matte finish — I wouldn't even know it's faux — and the brass pairs perfectly. Before purchasing it, I noticed that it racked up tons of positive reviews online, which always helps me when I'm on the fence with a purchase. It has 84 reviews and a 4.9 rating, which means 90 percent of reviewers gave it a perfect five stars. Now that I have it in my home, I can see why.
What's Worth Noting About Target's Metal & Faux Leather Mail Sorter
Its dimensions are 5 inches (height) x 6.12 inches (width) x 8 inches (diameter), so it's petite. It's definitely not ideal for organising larger items like manila envelopes or catalogueues. You'll want a filing cabinet for those. It's much more suited for standard envelopes. I love that the two separate slings allow you to organise it in different ways, like incoming and outgoing mail, or opened and unopened mail, urgent mail and nonurgent mail, you get the idea.
Who Is Target's Metal & Faux Leather Mail Sorter Best For?
This mail sorter is best for someone who wants their office or entryway to feel organised, minimal, and aesthetically pleasing. If you have a weakness for midcentury design and love the texture and look of leather but don't want to spend a fortune on something this small, you'll be happy with this $20 choice.
