Paper is one of the largest contributors to clutter around the house. Messages, birthday invitations, recipes, coupons, receipts, school art projects, and business cards can really pile up and make your space look messy if you don't have a designated spot for all of it. Some things should be filed away or pitched, but we all need a place to jot down notes and tack up reminders from time to time. These clever ways to make a memo board are simple and inexpensive; some even make use of thrift or upcycled items you may have around the house already.
