One critical element in a successful marriage is the key bowl. Yes, you heard right. The key bowl is where you put your keys when you get home from work, and wallet, bills to be paid, outgoing mail and whatever else is important to deal with right away. It's a great organizational tool, and a nice work of art besides.
Today, while spending a wedding gift card at Target, I found a really nice rubber wood key bowl. It cost only $10, and will pay for itself right away in keeping things organized and helping get bills paid on time.
Sure, key bowls aren't for everyone. Some people like chaos, disorganization, clutter, searching frantically for important papers. Some people also thrive on crisis. They like daily drama.
I am not one of those people. I love the key bowl and think it deserves a prominent place in every home.
