Advice on a wood project

I am looking for some innovative ideas along the lines of the normal Mail sorter / holder / bill organizer. But I need to have it more efficient than a 3 slot wooden bin hung on the wall or sat on the table. All ideas will be considered....this is a home use project so I can get my financial life back in some kind of symmetry, or more organized at least. What we have now:

Thank you all for your suggestions...I am thinking about this carefully. I will have the "job" for a long time and may need to help my Mom with her finances soon too *sigh*

What size would you like it to be, and what type of wood working do you like ex (colonial, Victorian, modern, or retro)?

Oh this need not be fancy in any way, functional mostly, and in my apt. it can not be as big as a car for instance, nor alter the walls with paint or nails any. Still I would like to keep a months worth of bills "available and organized.

... nor alter the walls with paint ...

Paint over the magnetic paint with the walls' original colour, they'll never know.

Do you mean something like this ? Magnetic Paint...

The Living room is out, and the hall way, both paneled.

It really is time to free up an area where I can get close to a wall...OR I could maybe use the side of my new computer armoire (like this but in veneer)

That's the stuff!

Maybe |I can do something with the inside of the Amoire :-)
I use one of these. Haven't had a late bill since the anthrax scare of 'ought one, dagnabit.

I was kind of thinking of that with my conversation with Sedgewick, either upwards or on the side.
What? you expect me to RTFT? ;-)
