Office organization so close to complete!

Filed under: heart, home — fairyguts @ 11:20 pm

I have finally organized my desk. The bookshelf looks great. The office supplies are organized. Baby-proofing has been done.  I have just two things to do (not counting my husband’s desk or my sewing closet) and the office is DONE!!  Woo-hoo!!

The desk finally got fully reorganized because Robin kept trying to get under the table to play with the cables and power strip for my computer. We ended up putting the computer up on the desk. I wish we had another alternative, but this was the only way it would work for us right now. But, it’s over where it’s hard for me to get to anyway, so the majority of the accessible desk top is clear and ready for projects!

I ended up changing my desktop filing system from the one I showed months ago because the files wouldn’t sit straight and I couldn’t fit my Project Life cards in it very nicely. I switched to a different basket and made a container out of cardboard for the cards. Using a $.99 napkin holder from Goodwill, I coral my files and I keep it all restrained and portable on a fun tray someone gave me.

Another trick I’ve done that deals with photos is the customizable stamp also seen on the tray. I put my, my husband’s and son’s names on it so when I print my monthly batch of pictures I can just stamp them all with our names. I cross out the name of anyone who’s not in the picture and write in anybody else while I add the date.

And, for a taste of the future, the last two things to do before the office is completely considered done are:

1) Clean off the serger (including mending and doing the 3 new projects that have accumulated)

2) Refinish my chair! ICK!!

  1. WOW! That looks awesome! Having everything organized will probably make it easier to get fun projects done.

  2. […] I never said, but I finished my file organizing!  Now, all I have are four files that I keep on my office tray and use immediately after getting paperwork to file.  I think I felt like I wasn’t done, […]
