I've been meaning to clean out our "office" for quite some time. It's not really an office... it's actually just a closet off the guest bedroom that happens to be fairly large, and we took down the closet bar and stuck a desk in it. But it has A/C vents and electric outlets and everything, so it's almost like it was intended to be a mini-office rather than a closet!
Prior to today, the "office" was getting a little out of hand. We let it become a dumping ground for computer stuff, sewing stuff, gift wrap & gift bags, camping gear, office supplies, holiday decorations, Jeff's suits, and more. It ceased to be at all functional some time ago.
Jeff's gone on a business trip right now, which means I'm being super-productive! Yesterday, I cranked up my Pandora playlist and tackled the office right when I got home from school.
Can you even see the desk back there? Ahhh! It was impossible to even walk in!
Look, suits! Haha. And a shelf full of camping stuff and holiday decorations! And a printer buried in junk!
Ahhh disorganized shelves!
Yeah... it was driving me crazy. I moved Jeff's suits to our coat closet, and I found a new home for the camping stuff under the bed in the guest room, and then I just went through everything and threw away some things and organized everything else. SO much better now!
Look! Organized! Also... I had no idea we had that many Post-its! Haha.
LOOK YOU CAN SEE THE FLOOR!!!
LOOK YOU CAN SEE THE DESK!!!
I even organized the shelves at the top of the room...
This corner houses all of our (non-Christmas and Fall) holiday decorations. I'll be getting out the Easter box pretty soon!
My sewing machine and sewing box are finally in an easily accessible place! I'm using "easily accessible" fairly liberally... they're easily accessible if you stand on the swivel chair. :o)
This is the technology graveyard. Two old laptops with all of their accessories, one old printer, one old keyboard, and one old set of fancy computer speakers. I have NO IDEA why we're keeping all of this, but you can't just throw away a laptop! Haha.
Now I just need to decide if I should hang those bulletin boards above the desk or find something artsy to go there instead. Decisions, decisions...
