Our home has an office and yet somehow we rarely use it. Instead, this is my home “office”. It’s a corner of the kitchen counter and it is where I manage our world. Here is what it looks like on a good day. And yes, a parking ticket is usually somewhere in the jumble of bills, receipts, and statements. (Don’t judge me. If you lived in the city where you have to remember to move your car twice a week, on alternating weeks, to various sides of the road, at various times of the day, you would accumulate a few of these babies as well. I just try to work them into the budget now.)
Needless to say this “system” was not working for me, so I decided it was time to get organized. I pulled out my cute label gun and went to work. If you don’t have one of these, get one. It will change your life. But a warning to you: You might just be tempted to start putting bossy little labels on absolutely everything. Once you start, it’s a bit addictive. So if your children walk around town with little label gun labels on their foreheads, don’t blame me. I warned you.
Okay, this was somewhat better, but still not really working for me. The files were falling all over the place and difficult to locate.
I went in search of something cheap that would work and was thrilled to find this!
It was $6 which I thought was a bit much, but it was cute, I liked the poppies, and I knew it would work out perfectly. Aaahhhh…much better. Everything now has a place and looks cute to boot.
Okay, so let’s review. Home office before….
I rest my case. Next, I am tackling the playroom. Ugh. Wish me luck. It’s a hazardous wreck right now. How about you? Any organization tips to share that have changed your world? Talk to me.
