And I decided, there is no way that I am going to be able to study for grad school (which I will have started by the time you read this) in this kind of mess. So I spent the day, cleaning, organizing and (most importantly) watching season 3 of Sex and the City on DVD.
So here are the before:
And now on the after:
The desk area
Wire cubes filled with books and teaching materials
In/out tray with my Rolodex (the rolodex is another post)
This desk doesn't have any drawers so we have a 3 drawer rolling cart.
Let's have look in those drawers shall we?
Notice how I have whole section dedicated to postie notes.
I have entered a 12-step program for postie note addiction.
Anyway, I got the boxes on the clearance at (of all places) the grocery store.
They are plastic pencil boxes and I just leave them open and use them as dividers.
In here we have checkbooks, envelopes, address labels, stamps and some computer stuff
Paper (regular and heavy weight), extra binders, and page protectors
The best organizational idea ever!
These are my iPod sync cord and camera sync cord.
I use them all the time and so I like them out but I don't want them taking up desk space.
I sent out an SOS on Facebook and one of my friends sent me this link.
In his words it's "crazy brilliant".
The desk is right next to the bed so it doubles as a side table.
This is pile of reading material.
It's not totally done. I want to switch the places of the wire cubes and the tall boy dresser. I also need do a sort and purge of the other (unpictured, purposely) side of the room. But for now it is good. I have place to study and get this grad school thing done.
