Decluttering My Life :: The Office

Yesterday, I took advantage of my day off and cleaned the messiest room in my house, the “office”. When we first moved into the house, before we had the wireless set up, we used this room on the far side of the house as our “office”. Slowly but surely, anytime we didn’t know where to put something, the office seemed to be the answer. After the wireless was up and going, why the hell would we ever go in there other than to put junk [we didn’t know what else to do with] in there, or to retrieve some piece of junk [that we had thrown in there]. Anyway, this is what it eventually looked like:

I couldn’t even go near it without getting a panic attack.

So I knew I wanted to, needed to, clean this room. Using it for storage isn’t a problem, but it needed to be organized. So I bought a bunch of cute colorful bins, set up my fan and my iHome and went to town on that bitch.

And it looks adorable! ♥

I’m so proud!

(Ignore the garbage bags. The stack to the left are the clothes I got rid of when I cleaned out my closet. And the stack to the right is all the trash from cleaning this room.)

I designated a bin to some of my crafty things: photos and old albums, sewing and clothing reconstruction, extra painting supplies, and one more for something…

All the binders, notebooks and folders I’d been keeping [some of] my writings in have just been piled up next to my bed… now they have a home.

And I am a complete freak about school supplies… i simply love them; always have, always will. And, although I have my favorite’s in my bedside table drawer, all my extra supplies now have a proper place. I’m also keeping my sketch books, charcoals, and various other supplies in smaller bins.

We haven’t used that computer is quite a while.

I basically just hung up whatever pictures and posters I found amongst the rubble. I was so relieved to get it done finally. And quite proud at how little time it took me me to get all that done. (And look, there’s David the Gnome! Or “The Roaming Gnome”… whichever)
