Greetings! Jordan hasn’t written much lately because she and Mr. Spring took a much needed ski vacation and are now finishing up a major home project. She will have pictures to share next week. You’ll be impressed. I know I am.
Before I go on, remember that we are having a contest here at The 2 Seasons to celebrate our January birthdays and our blog’s first anniversary. You can win a $50 gift card to The Container Store. You have one, two, or three ways of winning. Go here for details.
When we decided to give a gift card to The Container Store, I took a good look at my own office and it wasn’t pretty.
My office is in the pantry, opposite the bake station. Here is a quick shot of it looking its best. You can take a complete tour of it here.
This is what it looked like yesterday. It wasn’t a pretty sight. I was dealing with left over Christmas boxes and paper work, coupons, lists, and just stuff.
I didn’t have much in the cabinets, but what was there was a mess.
The electronic mumbo-jumbo was just crammed onto a shelf. The cabinet drawers didn’t look much better. I’ll spare you photos of them.
At least I had already put all of my cables and booklets in baggies and labeled them.
See, I told you that organizing pays off. This was hiding in the corner of one of the drawers. Cha-ching!!!
After just a little over an hour, one cabinet looked like this. I went paper-free on all of my banking last January, and so my files have very little in them. That in itself is a huge way to eliminate stuff.
All of the electronic
crap items are now in a bin. It still isn’t so neat, but at least everything is contained.
I put my Nano and point and shoot camera on a shelf so I can grab them before heading out.
And here is my desk top now.
Ahhhh, much better.
