Today

Tackling my messy desk

Afternoon friends,

It’s been a lazy morning thus far: slept in, watched some Smallville over breakfast and then watched some more without my breakfast. Haha.

Past few days I’ve been concentrating on helping my parent’s spring clean, job searching, and starting blog drafts of ideas I’ve been having (Coming Soon! haha).

Because I’ve been distracted, I’ve let the surfaces in my bedroom become catch-alls and things have gotten pretty cluttered- especially my desk/ work space. Today the goal is to declutter, organize, and take care of things that are there to ‘deal with later.’ No use putting them off anymore!

Here’s a before picture:2017-08-15 12.28.49.jpg

I’ll come back later to post the ‘after’ photo!

Update (about 3 hrs. later):
Hello again!

I really took care of stuff instead of just putting things away to deal with later so the space looked clean. I redid and went through all my files and ended up with a stack of recycling (I had the warranty information from a Dell laptop I don’t even own anymore!) and more room to store the files I actually need.

Not sure why I tested the pencils…

I also tested all the writing utensils on my desk because I knew some didn’t work, which is why the word ‘works’ is now written 20+ times in my sketch book. To scale down the clutter I also put away the duplicates and extra office supplies I had, there’s no reason I needed five or six highlighters and a box of extra staples out on my desk.

Hell, I even plugged my printer in for the first time since moving back! I’ve been using the one in my parents’ office instead and allowing mine to just collect dust.

So here it is, the after the photo:

I mean, it wouldn’t be featured on a fancy website or magazine, but it feels like I can use it again!!

Anyway, I’m going to go shred a bunch of old documents now, enjoy this post!
