Week #11 - The Computer Desk

So, this week I told Jeff to pick an area he would like to see organized. Of course, he said, "Only one?" Yep that's how this works. I don't get overwhelmed, stressed or feel like a failure if I don't accomplish more than that.

Below, is the before picture of my desk area. Also to the left, on the floor, is a box of accumulated papers. I accumulate a lot of papers! I print recipes, articles, and homeschool information!

Below: In the middle of my project. I did take a few breaks. That paper collection was overwhelming for me.

Below: This pile sat there for 24 hours. I just did not know what to do with it. I did figure it out though. ;)

Below: The final is a thing of beauty. haha.

Below: Storage box I had but it was buried under the pile of papers.

Below: What I have put in the storage box.

Below: This is new. It holds resources, notebooks and our Church directory.

Below: Looks better in this direction.

Below: Another new investment. I LOVE this drawer thingy. It fit perfect.

Below: What's inside the drawer thingy.

And again, in case you forgot. The final product.

This makes me sooooo happy. I think I will let Jeff pick again for this upcoming week. I have a feeling I know what he will choose and it is a much bigger project, but I'm sure I can accomplish it if I break it down into days.

I'm linking up to Org. Junkie's blog of the 52-Weeks of Organization Challenge

Okay, now I need to do mine. It's a disgusting mess/disaster. Since I work out of the house, it shouldn't be as messy as it is but I also get overwhelmed with even thinking about cleaning it. I just need to do it. Thanks for the inspiration.

I wanted to answer you question about linking up to Full Plate Thursday. Just link a recipe that you have prepared with a picture and link it the same way you do for Menu Plan Monday. I would have emailed you back but couldn't find you email on your profile. I am following you back! Hope to see you on Thursday.
