~~~~~~~~~~~~Decluttering and organizing my desk and bookshelf was a long job yesterday. I worked on finding new places for a great number of items that have been piling higher and higher. In mid December I moved my office materials from the kitchen to this desk and shelf without making space first. The piles got higher still.
I chose 'organization' as my word and focus for 2012 and I started with small wall shelves, tops of furniture, larger wall cupboards and now...
I cleaned out the inside of the desk as well and put supplies in the little drawers. There will be some additions on the little shelves. The computer slides back and just fits when the top is up and there is a 1/4" gap where the desk area folds up so the power cord does not get pinched.
The before and after views. I can see some more work needs to be done another time, but this is much easier on the eyes and the tools I need for work are within reach so I am satisfied. Cost - zero, used materials on hand. Time - about 3 hours in total.
