Getting Organized: Cleaning Out My Desk

There is nothing better than getting organized, purging the clutter and bringing in new things that make sense for your life and closet. I am going to be sharing what I do to stay on top of my mess; some are once a year, others are every season or quarter and many are once a month or even once a day (!) depending on the task at hand.  For me, Week One is all about my desk and computer  Being organized and starting out the New Year with a new calendar, updated files and a cleaned out Inbox is the best feeling.  It is a fresh start and I work better when I have everything stored in its proper place.  I don’t know about you, but December is a crazy month for me, so when I leave the office and our home for our vacation after Christmas, I have let all my good habits fall to the wayside and every where I look there is piles of junk;  my drawers, my desktop, and my files (in and out off my computer). Ugh!  And lets not get to my bathroom, closet, bureau, pretty much everywhere… it is overwhelming and makes me crazy! Once I have Christmas put away (yes, I edit before I put it away!) , I start to breathe a little easier and then I take one task a week to get myself reined in.

This weekend will be my time to clean out my desk, computer and phone.  I put together my 6 Tips to a Clean and Organized Desk and you can get it by subscribing HERE or below in the POP UP BOX on the RIGHT.  That way you can print it out and go at your own pace.  It is a lot to do and, depending on your space, it can be best to take it in small time increments that work for your schedule.

My current desk is in the kitchen and I really need to remove myself from the action to be more productive.  I am going to set up a new space and try to make it my own.  I would like to get a few supplies to be my reward for tackling a big clean out..,I am looking at these hand bookends, these letter opener and magnifying glass, I have been wanting this acrylic tape dispenser and stapler, and think this Buckle Magazine Caddy is so chic and there are so many more goodies pictured below!  Happy Organizing!
