This year to make myself more organized, I changed my home office into just a home office. No more home office/guest room with an itty bitty corner desk. I went and splurged on the Ballard Designs Original Home Office. It has so many drawers and shelves and I have a huge work area. Have I done anything with those draws and shelves?...not so much.
Here is a photo and I purposely hid the area to the left of the computer which is just a pile of papers and books.
My goal is to put things in those drawers and those lovely gray wood crates I purchased at Marshall's. Can I just digress for a second? I LOVE Marshall's, Home Goods, and TJ Maxx. Those places are like going on a treasure hunt and coming back with this awesome find. Even the little gray Cynthia Rowley wood box frame is from there. Unfortunately, the picture in the frame is the one that came with it. Don't you love how I have Fifty Shades of Grey mixed in with Nonfiction Mentor Texts? - classy :). The pretty Mixed Bag Designs bag is holding more books that I have to put on the shelf. I am also on the hunt for a spin-organizer that matches the white wood. To the right is a a cute print that needs to go in a frame along with some scrapbook paper that needs to be put away. I have two humongous printers. The one hiding under the desk is an economy Epson color printer. The one above the desk is a Brother b&w printer/scanner/copier.
Here are some bad iphone photos of my old desk. The desk now resides with my friend Diana. The deal was she could have the desk if she got it out of my house. Her husband and brother came and amazingly got that thing down the stairs and out the door in one piece.
On to how I am organized! Just click on the photos to check out the packets the labels come from. Yes, I am a label queen! You have to emerse those students in environmental print! Plus, it makes my classroom perfect for Read/Write the Room.
