I'm popping in today with a quick post on how I sorted our home office drawers and cupboards. One of my goals for Jan-Feb was to get the office organised so that I can start working from there rather than at the kitchen table. I am itching to get started on repainting the walls, adding some open shelving, a filing cabinet and more storage. But before I get to pick up the paint-brush, I needed to get the office supplies decluttered and organised, which actually turned out to be a pretty quick job. Here's a look at how I did it...
Here are the piles building....
Categories emerging... Urgh, I am so not a fan of cords. My husband is a secret hoarder of them and has this amazing ability to look at any cord and tell me exactly what it can do. They all look the same to me!
This was actually a pretty simple job of de-cluttering and re-organising. Here are the before and afters:
Sewing supplies were moved to the sewing unit so now I have a blank cupboard to work with - the best!
My business supplies were mixed in with craft and sewing materials, so I moved these to the sewing unit, and rearranged the supplies over two drawers.
After a de-clutter and purge, the cords were placed inside a labelled zippered pouch, and CDs, hard drive, charger and USBs were reorganised over 2 drawers.
The other supplies were placed in our new storage cupboard (check out the video here, I am loving this extra storage space). Now I am so ready to start painting, nothing like a declutter to get the creative juices flowing!
Do you have a home office? How do you keep your supplies organised?
