Welcome to my messy home office/guest room. Today is the day I will move all my 2010 files to storage and start fresh with 2011. Yeah!! no more paper cuts trying to cram one more receipt into its given file. By December everything is so full that I actually look forward to getting it organized and fresh again.
Everything on my desk is current projects, so they will need to stay.
Before: Files crammed full.
After: Files cleaned out and new folders ready to start 2011.
Here they are all packed up ready to put into storage. Will have to hang on to them for seven years. (The only thing I keep around for seven years is the Husband, The Kid, and Receipts for the IRS.)
After: Clean and organized desk.
After: Guest Room portion clean again. I hate washing all the bedding in this room, the only one ever on the bed is the dog.
After: Another view of the Guest Room/Office.
I have an actual office, but it has been over run with shoes and accessories. So it is now the shoe and jewelry room. Good thing I don’t have many guests. I spend a lot of time in the office.
