One of my big projects during spring break was to get my home “office” in order. I have a confession: I have major clutter issues. It’s pretty bad; I let myself get busy, overwhelmed, and I stop caring about how things look.
Well, I decided it was time to do something about it – and hopefully for good. My office needed a major overhaul, some decorations, and some curtains. I also decided that since I hadn’t used the “ancient” desktop computer in ages (it hasn’t even been turned on in months), it would be safe to remove it from the area.
The main things I want to do in my office is create lesson plans and also do my arts and crafts projects. I have two sets of plastic storage drawers. One is filled with my art/scrapbook supplies, and the other one is full of yarn for my crochet projects. I also have a chest with sewing items.
So I started my tidying, then reorganizing and changing around furniture, and finally I did some decorating.
I finally feel like this is a space that I can work in and be productive in. It’s also a place I want to spend time now. I am really happy with the results, and since it’s been over two months since spring beak, I am doing well with keeping it organized.
How do you keep inspired when you are at home? Do you have a special work area? I must say, I love my new spacey work area. What do you think?
