Welcome to 2016! I am very excited about this year. Not only do I have some fun things planned, but we are also going to be welcoming a new little one in June!
I think I might have the nesting bug a little early. The last half of December into well…now…I have been checking items off my master project list left and right. I have also been finally getting rid of items I have not used, have been trying sell, think I am going to sell and stuff I bought just because it was on sale.
Let me tell you…it feels GREAT!
My office had turned into a huge dumping spot for anything and everything. I didn’t even want to go in there to work. I usually just took my laptop and curled into bed to get things done. Which doesn’t work because then I just end up browsing or yelling at my laptop because it’s too slow. Then fall asleep.
I love working on my desktop. I am a visual person. I need items on paper, spread out in front of me that I can scribble on, write lists and file away.
The office had to be cleaned.
It started the week before Christmas. I made a list of all the items I wanted done before guests started arriving and I did them. One nap at a time.
Some of the items I finally got rid of/donated (and you should too)
- Clothes that I have been trying to sell..some for a year!
- Small items I didn’t want to throw away but always thought I could sell at a yard sale… in 3 years the yard sale has yet to happen.
- Boxes. I am an avid ebay seller, and even offer it to clients as a service to sell their items. I had way too many boxes that were taking up space and some too big or too small that I would never use. Into the recycling they went.
My office is really coming along and I can’t wait to have a finished product to show you. I don’t have a before picture. I should have, the impact would be amazing but I was too eager to jump in to think about it!
I will continue to post about other projects and great tips on my journey to a clean and functional office but for now, one of the projects I checked off my list was putting something in our hall bath over the toilet.
For 3 years I have been waiting for the perfect, unique piece that I never found. I needed something.
So I grabbed some scrap wood, brackets from Hobby Lobby and put up some shelves.
I have to admit I really like them. I am constantly changing out the items I have on them until I find what I love.
I created this little printable and if you like it, click on the image, download and print one for yourself!
