Pay no attention to that mess behind the curtain
Well to hijack a quote from the Wizard of Oz...I guess that was the philosophy I had a adopted for a while. When you walk into my dining room this is what you would see...
However, lurking just a few mere inches away was a horrible mess, that I ignored. Until I couldn't anymore (because things began falling out of the closet onto the floor!) Yikes--right?
It wasn't always like this. I don't know when it became a jumbled messy dumping ground. I am surprised our local waste management company didn't charge me annex fees. I mean seriously--who lives like this? I guess for a while--I did. Boooo.
So with some determination, caffeine and lots of trips to the recycle bin I began to make to progress on my dumping ground.
Finally after a few hours of purging documents, filing, sorting and organizing I ended with a nice little office nook. Not comfortable enough for me to work on my laptop, but organized and inspirational.
And when I want to have a "desk type" surface to work at I can remove my laptop from the closet and sit at my dining room table (instead of leaving it there ALL the time!)
It's not perfect but it is a beginning until I decide where exactly I can carve out some office space in in my house. Now I don't have to worry about anyone peeking behind the curtain and seeing a junk closet! (The garage is another story/ post all together!)
I will be organized. This is my year--I just know it! How about you--do you have messy closets? And where is your office.
