Baby steps... that's my goal or maybe slowly but surely. I am an organizing freak! O.C. (Obsessive Compulsive) when it comes to my things, files... well I guess everything. As much as possible I want my stuff orderly both at home and office. I always believe that you can work properly in an organized environment. Last week, I started revamping my office work space. Though I cannot do the re-arranging and working all at the same time. But I know little by little I will get there.
First assignment: Side table
De-clutter: This is easier said than done (hihi). Need to throw a couple of used or old stuff. There are times we need to let go of our old things, because it really eats up space (except for those with a little sentimental value which we need to weigh: which is important and not-so important). From there you can start.
Reuse / Refurbish: Instead of buying new containers or folder organizers, I just wrapped the old ones, and Whoala! It looks new again. Used old desk calendar holder/case as mat by wrapping them with black cartolina and plastic cover. For the used bond papers, we use the blank side in photo copying and the others I cut them to make small memo pads.
Black and white with a touch of hot pink of course is my color peg (excuse the green expanding folders, I have no choice but to use them, they are office issued supplies), just like my work table at home. The white plastic baskets / CD containers: I got them from Daiso store just below our office at P88.00 each where I placed my CD library where I back up my files and reports and the other container for my current and previous years journal. Having a yearly journal is another story, yes I keep them for future reference. I also have another container with handle for unused plastic utensils and straw, instead of throwing them away if we have our meals delivered, so if we have a small office party we need not buy plastic utensils anymore. The canister, used to be a mug case: now I am using it to store my instant coffee, iced tea and condiments sachet.
Well, these are all for now... I'll be sharing my second project soon...
