This week my word of the week is ‘organised’ because this week has seen me go through my desk drawers. I have thrown out rather a lot of stuff, including techy bits that I’d been saving for no real reason! I’ve also moved all my DVDs off the shelf above my desk and into a specific bookcase, so now I have room for desky stuff above my desk.
It’s interesting how my organisation started. Initially I just planned to move the DVDs. Then I realised I could put my notebooks on the, now empty, shelf, so I tidied up my writing drawer which had housed them before. After that I thought I might as well do the other two drawers! One was full of technology; wires galore, old iPod, never used earphones, CDs and instruction manuals! It took a while, and I will admit I tried to revive my washed iPod. I failed.
Then I moved on to my stationery drawer. Wow! The before photo below is after I’d taken the bigger stuff out! I was surprised at how many of the pens still worked to be honest, I thought loads would need to be binned, but nope!
We popped to Carrefour yesterday and I got a pen pot and a desk tidy which are now sitting in the drawer making it even more tidy than the photo above suggests!
I still need to find a sensible place to put the DVD storage, currently it’s by the radiator, not ideal once the central heating goes on!
The animal charity where I go agility training will be getting a bunch of never used address books, a calculator (who uses those anymore?!) and a variety of other goodies that they can sell to raise some cash. So not only have I got a more organised living situation, a charity close to my heart will benefit too.
How organised have you been this week?
