Hi guys!! I am one of those people who appreciate organized chaos. I like my area, especially my crafting and planning, to be clean. This is a staged photo, lol. Because my desk isn't always this clean, my drawers are clean all the time because I always put my stuff away in an organized fashion. :) So I have said before that I purchased my desk because I needed an area to do my HW.
I had a previous desk but after water damage it's not the same, the feng shui was all off. I believe if you have a space you love, you will want to do the work. I enjoy writing at my desk, I eat at my desk, do my school work, my arts and crafts. You name it and my desk is involved. I need to be able to feel comfortable in what ever it is I am doing.
This post isn't about detailed specs of my desk but I really love that my desk is spacious. However, as long as I am going to continue to grow my scrapbook supplies, I will need more space. I have no space to really grow without stuffing things in my drawers, and I am not fan of that. Currently I have the Micke by IKEA but I plan to purchase a bigger desk from IKEA once I move into my new apartment. :D
Let's break down the desk though. On top is where I have my laptop, and either my planner if I am planning or my binder for school. I also have some stones and crystals for good energy and a candle. On the left in the pink basket I have my Target note pads, which I have to go get more because they just added some more :D. Farther left are my pens and makeup brushes. This will eventually change because this caddy is not too big for me, and I can't always get to my makeup brushes. Next to that is my white board, which is where I put my HW. And below that is my paper station, which I will plan on expanding soon. But these folders also come from Target's dollar spot. and I love them :D
Then we have my drawer systems that I purchased in the kitchen section of the Container's Store. Left drawer has all of my essentials, my washi tape, hole punch, some smaller note books, label maker, ribbons, and my doggie's nail clipper.
Right drawer I have a smaller version of the drawer separator where I store my sticky notes, my calculators, page flags, paper clips, binder clips, and index cards.
By being organized I feel as though I can get more work done because my mind doesn't see clutter. I can't really describe it but when I see organization it's not as hard to do my work. I will post more pictures and details soon.
Thanks for reading!!
