Almost There: Office Redo Update!

Office Redo Update!

What's the opposite of progress? Regress? Whatever it may be, my tackling of the office CCD (reference) and basic office redo looks like I've taken five steps backwards rather than any steps forward. However, I have an odd organization process that makes everything look a lot worse than it actually is, so it's fine!

I work from home, for those who aren't aware, and also live in the tiniest apartment. These two facts together can be frustrating beyond belief. The second bedroom acts as my office, my library and the guest bedroom. This is why my workspace has been pushed into the corner and many things (including my books that refuse to fit into the bookcase) have been stacked and crammed into plastic containers. 

This. Is. A. Problem.

If I have to, I can work and be creative without a working workspace. BUT it doesn't make sense not to love or use your workspace!

Here's my corner of doom before I did anything. (The horror, THE HORROR!)

Originally I drew this. A few things have changed but this is basically what I am going to do! 
(I never said I could draw!)

Next I decided it was time to de-clutter, something a pack rat finds almost impossible! So what did I do? I put everything in the middle of the room! 

Since this picture was taken I have put up shelves and reduced my clutter by half. However, I am still trudging through the rest. 

So why did I even put up this post of shameful pictures of my (now) very messy office? 

I want you to take the time to go through your clutter and get rid of the things you don't need! Fellow pack rats, keeping random things through the years isn't worth the hassle later when you need to redo a room or move! 

Trust me!


  1. This is hlarious! But I definitely know what you mean! Put it in the middle and its in your way. You tend to then put things away. But keep it in the corner and for some reason you think that means it's put away

  2. It's totally understandable. However, it's a good thing that you're motivated to do something about your space, and well, you should really do something about it. :) Nevertheless, your avid readers will surely look forward to an update with regards to your office redo.
