Organizing my office one tiny space at a time

1 May 2020

I am spending a lot of time at my desk these days. Since I’m not going into clients’ homes, I’m probably at my desk at least eight hours a day, if not more. Some days I’m staring into the computer and barely looking around. Other days, the disorder jumps out at me. It’s time to do something about it.

I decided that next week I’m going to whip my office into shape. But I don’t want it to be a Big Project. Instead, I’m going to take it one teeny tiny project at a time. I’m hoping that each project will take no longer than 15 minutes. I’ve decided to keep myself accountable and on task by writing a post each day next week with the results of my tiny project.

I have lots of little projects to choose from. They include:

  • My scanner stand with a stack of books and detritus
  • My office supply closet
  • Some action papers that have been languishing since my business slowed down so abruptly
  • Some built-up scanning
  • My under-desk file cart (that will surely take longer than 15 minutes)
  • The snack area in my office
  • My monitor stand
  • My pens

And the list goes on. If I catch a wave, I may move on to other areas of the house.

If you’d like to join me, feel free to comment with the area you’re planning to tackle (or have tackled)!
