Tiny projects challenge: Day 1

2 May 2020

I decided to kick off my five tiny-project challenges this week with my scanner stand. It’s a repurposed printer stand (it’s got to be 20 years old) that I use for my ScanSnap S1500M sheetfed scanner and my ScanSnap SV600 contactless scanner. It had become a bit of a dumping ground.

Here’s the before shot:

Fifteen minutes later (woot!) here’s the after shot:

All this took was a little focused attention. In those 15 minutes, I:

  • scanned, then discarded, three documents
  • filed two documents
  • moved books to a bookshelf
  • moved the 23andme DNA test to my desk to consider actually doing
  • put the old photos my husband asked me to scan front and center so I’ll actually scan them
  • put my little dish of push pins where it belongs

That was 15 minutes well spent. I had completely forgotten about those photos and now will be able to scan soon. The scanner stand is the first thing I see when I walk in my office and I also see it when I’m sitting at my desk. So it feels great to have some visual peace!
