Here is how I got organized on the Office:
2. Create a budget. I had Christmas money to spend so I figured $50 would be exactly what I needed. I went over by $10.00. Not too bad, I knew this space would be the most costly.
3. Remove EVERYTHING from the space.
4. Sort through everything. Does it apply to the space's job? Have you used it in 6 months-1 Year (get rid of it? Does it need to be relocated? I had 3 bins on hand: Relocation bin, Trash Bin and To use bin. The relocation bin can be for donation or just needs a new place or needs to be put back where it belongs.
5. Put in the bare bones.
6. Return Items from the top down.
Now ENJOY your organized space!
With the $60 bucks I bought a collapsible storage ottoman from Ross ($20), the wall organizer from Target ($25), the red clock ($7), the black shelf ($10), and the cup ($1). I also reorganized the drawers and bills. I tried to be as frugal as possible and use what we had. The wood 2X4 actually says "give thanks" on the back but it doesn't really match our decor so I flipped it over and put nails in for a coat rack. :)
Stay tuned next week for the Kitchen Makeover!
