Facebook page, print a recipe, post my listings, and in general, manage our home. I wear many hats and most of them require some computer time. I hate the thought of moving this space into my craft room upstairs, as I think I would be confined to that room most of the day.
My husband hates the fact that this has turned into my "office", but I spend so much time in the kitchen and with the family - this is really where my things NEED to be. The problem was that it was all just too much. One big pile with a mix of paperwork stacked in my "to do" pile. This is my before picture~
Today I decided to break it all down, file it away, and get it organized. I laid sticky notes out on my kitchen table labeled "Real Estate", "Rental", "Guild", "Scentsy", "Heather" & "The Girls". Soon I had several neat piles that seemed so much more manageable to go through!
I made a trip to Staples today and bought some pretty files and a file sorter. I used my label maker and made neat labels of all my little stacks. This is my "Inbox".
Scentsy business, arranged a fundraiser for my Guild, and sorted some business receipts. What a productive day!
Here is the "After" picture!
This may not look like the computer area of the homes I show, which are completely bare and have one laptop neatly on the counter, but it's organized, manageable, and I feel so much better now that it's done!
