Blog All About It: Organize


MY DESK:

Behold my dining room table morphs into my desk ;-)

A third of the table is for eats.

The second third is for the laptop.

And the rest is for the "organized" piles.

My piles are somewhat neat and under control at the moment.

BOOK PILE:
1. new acquisitions to shelve
2. review books recently received
3. current tbr
4. books and dvds from the library

PAPER PILE:
1. magazine subscriptions - New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, The Atlantic Monthly, Cooking Light
2. flyer for my upcoming chorus performance, Alexander Nevsky at Herbst Theater
3. film poster for Ready Player One
4. related material for the upcoming June vote

CRAFT PILE:
1. basket filled with embroidery paraphernalia
2. book binding pocket kit (on top of basket)
3. canvas zipper bag of stickers, washi tape, colored pens and markers


MY PLANNER:


I love using my Happy Planner for the daily, monthly and yearly planning of to-do's and to-go's.


FYI:

I read this book awhile ago and picked up great tips from it that I have incorporated and continue to do. The online YouTube video how-to's that go with her concept are helpful too.

  1. Organized stacks are great. I love to spread out and work on my dining room table where it sets in the side window. Half of ours is taken up by a puzzle I'm working off and on at the moment. ;)

  2. I've been pretty good keeping my books together. We just moved here...so give it time and there will be books everywhere.
