I love the idea of embracing a new year. It’s a clean slate; with lots of opportunities ahead and a time to reflect on things that need improving. I decided to finally tackle the general lack of order in my life. I don’t think there’s a word that describes the level of disorganization that I exhibit, so I hired professionals. Enter: heather|brookes interior organization. They helped me with my two biggest problem areas (closet post is coming soon!) and implemented systems that are aesthetically pleasing and simple to maintain.
My desktop file was updated with all white folders for a clean, streamlined look. It contains all the general categories that are now in my (new!) file cabinet, so when I don’t have time to truly organize, I just throw things into their corresponding category.
My master file cabinet contains all of the main categories (in fun, color-coordinated shades), which are then broken down into specific sections.
My desk drawer used to hold important things like gum wrappers and old receipts. Now I have lucite dividers that actually ensure that each item has its own place!
I now keep things like stationery and photographs in boxes so they’re easy to access, but not spilling out of my desk drawers.
