New Years Eve is tomorrow and two of my goals/resolutions for the new year is to eat better and stay organized. I am on my iphone all of the time so why not use it to help me with my goals.

Declutter Challenge-Office

As most of you know I am participating in a DeClutter Challene that Mary Organizes set up. You can find out more information here

This week’s challenge is to clean your office space. Here is how the week is broken down.


Week #8 Guidelines

Office Areas

You will see a lot of papers this week. Get that recycling bin ready!

Sunday – Take the day off and mentally prepare for the week ahead. 91 days is a marathon, don’t let yourself get burned out by trying to sprint the first half! A day off to rest and re-focus is vital.

Monday – Desk drawers

Tuesday – Files

Wednesday – Printer station and school supplies

Thursday – Shelves, other furniture, and storage

Friday – Desk top(s) and surfaces

Saturday – The floor and anything else, then wrap everything up. Donate your donate items and Relocate your relocates. If a relocate item goes to a room you’ve already de-cluttered, then put it back where it goes. If the de-clutter item goes to a room that hasn’t been cleaned yet and it doesn’t have a place, just put it in the room.

I really don’t have an office per say. I made a closet in the basement in the last bedroom which I made into my exercise room. The closet is small and I really don’t spend much time in the office/closet except to look for items or to file paperwork.

Here is my before pictures, which is embarassing how bad it was.


It was such a mess I started on the bookshelf and cleaned it off by shelf and put like items together and put items that didn’t belong in that area where they were suppose to be. The desk was full of my son’s paperwork almost a year worth of his art work and other kindergarten paperwork. I also put a shelf up that I had to keep my desk cleared off. The file cabinets were a mess a lot of paperwork I just needed to file and other items belonged in other areas. I found a bench at Target on clearance for $30 and I think it all looks great.

Now it looks 100% better.



What do you think? How do you keep your office area clean?
