Mission Organization: Week 4 - My Cluttered Desktop

This week I tackled my desktop. The before pictures that I am posting today make me cringe to share them with you. My desk was cluttered with piles of paper that seemed to have taken on a life of their own.

This is an embarrassing shot of the desktop where I blog.

The piles of recipes and who knows what else are stacked everywhere.

My plan of attack was just to clear it all off and sort it out. I found a couple of empty electronics boxes, a big stack of papers to be filed, a huge stack of recipes and cooking magazines, 5 different product manuals, assorted catalogs, and a big pile of trash.

There was also a change jar, one of my husband's manuals, and my iPad case.

This was a big job, but the end result was worth the effort.

My entire desktop is now clutter-free with space to spare.

I love sitting down to a desk with no clutter.

The sorting took quite a while, but it was time well spent.


  1. Looks great. Compared to mine at the moment, your before picture looks great, too! It does make us feel better when we accomplish something that we have put off.

  2. This really looks wonderful. I love to visit your blog. I never leave empty handed and always have a tip or recipe to take back to my own kitchen. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
