Well I am still on top of keeping my incoming mail nice and organized :)
Next step is to organize the stationary drawer.
Do you really want to see it all messy and scary?
I know its messy, but because the top of the cabinet is so clean, it doesn't look as bad, right?
Okay it still does ;)
I go in this drawer every single day, many times a day.
Does that help???
Didn't think so.
It was mostly full of papers that didn't belong, and way, way to many pens.
Some tips on cleaning out some drawers.
1. Empty-Take everything out of the drawer
2. Clean- clean out the drawer.
3. Sort- Put all like items together.
4. Purge- Get rid of papers you don't need, pens that are dead, and anything else that doesn't belong.
5- Organize- Put away the remaining items.
I have a metal cutlery tray that I organize my office supplies in. I also have some empty, heavy duty plastic chocolate containers that I separate my pens and pencils in.You don't need pricey storage containers.
In a different drawer in the kitchen, I have pens in a cereal box that I cut down. Use what you have.
Is it odd that I want to retake this photo because the stapler should be turned around because the letters are upside down, lol.
Here is the bottom cupboard of this cabinet. It is always is this organized.
This is where I keep a lot of my papers for the Company Business. So it has to be organized.
I have everything labeled.
Here is a closer look at how I keep organized and my labels.
Pens, Pencils and Fasteners- this is for extras
Quotes- I need to change this one, as it now houses my price lists
Note Pads and Envelopes- This holds the Business's invoice and statement pads and their envelopes. The bottom shelf has more files in portable file folders for both personal and business.
These are things I may need at my fingertips. More detailed files are kept in my big filing cabinets.
These are in my mail slot containers. I need to keep these close as well. I do go through them every few month and file the older ones in the filing cabinets.
Again things I need at my finger tips.
School- papers from the school, that may need a signature, or report cards.
Personal- papers, that need to be filed and I just needed a place to put it
Business- Month end invoicing.
I hope this helped you to figure out how you may want to organize your stationary items.
Mine may look a bit more detailed and fussy, but because I also do bookkeeping in my home for a business, I have more items to organize.
Onto My Day:
Look what I found :)
An Iris peeking out of the snow. Funny thing, it was behind a snow shovel ;)
Yes Spring is coming......even though we had sleet all day today.
Bright side of my day, I was able to chat for a bit to a YouTube friend that is one of the sweetest ladies :)
I hope you all had a creative Wednesday :)
