I know...don't judge!
I went to the dollar store and spent $12 on new baskets and bins. I also went to Walmart to get a new table which was $30. And then I found two shelves at a tag sale for $20. SOOOO for a total of $62 I was able to reorganize my entire office/craft room!!
I first went to Walmart and bought a new table..
I found these awesome shelves at a tag sale! 2 for $20! It was a steal!
I cleaned all those items out of that corner and out from underneath the table.
I cleaned out the draws..
Side right draw has: Paper clips, thumb tacs and binder clips
Draw to the left: Post-it notes and rubber bands
Coupons, File, Outgoing, Incoming
This is my mail station...all mail is sorted here and placed in the proper bin. No more mail on the kitchen counter or the kitchen table! I know where everything is and where everything needs to go!
Return labels, Ideas to do, Work, Valentines Day etc.
My desk caddy was in need of a good cleaning:
I found these bins at the dollar store. I thought they would be great for my receipts! My home receipts are items like if we bought a new washer and dryer I would place that receipt in the "Home" bin and then file it or discard it. If I bought something for my classroom I would place it in the "Work" bin for tax purposes. After the tax season is over I file my receipts with my tax papers so the bin is cleaned out for the next year.
Small pieces in the small bag, medium in one bag, and the larger pieces in another...
I also moved a file cabinet into my office so that it was more convenient !!
It is possible to organize on a small budget!! Each zone has a purpose and is clutter free!
It is as simple as 1-2-3!
