Really? Will it EVER happen?

Organizing my office, that is. It's been a giant monkey on my back for YEARS (unlike the monkey in my liquor cabinet, which I removed shortly after I found it...).

I suppose my biggest hurdle to deal with first is deciding what sort of an 'office' I want it to be. Do I want everything out and actively used, or do I want to throw a lot of it in cardboard moving boxes on shelving units around the room. It looks tidier that way, but considerably smaller with the shelves everywhere.

I also have one of those wardrobe sort of things, with shelves in it and doors that close. It was originally to organize stuff from a previous business, and now I have my scrapbook stuff neatly laid out in piles in there. Would I be better off finding one of the nifty organizational stuff for scrapbook supplies and then using the shelves for business supplies?

Whoa. It sounds like my biggest problem is over-thinking solutions instead of just picking up all my junk. Just sayin...

I hear ya! Our office looks terrible. We have to close the door when guests are here b/c it's so bad! I do think shelving for us would really help!

I get too busy and just start throwing stuff. I have plenty of room and organizational stuff, but I don't always take the time to utilize it. Good luck in your decision making process.

When you figure it out come take care of my mess of a office too.

I keep changing my mind in regards to whether I want stuff out and usable or tucked away. Each time I do, I begin to rearrange and reorganize.... until the next time! =)

I've given up on organizing while the children are little. As soon as I get started, I'm sure to be needed elsewhere.

Yeah, it does sound a little like analysis paralysis. I get it ALL the time!

I find the "monkey in the liquor cabinet" comment funny - but I don't know why because I don't understand what it means, really... :-)
