Organize: The Office

Office Organization
Cubicle land? Open office with no privacy or personal space? Home office action up the wazoo? Surrounded by filing cabinets? Drawerless? Whatever your situation I’m sure your office space could use a little annual cleaning (beyond wiping off your desktop).

My Design Public desk is drawerless which is a blessing because it forces me to be super strict with what papers and knick knacks I collect. At home though, it is a different story. I have a Steelcase desk (seen above) with drawers large enough for me to curl up in (if needed). It is such a tank it has been deemed “Big Bertha, The Station Wagon of Desks.” The pluses: I can hide stuff in it. The minuses: I hide too much in it (a.k.a. massive piles of chaos). Again, along comes Emily Wilska to the rescue. In our Storage and Organizational Guide Emily helps us tackle the unnecessary office piles. Go, Emily!

    About Ali

    I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit.
