Thanks for all the great suggestions so far! I'm getting good ideas and I've already done a bit of re-arranging and tidying up!
There is still time to send me your tips! After reading and responding to many of your emails and comments I have discovered a few things:
- My room is already pretty much organized, but it is not "pretty". Any tips on hiding the stuff I need, but making it accessible?
- I don't really have much to purge. I purge constantly. So I need tips for making things neat and organized. But the stuff that is there is pretty much necessary for the businesses and school. Here are the thing I have that must stay: computers (2), printers (2) (although could I get rid of a printer if I had a wireless router? ), scanner (although could I get rid of the printers and get one all-in-one printer w/ a scanner? The more I type the more ideas I get!), all stamps on the shelves -- which are for my online rubber stamp business (and while they look empty, that will change drastically in a couple of weeks when they will be overflowing with the 2006 stamps!), a place for patterns -- which are for my knitting pattern business -- in various stages of completion (back from the printer, folded, photo attached), Maddie's school stuff.
- My furniture is so mis-matched! Do I have to buy all new? Is there a way to integrate some of what I have? I've looked at IKEA, Pottery Barn, filing cabinets (topped by doors? counter tops?).
So maybe by organization I meant hiding or camouflaging :) Or just making things match!
Please keep sending me those ideas! I especially like links to sites / items / photos!
