I've been trying to get organized for... oh, I'm not sure how long... my whole life. Does that sound completely pathetic?
My desk is one of the places that needed the most improvement, but this little file basket seems to have helped...
It's just a wire file basket from Tar-jay filled with some pretty file folders labeled to help me organize some of my problematic pile-ables. There was enough room left over for my address book, a couple sizes of envelopes and a package of blank note cards. Plus I've been using one of the flowers as a nifty list holder.
So, I'm probably still not completely organized in my office, but when the desktop is clean, I can at least look organized. And that's good enough for me!
