Organizing a Home Office Easily and Efficiently #10DaysofOrganizing

When it comes down to organizing and cleaning up, my favorite room to clean is my home office! Organizing a home office is actually fun for me when I’m not being lazy.

I’m one of those people that can’t work (or cook) without making sure that everything is its place first, because I know I’m most motivated in a clean, organized environment and any work right after is about to be EPIC!

Don’t believe me? I wrote my apartment decorating eBook AND my created my decorating workshop on my “clean and clear” days. If my office is a mess, I’m basically useless and will sit at my office desk for hours scrolling through Instagram (you’re following me, right?), while complaining about being cold. Then, I’ll go home and complain about how I’m never getting any work done. Yep, I’m THAT person.

(Oh, if you remember that my office was in my dining room, I’ve actually taken my dining room back and moved my office to a spare bedroom in my mom’s house. I definitely needed the extra space for efficiently sewing pillows for my shop.)

So, when my blogging buddies wanted to join together and do an organization series, I already knew what room I was working in, because I knew I needed this motivation to make sure 2017 starts and finishes in an EPIC way.
