I’m Messy: Fixing A Beautiful Mess

I live a whirlwind of a life. With this constant chaos comes quite the mess to follow. I’m talking papers and books stacked to the ceiling, clothes thrown and shoved in unconventional places and the constant “Where’s Waldo” like escapade when looking for anything.  I couldn’t live like this so I did some searching and found some nifty little fixes that were able to help a Tasmanian devil like myself. When it comes to getting work done, I can use all the help I can get.

Here are my top 4 tips for getting that desk (and brain) of yours organized!

1. Get Pretty.

Invest in pretty stationary! You’ll find yourself being far more careful and considerate with it and it keeps you organized. Who doesn’t want to whip out a gorgeous little book whenever they want to jot down an appointment?

 2. Think Sticky.

Sticky notes have changed my life. Like a quick little reminder, you can stick these guys anywhere and be instantly reminded to do just about anything! For me it’s remembering to take my vitamins.

3. Get Hanging.

Put all those important papers and notes somewhere you can see them! And feel free to style them accordingly.

4. Top It All Off.

There are way too many pens, pencils, rulers, and other random doo-dads and gadgets we keep on our desks these days. Why not display and organize them in style?
