Despite Mother Nature toying with our hopes right now, it is indeed spring -
and therefore time to do one of the things I love most.
No seriously, I love it. You can ask any roommate I've had in boarding school, college, NYC. I take great pleasure in removing everything out of my closet/shelves/bookcases and re-folding/re-organizing. It's very therapeutic. If I were a character on "Friends", I'd be Monica. And just like Monica, I probably drove those aforementioned roommates absolutely crazy.
I make a million lists and I insist on having a place for all items in my life; I require many boxes, folders, bags, pouches, other spaces in which to store things. I realize that this is a sign of perhaps over-compartmentalizing my life in some obsessive compulsive way, but let's be honest, we're all a little screwy.
First thing on the list to organize? Your desk. Having an organizational system on your desk is conducive to productivity, but it's also important to really enjoy and find inspiration & happiness in your work area. Here are some favorites to help organize and brighten your desk. They also make great gift ideas!
