I still need to file things correctly once I get my system up and running, but everything is organized and filed on the desk for when that day comes, and I’ve taken care of some nagging tasks I found in the pile as well. :) 4 months ago

and the desk seems like a great place to start with my big push to get organized during the second trimester. :)
I need to get a proper working filing system in the house (yes, I’ve been saying this for over a year) but I can start by sorting what is there into files and folders – it’s a manageable chunk and can lead into greater organization as we go forward. 4 months ago
Sitting down at my desk to work no longer makes me want to despair of ever finding the space I need so I am done with this goal for now. Everything is in its place and there is a place for everything. No extraneous papers or piles of stuff to move out of the way.
I would like to have a better way to keep the things I am working on organized but apart from that, I feel happy and definitely more organized and productive. 11 months ago
Almost there! All the paper piles are gone. I have a tiny pile of “stuff” (literally 2” by 3” x 2” high) that I need to stow away but it is not in the way.
I do have all my CISSP books and notes on my desk now but I need those at least for the next 7 days. Once I pass the exam, I am going to give all those away!!!
So.. 99% done! 12 months ago
Still not done! I can’t seem to get the last few pieces of paper off my desk. I will get this completed by this weekend. 13 months ago
Not complete yet but a whole lot better state than it was in last week. The big pile of papers is gone. A few assorted things that need to find a home still linger on the desk. Good progress so far! 14 months ago
This morning, I realized that two months had gone by without making any progress on this. So I have started tackling the paper pile and will also be finding a place for the other items that have made their home here.
I am hoping I can get this completed today. 14 months ago
Tackled the right hand side of my desk today and it is clear except for the reference books for my online project. Since that is the designated spot for them, I am done with one side of the desk for now.
Next on the agenda – tackle the left side. Two parts – pile of papers to be sorted (file/shred/recycle) and things that needs to stay/go. 16 months ago
Bought a small stand which will allow me to dock my work laptop when I am at home. This also increases the usable area and means that I don’t need to move the other items like the USB hub, etc. when I want to work from home.
Next, I am going to tackle the two piles of paper on the desk. 17 months ago
At work I manage to be quite organized… I need very little at work to be efficient. A laptop, a keyboard, couple monitors… and a box of tissues. A pen and paper is only necessary to assist people that walk up to my desk and ask a question as I record all notes on my computer now… Slowly I organize all my electrical documentation too.
Just need pencils and pens at work since I rarely write anything.. At home.. My office is like after the earthquake.. only 10 times worse.. Ok, maybe 100 times worse.. That wasn’t a strong earthquake. The office is worse than the desk though. 2 years ago
