Organised

Pictures like the one above make me feel envious and inspired.

I have always had a love for pretty, functional, office supplies and the older I get the more I want to organise everything (I guess you could say my OCD is getting worse *winks*) .

Ive never been a disorganised hoarder (note: having alot of books doesn't count as hoarding). In fact, I find it very healthy to get rid of things you don't use/wear or things that take up too much space. Clutter makes me feel very uncool.

I've always wanted a pretty and organised home office - So, for my next organising project, i have decided that this December I am finally going to try make our study/extra room into a organised and super functional home office.

Are you a organiser OR a disorganised hoarder?

  3. Hi! I've been quietly following for a while now but this is my first comment :)
    Me organise? NOT AT ALL. Chronically disorganised in fact. I have a box of 'stuff' that hasn't been unpack since we moved LAST YEAR. I don't even know what the 'stuff'.
    I too covet that nice, neat, organised office...sigh, maybe one day when I am big...

  4. My books are organised into alphabetical order but that's the only thing that's organised. Everything else is a mess.

  5. I'm so jealous!! That looks AWESOME!!

    I have a total addiction to stationary and artsy things. I cannot get enough of it. And to have such an awesome place to store it and see everything... OMG!!! Heehee!! I think I should take up your idea as well...=D

  7. You could call me lazy with OCD tendencies! ;) ... or just say I'm stuck somewhere in the middle.

  8. AMEN sister!

    I too am organized. I too love office and craft supplies. I too have waaaay too many books, but do not consider that hoarding. Books are pretty easy to organize, especially if you've ever worked in a library or bookstore.

    I too will be making it all look awesome in December, largely because my husband and I are commissioning a craft cabinet to be made! With a special shelf for my sewing machine!

    The only thing about the picture above is that I kind of like to have organization behind doors. Somehow that is lovely.

  10. I am a disorganised discarder. I am a mess but I hate keep stuff, like to get rid of it or give it away. When I can find anything.

  11. Love it! I am definitely an organiser. I would love a very pretty desk space to do my work. Maybe when I move into my new room, I can make it lovely!

  12. It's strange - certain parts of my life are mor organized than others. If it involves someone else I plan it down to a T.

  14. I dream of a lovely home opffice space. See, I swing between being super organised and a total hoarder (of craft stuff, at least), but TSC is just plain disorganised. I actually can't see the desk in our home office at all at the moment with his varsity stuff lying everywhere. I struggled to find the keyboard the other day. But we have decided that this holiday it will get sorted out, so he's supposedly busy filing today.

  17. I really want to say I'm organized but I don't think I'm that disorganized. I've been TRYING so hard to stay organized everytime I do get organized.

  18. Definitely an organizer!! I'm actually envious of the picture you posted, that's how bad I can be. :-)

    But, at the same time, I was raised by a hoarder....so I have some of those tendencies.

    For example...I have boxes in my basement from when we moved in 3 years ago. Crap that we don't need or use. But...they are nicely stacked on shelves. :-)

  23. Love that pic! I am an organised hoarder! I've gotten better, and live in a small space now, so constantly find myself clearing out and throwing away!
