My Home Office Organization Ideas!

Well it is a new year, that means it brings on all sorts of new goals, plans, etc. Of course everyone seems to want to be more organized with each new year. Organization is something that I am really passionate about… Maybe too passionate about at times? Maybe. I love taking an unorganized space and creating something new and refreshing. I am participating in the New Year’s Organizing Revolution Challenge where each week you organize a different space in your home. It gives me an excuse to organize some of the places in my house that have been ignored! First up, the home office!
Home Office Organization Ideas Before
Before: I had tons of pictures, notes, business cards, etc stacked up in the window seal and on the desk. I only get half of the table because Dave uses the other half so I had to get a little creative, not that there is anything wrong with being creative! That is when the good stuff can happen!

I knew that I wanted to have some clipboards to be able to clip anything I needed so that I could have it handy. By putting some scrapbook paper and Mod Podge onto the clipboards, I was able to make them functional and be able to match the rest of the space nicely. I put a cute framed chalkboard in the center so that I could easily take notes on there. I will have a tutorial for that up within the next few days! I love the artwork that says “I’m kind of a big deal on my blog” because really, it is the only place I am kind of a big deal! I framed one of my business cards for a little inspiration and reminder of who I am! I punched holes in all of the business cards I have received and put them on a ring to hang on the wall so I could find them all easily. I also hung up my badge from the Snap conference and I plan on adding to my conference badge collection this year!
Office Organization Tips
I love how it all looks with the pictures clipped up and the goals written on my chalkboard! I get a lot of inspiration from my family, so I believe that having their pictures on my clipboards is a great way to feel inspired and to remind me of what is most important.

I love my new, clean, organized space!
Now if I could just get my hands on the other side of the table…

New Pretty Chore List

I am sure that most of you have seen my organization board. It basically rocks my world. But not all things are perfect. That is why I needed to do a little tweaking… The chore list.

My first chore list came from Brown Paper Packages. I love it. BUT she is a little more clean than I am apparently. I just couldn’t keep up with some of her chores. Plus, the color of her chart clashed just enough with the green color that I chose, that it really drove me crazy. Enter my new list…

I am offering this list that is customized for you over on my Etsy shop. If you would like this list customized to what you need, please go there to purchase. You can find that HERE.

SO much better! The color matches perfectly and the chores are ones that actually need done at my house. Who else is loving the new look? I can’t wait to do it this way! If you want to use this, just save the picture and print it off. Please only use this for personal use! This is still very much inspired by Brown Paper Packages and I can’t take any credit for the design, just the chores that I do!

I was sick and tired of having lists everywhere. A to do list, grocery list, menu list, and schedule. It was time to put all of my junk in one place! After much research and deep thought, I finally came up with my perfect organization board. It is a command center for my family so we can all keep our lives straight!
