As promised here are the before & after photos of the office area! Here we go!
BEFORE: I’d emptied out a walk-in closet and put many things in the office as a temporary holding area. That didn’t last long as the sheer volume of the piles was overwhelming. I took “before” photos hoping that the “after” photos could be taken quite soon.
AFTER: It took a couple weeks but the office is back to being an office.
To get the extra items out of the office, I took four boxes full to Goodwill, recycled a pile of older IKEA storage boxes, tossed a stack of orphaned lids that once belonged to plastic storage bins, gave away a stack of books to the library, a stack of books to a friend and emailed friends to offer them five hanging clothing/shoe organizers from IKEA.
Papers have been removed from three big bins and recycled, shredded or set aside to file; most of those pages are inspiration pages, financial pages to file, and memorabilia.
Next on the office to-do list is to hide the computer/cable wires which is another post in itself.
