The Key to my Sanity

So, the key to my sanity is being organized. I can't even start my work or end my day without my desk being cleaned up and my to-do lists being written. Yeah, I know, obsessive.

But, I know you probably know someone like this - we all do.

And, that's why when I met Christie on Twitter, I knew we'd be friends. :)

Christie is the owner of Simple Organized Sanity, a business that helps you get organized through tip sheets, resources, phone sessions, and more.

When I won a free phone session, I didn't really think I needed it, but was excited. I decided to ask her to help me utilize my office space better. I was organized, afterall, just not necessarily to the best of my abilities. :)

Christie was great. She talked to me about my needs, looked over the photos of my office, and gave me some tips on how I could utilize my space better (on a budget).

She praised me for what I was doing right and suggested things I could do better. I felt better just by talking to her.

Then, it came time to put her tips into action. I spend the whole day Friday on a cleaning bender and tried to put into place as many of Christie's tips as I could. My office isn't only cleaner, it's more efficiant for the many things I've got going on.

Here are some before and after photos, just to peak your interest. Make sure and visit Christie on Twitter at @simpleorganized.
