Organizing our "dumping zone"

About 4 months ago, for pure convience, we moved our desk out of the office and into our living area. This has made it much easier to keep an eye on little ones while getting some things done on the computer. However, the desk is the first big flat surface as you come in the front door. It quickly became the dumping ground for everything...mail, coupons, bills, and I am notorius for my sticky notes. So as you can imagine, we are constantly battling this beast!

I came across OrgJunkie and got some inspiration to clean up this area!

Here are some before pictures

Part way through - OrgJunkie says to pull everything out before organizing, I was amazed at how much junk this helped me find and be able to toss! Great idea!

And some after pictures - the yellow bag is of borrowed books so that will be gone soon :)

Now lets see how long we can keep it this way!!

now I have something to do tonight!! lol. I was cleaning the girls bedroom today and thought I should take pics.. but the carpet has something on that needs SUPER cleaning, and I had already been in there sooooo long. my dump area needs a good "whooping". I so hope you take copying as a compliment.

Hi there, Thanks for stopping by my little blog. Great organizing skills there ;-) Looks Fabulous!
One of the things my blog is for is to be used as a tool for searching all the hundreds of US Coupon blogs out there so you don't have to. I read close to 100 blogs every week and it's big fun to find out which ones will be sharing the biggest savings for the week. And it's great to share that. I usually don't locate the deal (sometimes I do) but mainly just highlight the folks who find the best ones. So, I'm sure you could have read that in my "About me" section but I just love to chat...LOL
Have a great weekend!
oh yes, and I will be RSSing you ;-)
