My desk is probably the busiest place in the house maybe sometimes in the world. Everything happens in this small space, from phones being charged, laptop/tablet being used to mails that need attention. Although there are other places I can put my own workstation ( I call it that way because I do so much on it) other than our kitchen/dining area, this is the place that I spend most of my time to get things done and be able to multitask.
For the most part, my desk had been functional until the growing needs of our family left me overwhelmed and there are times that I found myself staring in space as I try to figure out how to finish my long to-do list. I love to write everything down as I have mentioned before, that is one of the reasons I have a physical planner and a mobile one, I also have multiple notebooks that keeps piling up as I go through different planning and events (I love my notebooks). In addition to that, we have mails and all kinds of paperwork that needs to be filed, which ends up adding to the pile on my desk or hidden in my storage box. Sometimes I don’t even want to open my storage box just so I can avoid dealing with the mess I created.
With that in mind, I decided it is time for a change. I need a desk that is more accommodating to what I really need to do and keep my mind at peace to the chaos I am experiencing inside my head. It is exhausting both physically and emotionally. My desk is not really big but there is enough space to hold a hanging file holder which solves my problem of procrastinating over a pile of papers and mails, and a clear file box for my planners and notebooks. Here are the new additions to my desk and if ever you like this style, everything is from Target. I have to keep everything within a budget of course.
