desk organization

i don’t know about you, but having an organized work area is essential to me getting anything done. i’ve also found that i like for things to be functional and look good. so, it was kind of a no-brainer when i found this plastic make-up organizer. i knew it would be perfect for holding some of my random desk stuff that i don’t want just laying around.

p.s. how freaking cute are those tiny chalkboards? thank you, dollar section at Michael’s, for making the tiniest chalkboards ever.

p.p.s. still not sure how i’m going to use them…but who cares?! they’re so cute!

  3. Love cute organization. My problem is KEEPING it organized. I've challenged myself to keep my car organized for longer than a week. I'm on day 5.

    I got some of those same chalkboard clothespins from Michaels too…I bought way more than I needed because I couldn't decide which color I liked best so I got those aqua-ish ones and the red ones! I turned mine into little clips for my cork board. I just super glued a couple of pushpins to the backs of a few of them and they are too cute! I can't bring myself to write on them yet though…eventually!
