Task #1: Decluttering my desk.

So the following photos you are about to see below may be a little embarassing. What a state I’ve been living in for a long time. It was time to clean up. I love having a clean slate to work with. It doesn’t always happen to stay clean for extended periods of time.

Case in point. Perfectly equipped with tampons and all.

Ideally I’d like to have an Ikea Malm dressing table for the desk, preferably in that “black-brown” color they have. Super modern and not 90’s looking like this pine colored one I grabbed from Canadian Tire back in2006 when I moved to Ontario. Hey, it was on a great discount. I think I paid $50 for the desk  which also came with a book shelf. lol.

For the longest time I avoided cleaning my desk off. I simply cannot just sit down and relax, and blog in comfort when my desk is overflowing with stuff that just simply needs to be put back in its place. How does it accumulate so quickly? It’s not like it’s a dropping grounds for my keys, and purse when I come in after the end of a day since the door is on the other side of the apartment. It just… happens. Most of it has a home too, there’s credit card gift cards, new clothes, calvin klein coupons, and even tampons.

So I got to work, putting one piece away at a time and not even 15 minutes later it was spic’n span clean again.

Whewf. I love. Ideally I’d like it much more cleaned off than it already is right now. But hey, it’s a work in progress.

  1. I think I had the same desk a few years back. I bought it when I moved to Ontario too! (But sols it when we moved home a year later). It does the trick but I do agree with, the Ikea table would be slick. Sigh, I miss Ikea.
