I spend time at my desk these days doing everything from homeschooling, taking writing classes, researching dinner recipes and working on this blog. Because of this, my workspace is constantly changing. Trying to minimize clutter in a multi use space is a constant thing. Making the space as beautiful and comfortable matter immensely. Oh, let me not forget that our homeschool/writing room is also our guest room!
So, how do I stay organized? My husband would prefer that I say I have everything organized and accessible online but it is not. I’m a paper planner kinda gal. Here are my go to items:
*Blue Sky Academic Planner I am not in school but I just love that I don’t have to change planners at the end of the year. I know its strange but with having school age kids it just makes sense in my brain to stay on the school schedule routine (even with homeschooling). I use this for all this except homeschool stuff.
*Well Planned Gal Homeschool Planner
*Five Star notebook because, again, I like pen and paper more than computers.
*Post It Notes These help me flesh out quick ideas. Admittedly… before they go to my notebook or planner… before it makes it onto a computer file. Stop judging. It works for me!
*Bath & Body Works candles. I’m currently burning Cactus Blossom.
What’s on your desk that helps you become the writer?
