My Dirty Little Secret

filed under: Miscellaneous on January 31, 2010

I have a dirty little secret.

And when I say dirty, I mean filthy.  Foul.  Obscene.  Offensive.

I need professional help with my dirty secret.

But I have to tell someone.  It cant go on any longer.

The silence must be broken.

This is my office.

It is horrendous.  And I cant take it anymore.

This might be hard to read.  It basically says JUNK.  EVERYWHERE.

So I spent some quality time next to a garbage can today. 

Oh, and then I went and cleaned my office.

Look what I found!

Space.  Lots and lots of usable space.  Happy Birthday to me! 

I just might even enjoy sitting at my desk now. 

Do you have any spaces that could use a good before/after photo shoot?

    I literally had to get my hubby to come to the screen and look at your desk to tell him SEE – I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A MESSY DESK! 🙂 Thanks….but then I scrolled down and you just HAD to clean it didn’t you?! Ugh. He saw that pic, too.
    Great job – I need some of that organization in my desk.
