Now that I am paying good money to rent a studio for the specific purpose of working, I determined to stay organized. No, for real. I mean it this time. I know I have said that before, but I am on a new path. It’s new. That counts. And I have a new rule too: nothing is coming in this room that does not serve a purpose. Function before form.
For every item I ask myself, Does it bring me joy? Does is directly relate to generating revenue? If I can’t answer yes to at least one of those questions (preferably both) it never crosses the threshold. Bam!
This is a new approach for me so I am investing a lot of energy into keeping organized. Even boring stuff like bills and invoices are going to be kept to a minimum and contained in lovely, colorful fashion. And because my budget is slim-to-nothing, I thought an all-purpose desk caddy would be a good place to start.
It’s colorful. It’s functional. It brings me joy and it pays the bills. Literally. And it was made from stuff I already had in my recycle bin/junk drawer.
Want to make one too? Thought so. Hop on over to Pentel and see how it’s done!
