I love an organized office!  I took some time this week when the kids went back to school to do a little cleaning and organizing. I definitely get into all the organizing as soon as I see those school supplies on store shelves – anyone else? Anytime I post a picture of my office I get lots of sourcing questions and today is all about that – answering your questions and sharing where everything is from, all the way down to paint color.  Keep reading!

Here’s a zoomed out picture of the office – it’s a great size with a window but no closet.  I added a corner desk to the small desk on the right and another chair to make it an area where the kids and I could work together but it’s mostly the Clean Mama work zone. On the right side is a large bookcase with cubbies for storage and a filing cabinet – we keep the shredder, computer printer, and docking/charging station for phones and tablets in here as well.

Here’s a little bit more of close-up of the desk area – my laptop is on the right with a large screen monitor, keyboard and mouse, and then I have a desktop computer on the left. Yes, usually I have the calendar filled out and the pinboard filled, but I wanted to start with a clean slate this week.

I chatted about this organizational system in the office before, it’s super simple, but I love it.  I bought this file folder rack for my Homekeeping Planner – pre-order here – and Homekeeping Binder, notepads and notebooks. Instead of having these things propped up on my desk or in a drawer, this system keeps them where I use them and keeps them at the ready. You can find all of the pictured paper goods here in my shop. Do you see that sneak peek? The DIY Cleaning Recipes Pocket Notebook is coming to the shop in September!

Have you seen these clear Post-It Notes? So fun and a great tool for using in a planner or in a notepad.


Here’s a peek in a couple desk drawers – I just used some dishes and containers that I had and fit them together to organize desk items. I love berry baskets and egg trays for organizing. I put the small cafe au lait bowls and the egg tray on an acrylic tray to hold them in place.

Here’s another drawer – similar concept and it keeps things organized and it fits well too!

I love the paint color in this room – it was one of the first rooms we painted when we moved in over 10 years ago and I haven’t changed it.
