seasonal organizing.

In the recent West Elm catalog, I couldn't help but notice all the organizing vesicles {don't get me wrong, I was lusting after rugs and desks, etc.}.  Anyone else?  The photographs of the stacked boxes and magazine file folders {might} inspire me to finish organizing my desk...

There are two times of the year that I tend to organize, de clutter, donate, etc.  The obvious is Spring, but I also tend to do a bit of purging in the Fall.  Perhaps it's to make room for a few fun fall purchases? Or the buzzing energy of school starting?  This weekend I plan to tackle the closet to make room for heavy sweaters...oh, and maybe that desk.

When do you organize, declutter, purge?

  4. I try to keep on top of things by organizing frequently. It helps to have a designated spot for things, or a container. I love baskets, trays, boxes and to be able to find things is key!

  6. Love this post - I just got the West Elm Parsons Desk in Polished Tumeric. It is so pretty that I must make sure to keep it organized! I tend to purge year-round. I hate having extra things and only hold onto items I love. I learned it from my mom; she is a true bulldozer at heart!

  7. YAY! love your organizing posts-- that's why I follow your blog. I have been doing tons of organizing this week, and proudly started my first very own filing cabinet! (no more sharing with husband). This weekend we are going to a place called The Container Store. I've never been, but I imagine it will be simply magical. :)

  8. I declutter and throw out stuff pretty much constantly. I'm VERY good at organizing, yet find I am very BAD at keeping things organized. Hence, my need to continue doing so. One day I'll get it right:)
