Before: A Cluttered Catchall

Like most desks, this area had become a place where items simply piled up making it useless as a home office.

Clean Out and Organize

Remove everything from the messy area and sort items into three bins: donate, store and trash. This is a great time to purge things you've collected but no longer need or use. A good rule of thumb: If you can't remember the last time you used it (or have forgotten you even owned it) it's time to let it go.

Make a Plan

Once shelves are completely empty, decide how you want the space to function and appear.
