It’s that time of year! School is back in session, fall is in the air and 2017 is just around the corner (yikes!). It’s a time when moms and students everywhere are challenged to keep their new schedules, events and activities organized. Keeping a calendar is an essential part in helping manage your daily activities and prioritize your time. It’s also a great way to kick off a new school year and get 2017 off on the right foot. Also, keeping organized helps relieve stress. When kept up-to-date, a planner allows you to find information quickly, prioritize effectively and schedule appointments on the spot.

Even though I’ve started to schedule my appointments on my iphone calendar, I still like keeping an old school day planner. I actually enjoy the process writing down appointments, events and day-to-day tasks in a traditional daily planner. Because there are so many stylish designs in a variety of price points, it was tough to narrow down my favorites!

Fresh + Chic Work Spaces

As my own home renovation goes into full swing, I’m finding it harder and harder to keep everything organized. I have to admit it drives me a little crazy to not have spot for everything, but I know it’s for a short period of time. I also think it’s healthy for me to have to let go a little. One small area I’m trying to keep organized is my work space. Although that’s been a struggle to keep neat too! So in the spirit of organized desks, I’m sharing a few fresh and chic work spaces captured by photographer, Hannah Blackmore.

My Office + Organized Home Office Products

Once you get on an organizing roll, it’s hard to stop (at least for me!)  After organizing my desk, it motivated me to tackle my bookcases in my home office. They really weren’t bad, but needed to be streamlined and I wanted them to have a refreshed look.  To help me reach my goal, the folks at See Jane Work at Office Depot asked me to select items from their new collection. Combining fresh style and organization, the See Jane Work collection offers super stylish office accessories in a variety of fun patterns (chevron, herringbone, stripes florals, and more) and color palettes (aqua blue, shades of pink, black, white, and more). They are perfect for mixing and matching. Best yet, they are really affordable!

To coordinate with items I already owned, I selected items from the See Jane Work Collection in hues of aqua and white. To corral my kids artwork and over-sized school papers, I picked at a pair of decorative art boxes. I love them. They have an overlapping magnetic lid closure which is really slick! I also added a few white magazine files to conceal mismatched file folders, shelter magazines and home decor catalogs. Adding pops of white can help a space look fresh, airy and modern.

To keep my active product samples easy to get to, I selected a fabric bin with fun grommet handles and herringbone detail inside.

My client projects are organized using binders. When I spotted the herringbone in blue, I knew they’d work with my shelf and company’s image. Next to the binders, I placed a series of white decorative storage boxes. They are now used to organize my fabric samples by color.

I can’t tell you how many readers say, “I saw a hexagon or honeycomb pattern and thought of Simplified Bee.” As a nod to the shape, I added a new art print and placed it next to a current fave – succulents.

I also picked up this darling “Be Brave” print as a reminder that God is with me at all times.

I love my “new” bookcase! What’s your favorite element?

Happy organizing,

Cristin

Getting Organized :: Stylish Desk Accessories

As we look forward to 2014, many of us are setting new year’s goals and resolutions. High on most lists is getting organized (no surprise here I’m sure!). For me I struggle with desk organization and aim to keep it more tidy this coming year. The right desk accessories are key to creating an efficient work-space, yet so many are ho-hum and aren’t pretty. That’s why I’m thrilled about teaming up with See Jane Work at Office Depot to help me create a beautiful, streamlined desk that reflects my personal style. Their collection combines fresh style and smart organization – can’t get better than that! See Jane Work’s chic office accessories come in fresh patterns and color palettes perfect for mixing and matching. I selected items in hues of blue, pink and white and love how it coordinates with the items I already owned.
