I’ve had some complaints about my blog. After this post about prettying up my dumping ground, several of my co-workers told me they really wanted to see the “before” shot. Debbie said she needed to see the before picture just to prove that I’m just as messy and cluttered as everyone else. Kerry (whose children are grown) said this is what her desk area ALWAYS looks like! She wanted to see my “before” mess anyway.
Well, I didn’t actually take a before picture, but one week after prettying it up… here it is again.
You’ll notice that the plate stand is empty. We managed to eat all of the cookies and Easter candy. Now, let’s see. I spy field trip papers, hubby’s Lowe’s bag, the goodie bag from the bouncy house party, Costco coupons, a hair brush, the label maker my son thought he needed to use, and an empty vase where the flowers once lived. I guess I’ll need to get that cleaned up before the family comes over for Easter dinner tomorrow.
By the way, here is my new favorite product for the dumping ground. My serge protector was just a jumbled mess. I asked my hubby to keep his eye out for a good, mess free, solution for the kitchen desk area. The other day he came home with this one from Lowe’s. The outlets even turn, so if you have an awkward or oversized plug, it will still work. So smart. Wish I had thought of that.
