I am always looking for new, more effective ways to keep myself (and my household) organised. It becomes almost a challenge to find that perfect system that works 'kink' free, so whilst on the hunt for that 'perfect' system, I have been on the lookout for a new, larger office desk for a while as my previous layout was feeling a little cramped.
I looked around on sites such as Gumtree for a while however the price range for the type of office desk/ furniture I was looking to upgrade to, was favouring the $300 and upwards... so I kept looking.
After a few weeks however, just like my $1 Filofax.... I struck lucky!
There it was, $70 of pure greatness, solid wood, complete with 6 spacious drawers and boasting plenty of space for everything that I use on my desk daily... Then.. not even 2 weeks later I found my new filing storage unit for $15 at a garage sale. It was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't mind paying $15 for it after we only paid $2 for our DVD stand. Bargain Buys!

|I much prefer the hanging files to our old filing system|
Plus, I am able to see what stationary items I am running low on/ have too much of, when they've all got their own designated spot in my drawer.
I also picked up some purple desk top organisers from Kmart for around $2 - $5, these house spare cords, stickers for my planner and spare note pads. Out of the way, but still easily accessible if I ever need them.
I store an assortment of magazines on my desk (wedding, health and cooking) as they are all relevant to the planning/ organising I do. I avoid buying gossip magazines, and opt to only keep relevant material around... aiming to inspire ones self and all of that positive goodness. With only 10 months remaining until our wedding, it's always encouraging for me to have bridal magazines close by to gently remind me don't slack off, you're getting married soon!
So that's my Home Office Desk Organisation Layout, the revised edition nevertheless
