Tidying up while in quarantine

  1. So! How are you? How's quarantine life treating you? Well, I hope all is well and everyone in your family is staying safe and healthy.

When life gives you lemons, make a lemonade! Right? In my case, I ORGANIZE! I have 2 kids and both are in school. Art works and take-home-school-works overwhelms our home if not stored properly and immediately, especially that all school works are being done at home nowadays.

I took advantage of the extra time I got from this shelter-at-home order and made this little school supply corner next to my desk, it's simple, cheap and clean!

To be quite honest, my printer was just laying on one of the "storage" legs of my desk for quite some time, until I couldn't take the look of it anymore, so I purchased this cube organizer at Target (not an #ad). It was easy to assemble and took me about 20 minutes give or take, not bad at all! I believe Ikea has something similar, (I'm just not too sure if they have the 2 cube storage ones, but anyway, I'm satisfied with my purchase, it serves its purpose and that's all that matters.)

This is what's inside the basket (the basket is also from Target). I decided to toss the crayola boxes and used a clear paint bucket instead, it's much more sturdier, cuter and easier to grab. So far, this set up's been working well with the kids and I. My kids are responsible enough to put everything back in place after use (thank goodness!). I will provide the links of everything I shared with you, just click on the photo tabs below. Anyhow, happy organizing! And remember, "simplify to thrive!"
