Our New Office (Part Two)

Welcome to Our Office (Part Two)

Since where was SO much to show you in our new office, the last post went a little long...and so I've split it up unto a second post.  Please let me know what you like, what questions you have, and what else you'd like to see!  We've been working in the new office for a little over a month and we're loving it.  The only thing we DON'T have set up yet is our photo studio...more on that coming soon! ...

Our New Office

Marker Organization

The last few months have been spent doing a lot of moving and shaking here at The Joyful Organizer. And by that I mean literal moving, and packing, and taping, and labeling, and planning. We're moving into a new office space and for the first time ever, it's a dedicated space just for Joyful Organizer activities. It's thrilling to be able to plan a space from scratch and to be able to do ...

My Weekly Calendar

Three By Three

My schedule isn't straight forward. I don't work a 9-5 job and I'm always working on various client projects, Joyful Organizer tasks, and of course, I try and find time to eat and sleep.  It's not easy to make sure it all fits in.  I find that if I don't make a plan, all hell breaks loose. I wanted to share how I keep track of everything and what tools I use to do it. Please note that Three By ...

I've been blogging for 6 years now.  It's hard to believe right?  It's even harder to believe I'm coming up on my ten year business anniversary.  I've been incredibly blessed and I'm thrilled to be able to do what I do.  I love my readers, my clients, and organization.  However, just like anyone, there are times where I need a little inspiration myself. My Love Hate Relationship With ...

Back To School Essentials

Back To School Gear

It's that time of year again....time to prepare the kids to head back to school!  It's hard to believe that the summer months are coming to an end.  However, taking a little time out of your day at the pool to prepare, will ensure your school year starts off smoothly.  This year, I wanted to gather some gear that I'm crushing on personally.  These are things I'm using and enjoying, even in my ...

Desk Organizing Gets Pretty

MS Desk Caddy

I'm a big fan of an organized desk.  If my desk is messy, it decreases productivity.  When clutter accumulates, it's difficult to prioritize.  It's also difficult to work when you have no space.  I've been on a quest to design a new home office and I've been on the lookout for new tools and organizing solutions that help me keep things on my desk, but not in the way.  Here's what I've ...

My Mobile Office

Desk Drawer Organization

As you know, I work from home.  I do have an office and it's where I work, most of the time.  However, sometimes I like to work from my living room (usually during the cooler winter months or when I'm desperately behind on TV), or a project necessitates I need a bigger working surface and I move to my kitchen table.  Pair these "travel" needs with the fact that my home made desk has NO drawers, ...
