I stumbled across this beautiful box from Things That Are Pretty on Pinterest. When closed, it looks like just another cute box that you see in those chic, streamlined, all-white office photos in magazines. But when opened, you realize that it has everything you need for a productive office day...and its actually the stuff that usually clutters your desk.
I am a sucker for anything organizational...and recently have embarked upon a preparatory journey to downsize in anticipation of moving to a small apartment in an urban metropolis as well as starting a busy life as a graduate student. Over the past 5 years I've enjoyed coming home to a "homey" apartment, but sometimes you just have to realize that the right comforter is all the decoration you need. Either way, I am constantly pinning new ideas to my Organization, Office Spaces, and Downsize Pinterest boards.
I mean, who can resist these offices?
Sorry! Back to office-in-a-box. I did a quick Google search of "office box" to see what would come up...and no DIY projects returned, but a number of great office tools did. It seems like they come out with new box-binder-whatever! contraptions for organization and ease of travel these days, and its just too fast to keep up with. Another good search would be "portable office". I found this portable office post from OrgJunkie.
Whenever you organize, it's important to personalize. What works for the blogger you got the idea from might not work for you! Take the time to research what's out there, fit it to your space and to your needs, and go from there. Here's some examples of those nifty office organization items I found. Good luck to you!
