Monday presents its unique set of challenges…including how to get that overflowing desk organized!   Take a cue from Country Home and upcycle vintage ladles to keep your paperclips and stamps in place, or follow Better Homes & Garden’s lead and put a repurposed fork in your to-do lists or inspirational mementos.  I hope your Monday is off to an inspirational, marvelous start!

Pesky Subscription Cards = Upcycling Genius!

Sep 29, 2008 by

Are you pestered by those inconvenient subscription cards that fumble out of every magazine?  Etsy seller Ugly Kitty was, and she decided to upcycle the cards (along with other vintage papers) into address files, held by a vintage recipe box (currently available for $65 via her waiting list).

Of course!!!  With the name, address, and email lines, magazine subscription cards make perfect repurposed personal address cards.  This upcycling idea makes me want to get organized before mailing out Christmas cards.  How do you keep all your friends and families’ addresses organized?

Upcycled Organization Ideas

Sep 22, 2008 by

Monday always prompts me to re-organize my desk to prepare for a fresh week.  This weekend, I picked up an obsolete slide holder — and thought it would be lovely for a stylish desktop organization tool for the shop.

I’m also always looking to maximize my wall real estate, and this DIY project from GreenUpgrader adds a hint of shine and vintage industrial style to your office.  It is made of upcycled metal cans, great for stashing away notes, paperclips, letters, and stamps– although I think it would be interesting to use old metal cans that still have the vintage labels!

For a more rustic feel, this desk organizer from Farmhouse Wares is made of recycled garden wood…and I love the fact that you can open and close it for instant de-cluttering.

How do you organize your desks and workspaces?  What creative ways do you de-clutter your desks?  I’d love to hear about your desktop inspirations!
