After reading all the creative tips and stuff you guys do to keep organized I don't feel quite so obsessive (and I admit, I am a Post-it note, notepad, index card and notebook collector/addict, too. One can never have too many places to jot down the occasional killer line of dialogue.)

One last tip: I gave up my office supply closet a couple years ago and started keeping my office supplies on shelves in the bookroom where I could always clearly see what I had (the photo over there is of my notepad shelf, where all my Post-its live.) It was nice to have everything out of boxes and bins and stored in the open, plus it also keeps me from buying things I don't need.

We put the magic hat in motion, and the winner of the Neat Writer Stuff giveaway is:

  1. I love those wire shelves. Are they a standing unit and where did you get them?

    I think it's pretty clear that you're a visual learner.

    I read an article about learning styles that said that we visual learners need what we're working on to be in sight. If it's in a file folder, it doesn't exist for me. Therefore, my desk is organized chaos.

  3. Congrats to Robin! Lucky lucky. :P haha.

    I currently have about sixteen notebooks. ;) needless to say, I can be called a notebook collector as well.

    Those were also a buy from Target that I got a couple years ago. They're nice and sturdy, although each cube is only rated for a max of 50 lbs. so it's not for heavy items. One box = enough panels and snap-together connectors to make six cubes.

    I looked on Target's web site to see if they still sell them, but they don't carry the exact color anymore. They do have these storage cubes which are identical; just multi-colored and you can only build four cubes out of one set. Also, I think mine only cost about $15.00 a box so they've gone up in price, but it's still a cheaper alternative to heavier/bigger shelving.

  5. Darlene, I did pay less for mine -- I found the post that I wrote up on the shelving in the archives here, and three years ago they cost $14.99 on sale.
