Great topic ladies!! My problem is NOT the computer desk so much as the other desk behind me with all the scrapbook stuff, old homeschooliong stuff (YES< I still have a bit of that stuffed in drawers) and our bills too! I am interested in your ideas of how to reclaim space, Love the wire baskets for the bills idea. Will keep "listening in" on this subject

Barbszy, my desk is in the main family area too. No pics today, but I might try for a 'before and after' in the next couple of days! I'll see how I go.
Every day we write a memory on the heart of our family. What memories did you write today?

The computer I use most of the time is in a family area also.

Here is a pic of mine.

I like that idea... I will have to make a note of it perhaps for the future!

I keep the bills in the kitchen in a small envelope holder by the phone. Dh seems to like to put everything next to that phone, so that seems to work out better as far as paying them on time. Then they get filed in the "office."

We have a room for a home office since both dh and I have worked at home at different times, so we have two desks back to back with walking space in-between. Yesterday I went through all the drawers in the desks and other drawers and pen holders in the house and threw away all the pens and markers that had dried out. I didn't count them but there must have been over 200, including two full boxes that had not even been used yet. I don't know how we ended up with so many. Its nice to open the desk drawers and see them organized.

I want a office/den/library whatever you want to call it in my next house. I can give up a dining room for it. I think.

I like the looks of the computer cabinets that you shut the doors and ta da computer is gone!

What is it that gets piled up in your kitchen? Paperwork? I have one drawer in my kitchen designated for paperwork, bills, mail, etc... I keep the items in the drawer organized with folders and small, plastic bins...
