Clutter Free Classroom Project

I'm a little late jumping on this band wagon, but better late than never, right? I absolutely love the tips from one of my favorite blogs, Clutter-Free Classroom, and I've decided to join up with her Clutter Free Classroom Project, starting with #5:
I started with this particular project because my teacher area is usually the LAST thing that I worry about! I'm so busy working with the kiddos that my area becomes a place to pile papers or whatever until I can get to them later, resulting in a huge mess. I delayed posting this because I wanted to test myself and see if I could actually stick with my newly cleaned, organized area. I did!!! Check out my results:
Most of the items you see here were just piled there waiting to be put away! My days of the week drawers were piled on top (sorry you can't see that in the picture). And can you see my lesson plans taped to the computer CPU? 

Ah! Neatness! And you can see the top of my desk! I'll have to add some photos showing the desktop (forgot to take them). 

The result: I feel like I can think more clearly and find things more easily. I "found" some things I thought I'd lost. I have a clean, clear work space for grading papers and doing lesson plans. Love it!

Still to do: Clean out the files and drawers in my desk. They're not so bad, as I organized them over the summer, but they need a little attention.
