Got a New Project! So I'm Decluttering the Office Storage Room....

April 8th, 2014 at 02:32 am

I really didn't think I'd get this project - but I am so pleased I did! It's for a new pavilion (for classes and weddings) and interpretive trails at our Audubon Preserve. I teamed up for the project with a landscape architect who I really admire (and she's very passionate about educational landscapes!).

Anyway, we'll need to sign the contract this week, so I have a few days to clean up the office, particularly the storage room which was really out of control.

I bought 6 boxes at U-Haul (total $22) which were the right size (12x12x24) to store plans. I've been going through every set of plans in the office, putting them in the boxes (which I stacked up in the corner) and inserting a label in them, as well as cataloging which plans are in which box. I should end up with a lot of space on the shelves (I hope so).

Plus I've tossed a ton of old fedex boxes and duplicate plans as well as some design-stage plans which I don't need to keep once projects are complete.

The next step is to toss a bunch of old samples. Samples go out of date quickly; they introduce new colors/patterns/etc. I can give them to a school (they love stuff like that for art projects).

I hope to be done with all of this by tomorrow afternoon so that I can finish up another project (should be fast) and then start the Audubon next week.

I just like a nice clean, organized office so that I can think clearly.

    Wonderful to pass on samples to school for crafts. Controlling current samples for quick and easy retrieval is a major challenge. We do something similar with projects developed on a large flip chart to re-use lay-out ideas that worked particularly well. You might like the larger sized reusable Post-it flags as the sticky bit keeps each roll in place with date and brief identifier for speedy retrieval without damaging the paper.

    How did your refurbished office kitchenette work out?
