Organized in a Box at the RLS Office

It’s been quite a week here at the Real Life Style household. First my husband and I got some weird bug, which we had to slog through while taking care of the kids and working. Just as we recovered, BOTH kids came down with pink eye. One after the other, like dominoes. I’m sure everyone else’s week was messed up due to the snow. The snow had nothing on us! The most recurring compliment I receive on this blog is the consistency in which we publish. Well… you ARE getting the blog this week but it has turned into a Friday blog, not a Thursday blog. Thanks for understanding!

One bright spot in the midst of all this chaos has been my now beautifully organized desk. The desk goes through phases, like all areas of one’s workspace. Sometimes it is neater than other times. (Ok, Kyle’s side is always neat) However, nothing makes me feel more out of control than a week (like this one) when I am desperately trying to make it back to my desk and work, and the desk is a disaster. Having instituted our “Organized in a Box” Playbook and accessories on Monday, I actually felt calm every time I looked over at my unoccupied desk (as opposed to panic).

As Rachel Rosenthal, creator of OIAB, says:

We know that hiring a professional organizer isn’t always realistic. But, neither is living with disorganization. That is why we created The Playbook —  an easy-to-follow guide written by professional organizers. It is different from the other books out there, because it is broken down by individual rooms in your home; then each room is broken down into easy actionable steps. The Playbook includes tips on getting started, cheat sheets on how and when to let things go and even product recommendations.

We used The Playbook for our desk but it addresses the rest of your house too and boy does it get you motivated to get organized! OIAB includes The Playbook as well as brightly colored accessories from Poppin to assist you with your organization. We chose purple (of course) but OIAB also comes in white, hot pink, coral, lime green and a gorgeous acqua blue. Already have all of the organizational accessories you need? Don’t worry, you can purchase the OIAB mini. Keep scrolling down for more pictures and buy your own Organized in a Box here!
