Home Organization : My Kitchen Office { Video , Pictures, and Info }

Thursday, August 22, 2013


I have a few different office spaces in my home. I think its important to have dedicated areas through out our house for office items. We have a large house and I have 3 different office areas. The kitchen office, the office upstairs on the 2nd floor and my office in a basket ( which is my favorite ). Today I am just going over the kitchen office and will be have videos up of the other areas soon. 

More pictures and lots more info below.. hope you enjoy!

1. Dry Erase Calender & Other Important Calenders: that is updated weekly. It holds all the activities that is going on with our family and kids. I like that its a dry erase board because things change and I hate it when the calender gets messed up. With this kind of calender, you can wipe it off if you make a mistake and start over. This area also holds the school calender and lunch schedule. Any important calenders or schedules go in this area. Also under the cabinet area is a long florescent light that gives plenty of light even if working at night. 

2. I keep the middle part of this area open so I can move a bar stool over and put my laptop in this area. I like having a space for the computer away from the mess of the food and stove. So this is a safe spot for the electronics. 

3. Over to the right I have coupons and a note pad that have magnets and stuck to the frig. At the back of the counter, I keep my most loved and used cook books and I just use a large mug as the bookend. I didn't want anything bulky and I wanted something that would hold the books and still be useful. The cup holds pens, pencils, and highlighters. I also keep a handy calculator in that area too. 

4. In the middle, there is a bowl for change and car keys. I also have a piece of art that was a gift from another blogger. I also keep the kitty treats and some cute sentimental items. 

5. On the left side I have a big picture of us from 2009 and I keep a basket for incoming mail and papers to be filed. It also holds one of my coupon organizers too. I have a different one for my purse but I use this one a lot too. At the beginning of each week, I file the papers from the basket in the office upstairs. 

6. In the cabinet above I use a small space to store my local phone book, extra paper and notebooks. I have some emergency candles in that area and I also have some light bulbs ( that actually should be stored in another place! )

7. The two drawers below hold a lot of miscellaneous office, household, pet,  and other random items. I have it sorted out pretty well and everything stays in place. I think my entire family prefers this kind of junk drawer rather than a messy one where they can't find anything. Another tip, use left over Tupperware that can't find lids for storage. They work great!

I find that this kitchen office works really well for my family. And even if you only have a very small amount of space to work with, it can be accomplished in any kitchen. You could combine the office in a basket with the kitchen if you need more room too. And you could easily store it in a cabinet. 

Stay tuned for my other office and organizational  videos!
