We will be house hunting in the next several weeks and a separate office is on my must-have list. Right now it is in my family room so as clean and organized as I keep my family room, my chaotic office makes for an eye sore. I had no real organization system so I was constantly cleaning and in no time looked like it does below in my before photo. So I gathered my favorite items, shopped Amazon, Kohls and Magnolia Store for a mini office makeover. Here is the end result….
It was that empty space on the floor that needed the most help so I searched high and low for a matching table and found one at Kohl’s. Now my printer would have a new space instead of taking up room on my desk.
Because I an an HP Mom Blogger, I am very familiar with the advantages of having and HP Envy printer. Because I have a new printer table it was time for a new Envy. My old one will go to our son in college who will need one next year when he switches rooms and I get the HP Envy 7640. It prints, faxes, scans and copies all in photo quality print.
I am not saying I love HP Envy just because I am an ambassador. I would say I am an ambassador because I love the Instant Ink program with my HP printers. The HP Envy’s allow for this service. I do not print too often so I am on the $2.99/month plan.
My HP Instant Ink account is connected to my printer and it knows when I am getting low on ink and automatically mails me more. I never run out, never have that sudden $40 ink run to the store. I pay $3 a month and that’s it. There are plans for those that print more but it all saves you tremendously on ink at the retail stores. That is why I will sign our College student up next fall for his printing needs.
My newest decor piece is my AmbrosiaScents canister. I simply put in a scented sachet or add my own essential oils to one and turn it on. I get light, music and fragrance. Doesn’t it look pretty?
With myself, the boys and my husband constantly needing devices charged this myCharge HUBXtra portable charger is my office away from home. I keep it charged and when I pack my laptop, planner and tablets this comes with so I have charge wherever I go with lightning or micro-usb charging cords.
I also love my new desk lighting. I found this at Amazon. It is the LEDMO Dimmable LED desk lamp with temperature, clock and date feature and a mode to change the intensity of the light with a tab of the base.
This was my splurge. I love Fixer Upper as I am an HDTV fanatic. The Magnolia Market Online Store is my favorite online store and I chose this wood calendar and the tin can for a pen holder and tray for loose papers. Always remember about the importance of proper home’s temperature and fresh air, especially in the summer months. Check out this guide from the Unclutterer on the best box fans that will help you to choose the perfect one for your home office.
I also have a NixPlay I have had for a while with photos that are in slideshow mode.
I also chose this sign from the Magnolia Market. It is simple and has a great office message. When we move I will rehange without nails so it has no tacks showing.
And there you have my new space.
