It seems appropriate that I've been procrastinating this blog post, considering it's about getting organized. It's a new year for New Leaf, and I have great goals of how organized I'll be this year, while more than likely, things will remain as ever. Putting things off till the last minute, my mess of a workspace overflowing until I have to do something about it in order to see the actual desk... Though you wouldn't know it by looking at the mounds of clutter surrounding my work area, I really do love being organized. I've been finding some great tools for staying organized, both in record keeping and in physical office space, so I thought I'd share a few of these gems.
I love baskets -it's so easy to toss stuff into them, but if you have lots, there's still some organization, and they hide things so well. These are from sewingmomma on Etsy. I love the neutral linen fabric with the flowers to spruce them up.
What kind of a shop owner would I be if I didn't plug my own goods? Really though, I have one of these memo boards above my desk. Not only does it look lovely, it helps keep stray bits of paper organized. Where to find yours? At newleafhandmade on Etsy, of course.
Again, I love places to stash things. I also like the idea of them stuck to the wall, unable to disappear. You can find these and ones in other styles from Thitaree on Etsy.

And if I had space for some bigger things:
