My desk was an enormous gargantuan mess and I was unwilling to actually DEAL with it. A big part of the problem was my nail polish storage. It was inadequate to the point of overflowing. I decided I couldn’t do anything about the desk until the nail polish was dealt with. Until I finally got fed up, decided that having a livable habitat was worth making it a priority, and bought new storage. (Yes, I could have gotten rid of polishes, but I quite like my stash and chose not to. Plus the drawer set only cost $15 and looks nicer.) Suddenly, NO MORE EXCUSES! I even set the top tray of the paper-tray-thing for “stuff I’ll get around to later” to avoid the mountain of clutter on top of my next project, Mount Coffee Table.
