Simplify in Style – Martha Stewart Home Office

November 14, 2012 by 265 Comments

I totally love organization! The biggest mystery for my boys is trying to understand why mommy likes a clean house! I often remind myself that one day I’ll miss the dirty socks and wet towels scattered throughout the house. I wish I could say the extent of mess around here is always my sweeties…this desk of mine can clutter fast!

I anxiously awaited for a box to arrive on my front door after accepting an offer to review some products from Martha Stewart Home Office™ with Avery™ sold exclusively at Staples. Just prior to receiving the offer, one of my sisters and I had a great conversation about the age-old question, ‘When is the best time to get organized!?!’ My thought was January…her suggestion was now…with anticipated family and friends visiting over the holidays! My sister’s response was right on! Why wait!? The Stack+Fit™ modular system from Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery makes it easy to create a custom organization system in exactly the size and configuration you need.

Often I think that organizing a specific area of my house is going to take too long, but I’m always amazed that with the right system, it doesn’t have to be time consuming or hard! In my office, I have drawers that the whole family uses. Being able to place these Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery Chalkboard Labels that you can write on, erase, and write on again, I have been amazed that items really can be returned where they belong! I will definitely be picking up another pack for my boys’ closet bins…and their dresser drawers, too!

I totally love my new Shagreen Pocket which includes matching pushpins to hang pockets on walls or corkboards. I placed these expandable pockets in my laundry room which is the most neglected room in the house…it screams to be brought into this century…and I have to say this cheerful pocket definitely made a huge improvement! Love it!

I have lots of random papers in the file drawer of my desk. Sadly, the file drawer doesn’t have any files, just loose paper! I’m so excited about my new Shagreen accordion files. It stands freely for easy sorting and filing. The beautiful colors coordinate with binders and file folder labels from Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery.

The holidays really are the perfect excuse to get organized!! I’m so excited about Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery’s new shipping products, too! They are durable enough to mail and pretty enough to go right under the tree. They offer beautiful shipping paper, tape, padded envelopes, and printable mailing labels, these items are sold only in-store at Staples.

I’m going to get these packages in the mail before long….I love how festive they are! I asked if anyone had started getting ready for Christmas and was shocked that so many of you have already completed your shopping! That’s awesome!!! Speaking of GIFTS…how about a giveaway!?!

So here’s my question for you: What is your biggest clutter issue!?! Answer in the comments below as your first entry for a chance to win an AWESOME $100 Staples Gift Card! See the details below.

  27. LouiseM says:

    #1 is my basement work office -

  28. Teresa@SagebrushRidge says:

    Our family seems to dump everything in my kitchen. I am seriously considering giving up a cupboard specifically to act as a command center for all of the stuff we seem to bring into this house daily. My island needs to stop being the dumping ground…sigh.

    Mail collecting on our desk is my biggest clutter issue.

    Danbeverly@hotmail.com

  36. Diane says:

    No question about it-I get extremely cluttered by printing out recipes, then letting them stack up before trying them. I don’t keep them on my computer as it’s easier for me to thumb thru them physically…but it does stack up so I need to file them.

  37. kesha says:

    My biggest clutter issue is my closet! It simply is not big enough!

  38. Cindy says:

    My biggest issue is my paper clutter.

  39. Christine says:

    This post comes at the perfect time for me. Our command central is in our kitchen. We have an open concept kitchen and living room. We throw the mail, school papers, coupons and to do lists in a pile. My husband travels a lot so his cluttered mess sits as a cluttered mess until he gets home. I want some pretty organization storage for this area! Thank you for the helpful post.

Well, the kids are now 10 and 13 years old and it has become the paper, pencil, ipod/kindle/dsi charging station, lost pony-tail holder keeper, pennies/coins drop station, etc…… As you can tell by my wordiness…. this is truly my clutter issue in my home!!!

  80. Sarah Hirsch says:

    my biggest clutter issue is my kids’ toys

Well needless to say there is a pile at least 2 feet tall on it right now! All the mail that comes, bills that need to be paid, magazines, grocery list, to do lists…it goes on and on. I could really use some help on de-cluttering this and getting my table back for more important uses like candles and picture frames, etc. Thanks for the chance for some help!

  142. joni says:

    My kitchen counters are where everything gets thrown.

  143. sy says:

    My biggest issue is everything is laying horizontal in stacks and there’re too many things on the floor. The hanging pockets are a great way to utilize wall space, I was thinking something similar. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

  144. Tari Lawson says:

  146. Becky U says:

    Mine is yarn! Right now I have them stacked in bins but I can’t see what’s in there without having to go through them all. Clear ones would be great and something I would get with the gift card. Thanks for the giveaway!

  147. Heather says:

    I’d say my biggest clutter issue is the ‘outgrown clothing’ basket in the back of our walk-in closet. Our son is 12 and growing by leaps and bounds – he seems to outgrow everything he has in just a matter of months – so before I can get his hand-me-downs passed along to another family, he’s putting more into an already full basket – and because it’s ‘out of sight out of mind’ I don’t deal with it until I can’t open the closet door LOL!

  148. Georgette says:

    Definitely, my biggest clutter problem is paper! I have the hardest time knowing the best way to file/organize/purge/store/sort…Paper seems to absolutely consume our home at times!

  149. My biggest clutter issue is the table by the front door. It becomes a catch all for mail, junk and anything without a proper home.

  150. Diana - Highland, IL says:

    The biggest clutter issue is my desk, since I work at home and then it must multi-task for the rest of my life as well, but also the coffee table.. it collects things without me even knowing it!!! mostly magazines, but also other things as well! It is very sneaky!! LOL..

  151. This Martha Stewart Collection at Staples is AMAZING. I cannot say enough about it. I want one of everything. My biggest clutter issue is everything because I work in so many different types of crafting i cannot manage it. For the house, it is the paperwork!

  152. JOan G says:

    My desk is a huge pile of papers. And bills just get put in a pile in front of my computer.
    these organizers would make a great clean “organized” desk for sure.

  169. Paperwork is my biggest clutter issue. I have bills, work papers, school papers, etc all over the house!

  170. Suzanne Dwyer says:

    My biggest clutter issue is the same as one of my greatest joys…my children’s school work and art projects. I can’t get them organized and I can’t get rid of them!

  171. Staci M Torgerson says:

    I’ve conquered most clutter issues thus far: kids school art/work….each his a drawer to stash theirs in. At the end of the yr each gets a vintage suitcase and in it all goes…they can deal with it once they get older. I frame all the amazing art every could of months. Mail…gets opened immediately, trashed if junk, bills go in folder everything else is filed in a black box for that yr. Magazines all have mag. storage boxes that they go in once I’ve torn everything out that I want to refer back to.

    My problem is printing all fabulous ideas and tutorials on things I want to make or just have on file in case a friend ever needs me to come up with something. I can nt possibly print it all. I have Pinterest about as full as a full time professional Pinterest…they could put me on their payroll. How does everyone else store/save all the fantastic blog ideas you want????

  172. Claire says:

    I have a lot of craft supplies that I’m not quite sure how to organize, so they’re all cluttering up my desk.

    recently out of college, my biggest clutter issue is definitely regarding the amount i space i have available to me in my apartment in boston. it would be great to be able to organize paperwork and bills since i don’t have an actual office in my place.

    thanks so much for the giveaway :)

  174. Lisa McGrattan says:

    My biggest clutter issues are my piles around the house. I have a pile on the table, couch and dresser just to name a few.

  175. Geoff K says:

    It would have to be the huge assortment of catalogs and magazines that always seem to pile up waiting to be read — they take over our home office and bedroom, and there’s never any rhyme or reason to it!

  176. Marji says:

    Extra craft materials that are not being used right away.

  177. dani marie says:

    my room in general. i have too much stuff. papers everywhere!

  178. Annalea says:

    Paper. Paper paper paper paper . . . specifically on my desk. (You should see the piles on either side of my imac!) My desk **could** look like yours (I have all the same electronics ;o). Thanks for the inspiration!

  179. Thomas Murphy says:

    my biggest clutter is my dvd collection

    My biggest clutter issue is the end of the kitchen counter. It seems everything ends up there. Thanks

  181. Daniel M says:

    too much paperwork, it’s everywhere!

  182. Lee says:

    My home office is in serious need of de-cluttering.

  183. Rosanne says:

    My biggest clutter issue hands down is paper. In boxes, drawers baskets and I have a hard time getting rid of it.

  184. Gaye M says:

    My desk area is a disaster – seems like everything gets put there because it’s “handy” and there are lots of shelves and cubbies.

  185. Angela Cisco says:

    Our biggest clutter issue is our clothes. We have so much but no where to put it all.

  186. April V. says:

    My biggest clutter issue are my crafts. Because we’ve been pretty much paycheck to paycheck for the past few years and we’ve lived in small rented places, I don’t have any permanent place for my craft items. They are all in tubs but if I want to do anything I have to bring them all out and spread them around on the floor. And I either finish what I’m doing in one day and put it away or it stays all over the floor, much to my husband’s disgust!

  187. MelissaO says:

    My biggest clutter issue is incoming mail…I keep meaning to organize it and it just piles up and then I just don’t want to face it.

  189. erica says:

    My biggest clutter issue is the kitchen table because it’s where all the mail gets thrown on

  190. Jill L says:

    I seriously have too many crafts supplies. No idea how to even deal with them all. Lots and lots of paper.

  191. Erica C. says:

    My biggest clutter is my mail and menu phamplets. I really need to separate the two and organize them.

  192. Joseph says:

    My biggest clutter issue what seems like the never ending magazines/catalogs I receive each week in the mail. They end up stacking up over 2 ft high before I get a chance to look/read them.

  193. Carri says:

    Ooo, love these organizational tools, thanks for sharing. My biggest clutter problem is my desk. Everyone (including me) dumps papers and random junk on it constantly!

  194. Crystal F says:

    the desk in the living room. It seems like everything just gets thrown there as we come in the door. Thank you!

  203. Norma says:

    Mail is my biggest clutter issue – especially bills!

  204. LAMusing says:

    We don’t have a garage and only a small “storage” area – so things that don’t have a home somehow end up shoved in the corners of my bedroom.

  205. angie says:

    My biggest clutter problem is in the kitchen. I don’t have hardly any storage for pantry foods, so over 1/2 my actual kitchen table is always full of shelf stable foods!

  206. Carmen says:

    We haven’t figured out a good way to deal with incoming mail, bills and other papers that need to be dealt with.

  207. Bailey says:
