Makeover: Spare Office/School Supplies Closet

Summer is the perfect time to get your school/office supplies closet in order. This will allow you to see everything you have, toss what's been "over-loved" and only purchase what you need for the upcoming school year.

Folders - ROYGBIV style

We pulled everything out and sorted like with like. From there, we tossed everything that had seen better days and/or would never be used again. With the remaining, We container-ed everybody up in a way that made good sense. This client has two boys so it's especially important that it all remained simple - if it isn't sports related, the boys don't care!

I even had a bit of an OCD ROY.G.BIV moment with the folders (see right)

After everything had been container-ed up, I put everything back into the closet. Most used would go to eye level with the less often it being used going towards the top and bottom.
