When it comes to fresh starts, September is my New Year.  It’s the end of the summer and the start of a brand new school year.  To me, it’s a special fresh start – time to get back to work, clean out, rearrange furniture, make next Summer’s plan, and get ready for my favorite time of the year…Fall.

What I love about September is the newness.  My daughter’s new classroom, new teacher, and a new year.  I also love the quiet in the house.  This gives me the inspiration to clean up my desk from Summer’s clutter, get inspired to clean out my closet, plan out family Fall fun, meal plans, and take charge of the things I want to get done.  I can get back to my normal exercise routine, plan out my editorial calendar, and find that little extra time for me.

Today it’s my desk.  I organized our school calendar, planned out my daughter’s school Annual Fund Campaign, got the school Art Docent program underway,( yes, I volunteer too!…this is another post in itself), and got everything ready to move forward into Fall and Winter.

Here are my 3 favorite desk top items that help me keep my desk in tip top shape:

  2. WALLNITURE Flat Panel Monitor Riser Stand Space Saving Workstation and Multi-Purpose Organizer: $39.99 Amazon
