No office? No problem!

So you don't have a dedicated space in your home for an office...you're not alone.  So often those spaces get taken over my the little humans we have created.  I used to have an office...now I have Scarlett.  Ha! But seriously...just because you don't have an office doesn't mean you don't have office stuff.  Printer paper, staplers, tape, file folders, extra checks, rubber bands, etc.  In my house I decided to dedicate a hall closet in my house to be my office supply ...continue reading
