My "extra" supplies basket:
I was able to pare down my desk considerably, which is nice. I managed to fit all of my extra supplies into a little basket that I stash under my desk. I feel more organized, which makes me want to sit down and do some work at my desk! I am very happy with the results.
I donated a few items, including a tape dispenser and some storage baskets. I recycled some paper and shredded some documents. I feel better. I know that this project was more an organization project than a minimalism project, but I am giving myself a pass because I did donate some items and I did pare down.
