I love having a huge desk to spread all my things out on while I’m working.
Yeah, I’m a minimalist… but I am also one of those people that need to see everything in front of her.
It’s nice to say that you want to be a minimalist, and get rid of as much as possible, but it cannot be to the detriment of your lifestyle or what you find practical.
For me, a huge open desk facing a window is a lot less sexier than a tiny little space like this:
I have too many papers, and I hate having shelves above my head.
I need open space, a huge honking desk and the ability to take up half the room around me if I need to.
That is the fight I have with myself internally sometimes: Should I ALWAYS put away everything when I use it constantly?
Or leave it out, even though it’s a bit of a mess? (I’m clearly a nester.)
In the end, my solution is to leave some of my everyday items out, in little boxes so the items are contained but easily accessed.
Something like this would be ideal for me, but not if I have shelves to look at above me.
