    Adam, Adam, Adam…. My desk can be that clean one day and a week later look like your 3 year old mess. I never find cool stuff on my desk though. I, to this day, don’t understand how I can keep an immaculate house and my desk looks like an atom bomb went off!

      I’m going to make a serious effort to keep it clean this time. I like having a clean workspace.

        I tell myself that every time…. it lasts about a week. I did a panoramic of my computer room last week… from Gary’s nice and neat side to my pile o garbage. Hilarious!

    Your desk is apparently like my Louis Vuitton box. But why would you keep that old stuff on your desk?

      Well, it was in my desk – in the drawers and I cleaned those out too.

    Aww! This is sweet, mostly sweet… some bittersweet too. Kudos to cleaning your desk. Thankfully my desk is in storage. I hate dealing with mail too, and being the product of two incredible HOARDERS (you heard it here first, folks) – I can have some pack-rat tendencies. I save old notes, and love finding them… especially the OBMS and SCHS intricately-folded kind. Those are the best.

    I put up a corkboard on my desk (back when it wasn’t living in a storage unit) and that totes helped. Maybe keep one nearby. Or get one of those laundry bin sorters to act as a mammoth filing system?

    Good luck keeping it tidy! And don’t let those walls get too big, now.

    You need a wireless keyboard and mouse! Oh wait…you don’t like Macs. Do such products even exist in the PC world?

    The trip down memory lane sounds like it was (mostly) a good thing… always tears mixed in with the laughter when you take a journey like that one. But a great thing? Is that pack of Orange Creamsicle gum I spied in the “before” pic. Not such a big fan of the Mint Chocolate Chip in the “after” pic, though. The Orange Creamsicle ties for best with Rainbow Sherbert – if you haven’t tried that one, you have to!!! I’d skip the Apple Pie flavor if I were you, though.
