Reading at the park

Such a beautiful Autumn day. Walked Alby to the local park, sat in the glorious sun and enjoyed a book. Finding pleasure in the moment and cherishing the simple pleasures. #simplepleasure

For under $50, as you can see in the photo above, I’ve got my little cute apple that dispenses my post-it notes, and is really helpful when I’m in a rush and need to quickly jot something down. Also my file stand, easily divides my documents and keeps them tidy and clutter free.


For under $100, I’ve added to my my under $50 items to get more organised. I’ve organised my paperwork including bills, warranties, work contracts, tax info and other important documents, in a huge ring folder. In the pink drawers, I’ve placed receipts. Keeping receipts is a must,  so this is an easy way to store them.

Within this budget I was also able to get some stationery. Highlighters, notepads and adhesive notes. I can be a kid sometimes! I bought some of those scented texters. Yum. Strawberry! Makes the filling in of paperwork a treat rather than a chore!


For under $200, including most of the items above, I was able to also purchase a beautiful wooden filing cabinet. I have been looking for an affordable-and nice looking cabinet for so long. I looked everywhere and finally found it. Isn’t it beautiful? I am going to be so super organised, just like I am at work! Yes!!! The top drawers will have all my crafts, like letter stationery, stamps, wrapping paper, ribbons and just miscellaneous, beautiful stationery – I’m obsessed. And the bottom drawer will have all my files.

So excited to be organised at home!

Here are the links of some of the items I purchased from Officeworks.

So far this book has helped me clear out and declutter my wardrobe, my gorgeous bookshelf and kitchen pantry. Next is the bedroom!

If you’re asking yourself, “How do I declutter my home?”, this book is for you.

The big question I ask myself now after reading this fabulous book is,

“Does this item bring me joy?”
