I am FINALLY getting the chance to share my new (and amazing) Elfa office dresser with y’all. I ordered it back before Christmas and received it around the first of January. My sister was gracious enough to pick it up for me at The Container Store near her home. It saved me a ton of money on shipping.
It has taken me this long to get it organized and ready to share. Organization takes times! Sometimes you have to try a few methods out before one works and sticks.
I have wanted one of these systems ever since I saw them three years ago. But, they are expensive and I couldn’t validate the purchase in my head. Well, some things lined up and this chick was able to purchase not one, but TWO! I am sharing one of them today and the other in a later post.
Why did I decide to purchase these awesome organizational systems now?
Some people want nice jewelry or fancy furniture when they meet an educational goal. This lady wanted organizational units! I received my Master’s degree in December, so it was my present to myself. Plus, they were 30% off (Elfa has a big sale once a year), my sister picked them up for me (no shipping), and we overpaid at a doctor’s office last year. An overpayment meant we got a little check back in the mail. Everything lined up nice, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
Now, to the point of this post…
How am I using the Elfa dresser?!?!
Remember a couple of months ago, I did a Friday Inspiration post on printer storage? Well, my printer found a home on top of the Elfa system. It is nestled in between our two bookcases and out of the way.
I guess you could call this my “craft dresser.” Most of the drawers are full of crafting goodies.
Side note: I am still new to the crafting world, so my collection isn’t very big at the moment.
My “craft dresser” has five drawers and are labeled as follows:
- Top drawer – crafts
- Second drawer – storage
- Third drawer – paper
- Fourth drawer – Cricut supplies
- Bottom drawer – Fabric
I plan on changing the labels to something cuter and aligned better. But, at the moment, these will do.
Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase. I am finding the extra storage very helpful in my office.
