Makeover Monday: From an Empty Corner Into an Attack on Techno-Sprawl

The Newly-Empty Corner of the Nursery

Success! As I’d hoped in last week’s Makeover Monday, I got the bookcase in the baby’s room entirely emptied and moved down to the garage.

(If you’re new here, Makeover Monday is the brainchild of this minx.)

(If you’re wondering why I called Mood Swinging Mommy a “minx,” it’s ’cause I called her a “chick” last week and she was flattered. I’m just pushing the envelope. At least I didn’t mention stirrups.)

(And yeah, my last Makeover Monday post was actually… on a Monday. I’ve noticed that the later in the week my MM post comes, the more likely I am to have successfully completed it.)

Goal complete, here’s my new one for this Makeover “Monday”:

I will condense all the computers, routers, printers, and other assorted technical crap to the one tall cabinet in the office. Death to techno-sprawl!

It’s not like I’ve got a technology fetish (like some guys I could mention), but for some reason, the computers and cables and cradles (oh my!) seem to burst forth from every effort to contain them. So that’s the goal: a tidy office!

Go wireless! It’s worked wonders for my desk. Need to buy more shares in duracell though – between the keyboard and the mouse, and the proliferation of battery requiring kids toys around here – I think I deserve a return on my lithium investment!

Sadly, I already am wireless, but some things — oh, the printers, say, and the monitors (yes, plural) don’t lend themselves to that.

I like the logitech wireless, because it recharges on its dock — I try to avoid batteries because they feel so toxic… no actual knowledge behind that statement, just a bias.

Well done on the empty corner, Dd! I shall ignore the fact that you didn’t post until Thurs. if you overlook that I didn’t comment until Friday.

I can relate so well to your goal this week, and am anxiously awaiting your results. We are tangled in cords over here and would love to know if you find a system that works.

(This minx thanks you for not elaborating on the stirrups. ;))
