I’m not sure what it is about a well organised space that makes me so happy. Something about seeing things in order, labelled and filed away neatly makes me feel at peace.

If you are anything like me, you know you like being organised and you want to be… but sometimes, you let the mess get out of control (through busy weeks, out of control kids and spouses or moving house) and then you have no idea how to get back that inner peace.

Last month I visited OC’s Kitchen in Manila and I was blown away by the extent of organisation by my host Anna. Seriously just look at this… Everything had it’s place and was labeled. I suspect nothing ever gets lost here.

I suspect there are lots of people like Anna out there keeping them in business. And I admit after seeing this, I had the strongest urge to run out to my nearest store to start buying containers too.

So I decided to put it out there… I was curious… what does everyone’s work space look like? Are they like mine where I get into moods to be organised and then weeks later it’s all a big mess again? I asked on Facebook and people started submitting photos of their work space…

    Me encanta!!!! ains el problema que cuando tienes un obrador pequeño y mil cosas para guardar y ordenar, por muchas cajas que tengas te falta sitio para todo.
    Ahora estaría bien un paso a paso o ideas de como organizarlo.
