I love the idea of the blue lounge cable box, but I can't justify or afford to pay 25-30 bucks for one when I would need 4! That's over $100 to hide power strips in 4 separate locations in my apt! Anyone have a cheaper DIY solution for me?
Day 15: Exercise a Little Cord Control Apartment Therapy January Cure
|1/25/13 10:11 AM|
I had just bought a new mattress, and was buying sheets for it and looking for a bedspread of sorts. Now, you have to understand that I HATE bedspreads. I can't tell you why, I just do. My bedroom was black and red, I loved it, it made me happy. My previous bed cover was just a black (or red) reversible comforter. It may not look fancy, but it looked nice, put together and with my 2 cats, easily cleaned. On to the regrettable purchase... I just about drove my girlfriend crazy going around searching for the perfect bedspread... She was pushing me toward something nice, pricey, and grownup. (i was in my late 20s). After much shopping, stress and arguments, I let her talk me into getting a vira Wang from khols, that's purple and grey. I like it just fine, I just wish I had kept looking for something that went w my decor. To top it all off, it's dry clean only. I have 3 cats. Never again.

Day 8: Weekend Chores - Flowers, Kitchen Cleaning & Make Yourself a Meal Apartment Therapy January Cure

So I'm new to apt therapy, and boy do I need the therapy! In addition to making a cleaning routine that is more 12-hr work days friendlier than my previous one, I've been making my list and have a lot of projects on there already... But I think the one that I'm going to focus on first is the black hole monstrosity that is my "home office". I use quotes bc I live in a one bedroom apartment and my "office" is actually a corner of my bedroom. When u see the pic you'll see how it can be an eye sore and not very umm... Sexy bedroom-like. I have files from past years stored in other corners of the bedroom, a pile of papers to be filed, shredded, scanned, old books and pprs from college and old jobs, you name it! The goal is to scan everything into my computer and store it on the external hard drive, shred anything that can be tossed, therefore eliminating all paper files except for the ones for this current year. Ultimately, I'd like to get a new desk, or at least make my current one more eye-friendly. It's going to be a LOT of work! Wish me luck!
