I can so very much relate to this topic, Usamacka.
My husband made me a space in our home office, where we each have a computer, each a nine-foot high bookshelf, and one filing cabinet.
He removed a closet, then we went to IKEA and bought me two drawer units (each with 5 drawers); 9 deep shelves, 6 shallow shelves, and some fabric boxes to store things inside.
I have been working at organizing my STUFF for over a month on all this....and seem to be making more and more messes. I suppose it's getting sorted, slooooowly.....but: I'm beginning to think that I don't have a sortacious bone in my body. I am beginning to think that I like making messes and sitting in the middle of them, looking as if I'm sorting......
