Just prior to my recent surgery, I went through alot of paperwork, culled a lot, recycling a lot in the process. Still, many folders and some papers are left out. My make do system with a student sized desk simply isn't working. Add in that while the twins shared a room, neither could have a desk, due to space restrictions. Now that they have their own rooms, desks are welcomed. DS #3 got his desk but DD had taken DS#2's and doesn't want to give it up, due to storage. I will give my desk to DS and acquir an adult desk for myself. I looked on line and am shocked by asking prices for new desks. I insist on wood, no pressboard, dovetailed joints, at least one file drawer, no hutch/credenz and no computer sliding drawer as we all have laptops (use less energy than desktops). So, I posted my need, in search of, on multiple FB local tagsale sites and got several hits.

I'll be happy once I take ownership, move furniture around a bit, decluttering some more. Every Summer, I try to go through and declutter, bags are accumulating for a thrift donation, which is psychologically uplifting as "stuff" seems to weigh one down.
