Recently, in a cleaning frenzy, I took some time to assess my home office workspace. The tools that I use on a daily basis, all so dear and familiar to me, did not pass my assessment. Truth be told, they were tattered and worn out. My printer-fax-scanner combo continued to miss the third page of every document as it had for years, my chair had a broken wheel, and my headset wires were exposed. How is it that I use these tools daily, yet I pay no attention to their condition? As a bit of a penny-pincher, I will admit that I tend to look past wear and tear until it breaks. My husband is the ‘preventive maintenance’ guy while I tend to be the ‘use it to death’ gal. Not only was my workspace in dire need of an overhaul, some items needed to go for the sake of sanitation…I’ll spare you the gross details. No pun intended.
