Workspace of the Week: A makeshift space

This week’s Workspace of the Week is Stuart’s Emergency Workspace:

This is one of the most fun entries I have ever seen in the Unclutterer flickr pool, and it was calling out to be shared. When Stuart was moving to Arizona, he had to pack up all of his furniture and ship it across the country. Unfortunately for Stuart, he still had time left in his old place before he made the move. Out of necessity, he built a makeshift office to sustain him until he traveled to his new home. This emergency office is proof that you don’t need much to create an uncluttered office. Granted, nothing matches and it’s a little crazy — but WOW is it resourceful and simple! Thank you, Stuart, for sharing your emergency office with us.

Want to have your own workspace featured in Workspace of the Week? Submit a picture to the Unclutterer flickr pool. Check it out because we have a nice little community brewing there. Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.

    Where’s the duct tape and baling wire?

    When I lived in my pickup truck, my desk was a plastic waterproof storage bin. Held printer ,packs of paper and envelopes, laptop, and inverter. If I needed to print, the printer was plugged into the inverter and sat atop the seat back while I used the bin for a desk. Hurricane refugees, take note.

    That man really needs some tomato boxes. They’re tougher, have carrying handles, and hold files well. Get them at the produce stand or from the grocery produce manager on stock day. They also are the ideal boxes for moving anything except glassware or clothing–use banana boxes for your clothes.

    The best part is the desktop wallpaper! Very inventive work station.

    Very creative use of corrugated cardboard. Reminds me of a software implementation project I worked on in a former life, though our setup was not quite as luxurious as Stuart’s. 🙂

    This is great! I love how he labeled everything in the photo, especially the mac products! And yeah, I love the desktop background too!

    @Another Deb – Ha! Thanks. I would have used duct tape and wire if I had it. I could have used it to hold my busy life together. I was going through Master’s finals, working, and a 2 week old Father.

    @Christine – I agree with the wallpaper part.

    Kind of reminds me of that FedEx furniture guy.

    Pretty cool, though.
