There's no room in the house for me to have an actual desk where I can pay bills, organize papers and do all other desk-related household work. For a while, the kitchen counter worked for me. I kept it pretty organized, even though it did have a tendency to become a catch-all. Still, I'd sort through everything regularly.
Another section of our counter was being used by non-food related activities as we acquired more gadgets. The charging station had taken over counter space and was expanding now that we've committed to using rechargeable batteries. Two cell phones, two Nintendo DSs, two battery chargers and one Nook take up a lot of counter space. And, I was okay with that for a bit.
Then, something changed.
I wanted my counters back!
They're prime kitchen real estate, after all.
