My mother thoughtfully sent over some photos of my father's office at home. I think she just wants to reiterate that she is not a clutterer and she does not like clutter. She says she has seen it worse and I have to say, I don't think it looks bad at all.
This is clearly where I learned "couch as storage".
I see an awful lot of desk through those papers, so again, not bad. It might be time to upgrade the monitor however. It is taking a lot of valuable paper space.
