Real Simple helped Kuae organize her materials into files, binders, and boxes that are now stowed in two new pieces of furniture—a desk and a bookcase. Work gear, such as the printer, is concealed behind the doors of the desk’s hutch. The bookcase stores magazines, photographs, and the kids’ papers and artwork. “Now that the room is so open and airy, we have meals there, even if it’s takeout, just to enjoy it,” says Kuae.
