Tips to Keep Your Desk Organized

May 9, 2020

With many of us working from our Columbus GA homes, it’s more important than ever to keep our desks organized. When everything has a place, we save time and get more work done. Perhaps more importantly, an organized desk helps us stay calm when life gets hectic.

Here are some ideas to keep your desk neat and orderly so you can get your work done on time:

  1. Toss out those old pens that barely make a mark on the page. Shred or recycle any papers you no longer need, and file the ones you should keep. If you have multiples of a durable item like staplers, keep the best one and donate the rest.
  2. After your desk is decluttered, group like items together. Determine the best way to store them. You might want to store pens and pencils in a shallow box in a drawer, or you may prefer to stand them in a container on the desk. Choose the method that works best for you. Just be sure to limit the number of items on the desk surface. You can never have too much clear work space!
  3. Purchase storage containers and organizers or repurpose household items such as small boxes or unused mugs. A cereal box cut at an angle and covered with contact paper makes a great holder for magazines or notebooks. Use a bookcase or a rolling organizer with drawers to store overflow items within easy reach.
  4. Add shelves above or beside the desk to hold books, stacks of paper or attractive storage containers. Don’t forget to add a few decorative items like plants or photos to personalize the space.
  5. Install a bulletin board or dry erase board on the wall where you can easily see it when seated at your desk. Use it to plan your work, post motivational quotes or jot down reminders.
