A workspace attracts paper, supplies and clutter. Get yours under control with some smart organising ideas for a calm and orderly study. Despite the best of intentions, it’s easy for paperwork to take over. Bits of research, last week’s reports, next week’s to do list - before you know it there’s no room left on your desk to work. Make good use of the wall by putting shelves or wall pockets up. You can keep lots of things within arm’s reach without getting in your way.
Desk tidies, in and out trays and cable management all go towards keeping your workspace cleverly clear of clutter. Small boxes, stationery trays and dividers do the job inside drawers.
Sort, file and shelve
No office is complete without a set of shelves. Complement yours with some files, magazine archive boxes and smaller storage boxes to help keep everything in its place and out of sight until you need it. Stickers or homemade labels look smart and help you keep a tab on contents.
