Desk Organization Tips

Desktop organization tips

  • To keep your office desktop as organized as possible, only keep absolutely essential items on the desktop itself.
  • Limit the office supplies on your desk to the ones you use every day. Keep everything else in a drawer or cupboard.
  • Position your computer screen at eye-level and an arm’s length away from your body.
  • Keep your phone on your dominant side to avoid reaching across your body to answer calls.
  • Tidy up before you leave for the day – this will prevent desktop clutter building up over time.

Desk drawer organization tips

  • Desk drawers harbor unwanted clutter so take everything out and get rid of anything you don’t need or don’t use.
  • Use desk drawer dividers to create compartments for different items.
  • Wrap up any loose cables with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Reusable Ties – this way, your cables will take up much less space and be much easier to find when you need them.
  • Organize your office desk drawers by the items you use most to least. Keep the items that you use most often (pens, staplers, paperclips, etc) at the front, near to your dominant hand.
