If you have a lot of items in your desk area but are unsure how to organize them efficiently, cost-effectively or aesthetically, we’ve got some easy DIY tips for you:
1. Assemble shoeboxes on your desk to store light books and papers. Cover the boxes with shelf lining or wrapping paper for decoration.
2. Look for old jam jars or mason jars to put office supplies in, such as paper clips, pens and pencils.
3. Attach binder clips to your desk to hold USB cords and other cables. Thread the cords through the metal part of the clip to avoid cord tangling.
