Working from home for the foreseeable future? I have four simple suggestions for keeping your desk organized to make working from home a little easier.

And while I’m always looking for new ways to stay motivated working from home, the thing that helps me most nine times out of ten is a clean, clutter-free workspace. That’s it!

Keeping things nice and organized on the top of your desk will give you the space you need to be productive. Especially if you’re a crafter / DIYer like me.

Clean up your desktop.

So, I like to start with a completely cleared off desk space. I take everything off my desk. EVERYTHING. Then spray the surface down really quick with a cleaner to catch any spills or dust.

Once your desktop is all cleared off,  it’s time to tackle any desk drawers or filing cabinet drawers you have. If you have drawers, use ’em! Desk organization is all about using what you’ve got.

Get your drawers in order.

There are tons of options for storing desk accessories and other office items. Whether you choose to store them directly on your desk or in a closet or shelf nearby.

Contain the Clutter.

BUT a completely empty desk doesn’t work for everyone, especially people who are short on storage space. Luckily, there are a whole lot of really good-looking desk organizer / storage solutions out there.

For a small office and desk space that lacks storage solutions, use the walls for extra storage space. This can look different in every space, and can be something very simple – like a peg rail organizer or DIY wall hooks.

Utilize Vertical Space
