Make Your Desk More Practical

Create a mobile charging station

Stop your cellphone from cluttering up your desk. Make your own charging station from a block of wood or buy one that is ready to use.

Use a color coding system

Find what you need quickly by color coding your documents. Add colored strips of paper or plastic and take a note of the scheme’s key.

Hide your electrical cords

Don’t let messy electrical cords make your desk difficult to use. There are many ties and tethers that you can easily make to resolve this.

Clearly label the drawers

Make it easy to organize your papers and supplies by marking each drawer. This will encourage you to store things in their proper place.

Use folders for easy storage

Avoid big piles of paper by using folders to store everything away neatly and conveniently. You can color code these, too.
