Shuffle around your desk drawers no more! Use dividers in your drawer to keep things perfectly organized. This is super simple to do with gift boxes. Just make sure they’re a little lower than the height of your drawer. Using colored boxes like this turquoise adds a nice touch. Choose boxes in multiple sizes so you can accommodate different shaped items.
8. Space Saving Wall Mounted Filing System
Have you ever had an, “out of sight, out of mind,” moment with a file that you stored away deep in a filing cabinet? Bring those files out into the light with a wall-mounted filing system. It’ll free up the space that you’d use for a filing cabinet and put all your files conveniently at eye level above your desk. Use a consistent color scheme to keep it attractive.
9. Hanging Files and Heavy Duty Plastic Storage
No filing cabinet? No problem! You can have a fantasying filing system with just some hanging folders and a plastic tub. Use plastic tabs to label your system so you can easily find what you’re looking for. Filing cabinets can be heavy and unattractive. Using this system, you’ll have ready access to your files, you can move them if you need to, and you can store them away discreetly.
10. Clearly Organized with Transparent Plastic Pockets
Sometimes you just need to be able to see where everything is. Storing the little things like sticky tabs, paper clips, and pencils in clear pouches makes it easy to find what you’re looking for at a glance. Just group like items together and you’ll find what you need in no time at all.
11. Nested Home Office Organization for Your Nest
There’s a place for everything and everything is in its place with this nested home office organization idea. The corner desk maximizes space while the cubbies and side table tucked under the desk provide storage for files and equipment. Keeping it all monochromatic in white gives a fresh look and minimizes the appearance of the office furniture so it doesn’t take away from the rest of your home.
12. Vertical Home Office for Small Spaces
Even if you are short on space, you can still have a home office! Just think up instead of out. This vertical desk is only the width of a hutch, but the cubbies and backboard add much-needed shelving and storage. This is an especially simple solution if you have a laptop and don’t need much surface area for a desk.
13. Adorably Neat Desktop Tray and Cups
Sometimes too many storage containers for your odds and ends can start to look messy. This nifty tray is the perfect solution. By keeping the storage containers in the same design scheme (glass with seafoam green wrap) and neatly organized in the tray, everything looks pulled together.
14. Mason Jar Pyramid Desktop Organizer
Is there anything that mason jars can’t do? From the kitchen to the craft nook, these multitasking glass jars are here to save the day! They add that signature brand of farmhouse chic to the mix while neatly organizing your office supplies like pencils, pens and paper clips where you can easily see them.
