DIY Sunday: Keeping a Clean Desk

organized desk

A workspace should be clear, clean, and under control –whether at home or at the office. With all the things on our to do lists,  it may be the last thing on our mind but getting organized is the first step to tackling the rest. And you know what’s always a mess? No, not the desk surface itself. The fact that it’s probably buried beneath books and paperwork is a whole different story. I’m talking about organizing trays and pen/pencil holders. Somehow, they always end up stuffed with a lot more than they should be. Hair ties, chocolate,  and candy from LAST year’s Halloween? Please clear that out before Willy Wonka seeks revenge.

The secret is to keep things in clear containers, that way you’ll have to keep it neat. Choose pretty glass jars in different shapes for added interest. Scroll below to learn how!

Before

What you’ll need:

1 old jar (jam, pasta sauce, if it’s pretty it works)

1 candy jar or elongated glass

1 pack of pencils

white erasers

Instructions:

It’s really as simple as choosing which jar is for erasers, and which is for pencils& pens! Once that decision is out of the way, fill them up and watch your desk become the fairest of them all.

Style is served!
