You’ve heard about “dressing for success”? Well, just like how feeling good about how you look makes you feel confident, having an organised desk will certainly improve your experience of working from home as you practice social distancing.


Essentials only

Everyone uses their desk in a different way, but most of us have the main work tool, like a computer or sketch pad. Take everything off your desk, wipe it down and put back only the essentials, like your monitor or laptop, and your phone.


Record or recycle

One of the biggest threats to a tidy workspace is the pile of papers that you bump your mouse against every day. Sort through all your papers, and decide which scraps to recycle and which to file. Want a tip? Scan a clipping or take a photo of it with your phone and store it on your computer instead of filing it away someplace where you’ll probably never find it again.


Amp up your storage

Prioritise your desk drawers. Put things you use every day in the top drawer, and work your way down. If you use regular office tools – such as a stapler, paper clips and scissors – then a drawer organiser is a must-have. If your desk doesn’t have drawers, then look for a basket caddy on wheels that can sit next to your desk. Store items you use once or twice a month in plastic storage containers, which you can keep out of the way or in a cupboard.
