Desk Organization: Why Is Your Desk Way Too Organized?

How To March 22, 2018
Is your stapler on your desk to the left, or to the right? What about your scissors? Why do you organize your highlighters, pens, and pencils in 3 separate areas? What does your method of desk organization say about you?
Researchers continue to delve into the psychology of where we decide to place items on our desk. Shudder to think if an item is borrowed and not returned to its designated place! How can we better understand why we arrange items in a certain manner in the office and how your work-personality might relate to this?
Ask yourself if any of the following four examples have their own important resting spots in your office. If not, don’t worry! We have what your essential arrangement is missing.

Firstly, First Aid!

Sometimes, people don’t know where to put that pesky, but often mandatory, first aid kit. Sandwiched in the bottom drawer, tucked behind the desk, out of sight in the cabinet, or maybe depending on the day that you’re having–right on top of your desk? Question: How can 140 first aid items fit snugly in a compact area the size of the corner of your desk? The answer? Very carefully, thanks to this resourceful and compact First Aid Kit! Remember, one should update their First Aid items periodically.

Some Just Don’t Know Where to Keep Their Batteries

Once you open up a new pack of batteries, often times the extras are loose and roll around. If you’re like me, it disrupts my desk organization. Many people use the top drawer of their desk for just to keep spare batteries at hand. Do you set your extra batteries in the tray, or are they clanking around every time you open it?

Cold, So Cold

Do your officemates battle over the thermostat? Space heaters are great, but it’s tough to remember to turn them off at the end of the day. (Don’t worry; it happens to the best of us!) Enter our favorite solution: a heating pad! Fortunately, heating pads are easy to store, and you’ll take comfort in its multiple heat settings. Plus, it’s machine-washable and comes with an extra-long extension cord. Perfect for anyone suffering from muscle aches or a frigid office climate!

Head Home After Your Day! Don’t Head-Ache.

How does that bottle of aspirin for your headache magically keep jumping around from place to place? Suddenly, it doesn’t have that shaky sound anymore. Looks like you might be ready to replenish your supply (and that of your officemate, whose desk everyone knows to visit in a pinch!). Refocus, relieve those throbbing aches, and make it home in good health.

Breathe in, and breathe out, as nothing will be out of place at your desk anymore!
