How to Organize the Desk Drawers in Your Home Office

If you look through the drawers in your desk, you may find a junk drawer or two. These are probably filled with things you didn’t know where to store, so you threw them into a drawer to deal with them later. Now is the time to sort through these items and separate the useful from the useless. The following steps will take you through this process quickly:

1. Go through one drawer at a time and take out any items you haven’t used in the last year. These don’t belong in your immediate work area. Try to make the decision right away either to throw an item out, give it away, or store it where you can find it when you need it. Because space is probably limited, you may have to be ruthless.

2. Get rid of anything that doesn’t work, including dead pens or battery-operated items that have no batteries.

3. Get a box for items you can’t bear to part with. Label this box Hold. If you still haven’t used the things in this box after six months, get rid of them.

4. Place all of the remaining items that you use often in a pile.

5. Measure a desk drawer to use as a place to put small things you use every day, such as pens, pencils, correction fluid, tape, scissors, and so on. (A lap drawer is best for this.) Then get dividers to fit this drawer. They will keep your supplies from rolling around every time the drawer is opened. You could also use a silverware tray or an office product designed specifically for this purpose.
