Get a bunch of storage bins of different sizes and use them to divide the space inside a large drawer. Put your tape in one bin, the paper clips in another, sticky notes in another and so on. The drawer will be beautifully organized and it’s a lot easier to find the thing you need this way.{found on iheartplanners}.

Use trays of different sizes.

A similar idea is to use trays. You can find them in all shapes and sizes. Combine them like in a puzzle and organize all the little items in your office drawers. You could also just as well use cardboard boxes but they’d have to be the same size.

Keep all the papers in one place.

Papers and documents contribute the most to the clutter inside your desk drawers. Keep them all nice and organized either in a large envelop, in a folder or dedicate a separate drawer to them.

Only use the drawers for frequently used items.

Try to only store the items you frequently use in the drawers. If you combine them with items you rarely use then it will all become a mess. Drawers are easily accessible so they are perfect for storing things like pens, paper clips, markers, etc.

Each drawer with a different function.

Try to designate a function for each drawer of your desk. For example, the top drawer can be for scissors, tape, paper clips, pens and other similar items, the one below can be for notebooks, papers, etc. and another for toiletries such as tissues, band aids and other things.{found on modishandmain}.
