Hey, hey! It’s Lee here, from Style Bee, and it’s time to talk desktops!
As someone who spends more than 8 hours a day at a desk (don’t worry I’m doing fun things!), or at least near one, I can attest to every imaginable state of disarray. Coffee cups stacked high, receipts, business cards and miscellaneous papers scattered everywhere, pens mysteriously disappearing, cords and chargers tangled, calendars open and too many items on the ‘to-do’ list to count.
Any of that sound familiar? Well then, it might be time for a little desktop detox. I’ve assembled my current favorite ways to stay organized and keep things in my office under control while still looking fresh and inviting, with these 10 cute desk accessories. Here goes!…
1 – Where the heck is the tape when I need it!? Certainly nowhere logical it seems. This fun dispenser is hard to misplace and so cute! Plus you only need one hand free to use it with it’s weighted base.
2 – I’m a chronic list maker and I burn through my ‘To Do’ pads but I’ve been loving this one from Rifle Paper Co. Anything to make the ominous tasks of the day a little more fun, right?
3 – Not that I really need a reminder about how fast time is flying but a chic marble wall clock makes a home office space feel more official and I love the graphic touch it adds.
4 – Copper wire everything please!! I love the look of these and the openness helps keep the desk or shelves from looking too boxed in.
5 – We’ve all experienced the phenomenon of the disappearing pen. It’s supper annoying but this sweet tipsy pen holder will put an end to it no doubt!
6 – There is nothing I love more on my desk than my phone and my succulents. So this little charger/planter contraption was basically made for girls like me!
7 – We are all VERY BUSY aren’t we? But I’m sick of hearing it and even more of saying it so I let these adorable file folders do the talking?
8 – An insane schedule is a little more bearable when it’s in a gorgeous planner right? Ps. Can you believe 2016 is already in sight? EEP!
9 – This lamp
10 – File holders are about the least original desk organization tool but that’s because they’re tried and true and work like a charm. A set of minty green metal ones will help you manage the paperwork without looking too old school.
Albert Einstein asked “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?” I dare say my answer would be, “That it’s ready for Instagram.”ha! ’Til next time!
