Organize Paper Clutter
Personally, I suffer from creating piles of paperwork. I like to make stacks of things to do later and before I know it, the stacks have grown and multiplied. Can you relate?
To counter the massive paper inflow I’ve moved some of my files to my desktop so that I can organize the papers right when I get them. Also, they are on my desk so I see them and avoid forgetting about important tasks.
Unfortunately, a lot of desk filing systems are frankly really ugly. Luckily there are some cute organization ideas you can use to make your desk file organizer look pretty on your desk.

Keep your desk file organizer looking cute by using color! Decide on a color scheme and make sure that all of the folders you use to store your papers work within that color palette. You can do a rainbow theme, work with two different colors, or choose one color and use different patterns.
Color Code Your Home Office
While we are on the subject of color, try organizing your entire office on a color scheme.
Consider color coordinating your books and binders to create a customized mood in your office. If your books don’t cooperate (mine certainly don’t) you could cover the spines with colorful contact paper or washi tape.

Try an L Desk
Consider using a L-shaped desk. It gives you twice the work space while not taking up a ton of extra space. You don’t have to buy a ready-made L-shaped desk. Instead, put two together at an angle, you could even use desks with mismatched heights and nestle one under the other.

Move Your Office Furniture
Your desk doesn’t have to live against a wall. Move it to the center of the room and use it as a focal point. It will free up wall space for more shelving.
