The Simple 3 Step Plan to Revamp Your Desk
- De-clutter– remove all unnecessary items off the desk and move papers and files to a filing cabinet.
- Cable Management– get a cord/ cable keeper and use zip ties to organize the cables behind the desk.
- Add Inspiring Pieces– What’s inspiring to me, may not be inspiring to you. Find what makes you happy, you can often find these items in other areas of your house, like I did.
The desk is actually from IKEA, I purchased it four years ago and it has served me very well. I also worked for quite a while to manage the cords and cables behind the desk. As you can see from the before picture and the after picture it made such a huge difference. I always find ways to use zip ties in my home. While doing these little things for your desk isn’t a necessity for some, I find that having pretty uncluttered spaces helps with the clarity of my thoughts. If I have lots of clutter around me, I feel stressed out, until I fix it. Since I work from home it’s very important that I’m not stressed out by clutter, jumbled cords and other stuff on my desk.
