Tools for a Clean Desk

Working effectively is impossible when you don’t have what you need, and your space is a mess. According to this great study from the Harvard Business Review, “People sitting at messy desks are less efficient, less persistent, and more frustrated and weary than those with neat desks.”  While you can’t expect everything in your office to “spark joy,” you can find other ways of creating a neat, productive environment at work.

“A place for everything, and everything in its place” is a great strategy for helping you get and stay organized. Having the right tools for the job is necessary to help you execute that organization. Take a look at these great products to help in your quest to make your workspace work for you!
