5 Office Organization Tips

 The state of your bed is the state of your head, as the saying goes. I say that the state of your office is in direct proportion to the number of anti-anxiety, anti-losing-it, anti-please-don't-let-them-file-a-restraining-order pills you must pound a day. Here are few mind-saving tips for keeping your office, desk, or GSD (get sh*t done) corner of the room neat:

1. Hang a bath towel rod above your desk. Adorn it with pretty hooks to hold must-grab items.

2. Super glue clothespins to a piece of reclaimed wood to make a cool DIY memo station. This example is an advent calendar, of course, but it would look great re-made into office decor slash organization piece. 

3. Install hooks in the wall; Hang large metal paper clips (they would look even better in bright colors) to display an inspiration board, photos, or important notes.

4. Create a clipboard gallery as wall art/inspiration board/to do list. Again, the clipboards would look amazing painted in bright colors, and the possibilities for use are endless. For parents, this is also a genius (and organized!) way to display the monsoon of artwork that comes home from preschool.

5. Display pant hangers. (Genius!) Get out a can of spray paint and make those pant hangers look spiffy. Spray, hang, clip...instant organization.
