Desk Organization

Desk Organization

Hey everyone! I thought I would write a fun post this week about my how I organize my desk so that it’s functional and aesthetic 🙂

Storage Containers:

These are lifesavers—I have one storage container for all my school supplies and then another for miscellaneous items that I always need. The storage containers I use are actually makeup boxes, but I think it works perfectly for school supplies. These are perfect because they are functional, and they look great because they keep everything neat. I also have another separate storage box for my notepads, since I tend to use them a lot.

Plants:

I’m not the greatest at growing plants but I love adding plants to my desk because it makes the space feel more natural and livelier. I usually go for succulents since they are super easy to grow and don’t require a lot of maintenance. Plus, they look super cute with my workspace! I also like to add dry flowers to my workspace because I love the aesthetics of them 🙂

Random décor:

Since I like spreading my work out all over my desk, I try to keep my work area as minimal as possible, but I still like to add some fun décor. I bought this placemat recently and I found that it’s a great additional to my desk. I use it to place my notebooks or laptop on it, and I love that it adds a pop of colour to my desk.

Adding a candle is also a great way to add some personality to my workspace. I personally like outdoorsy scents because it helps me stay energized, but I switch up my candles depending on my mood!

I have a large wall clip frame that I use to pin stickers, loose notes, or reminders. It’s super useful and a great way to make sure I don’t lose any of my loose notes. If I have a test coming up, I’ll pin up some quick notes so that I can conveniently re-read them.

I hope you were able to find some inspiration on ways to decorate your own desk/workspace. Let me know any other ways that you decorate your desk in the comments 🙂
