Having a desk in order is not an impossible mission. It is all about availing ourselves of the usefulness of certain objects, knowing how to place things and dare to be as practical as we can.
And it is that, for many, it is very stressful to have the work space in disarray, not find things and accumulate one thing over another, without knowing where they will end up. As a consequence, this generates discomfort and lack of encouragement when sitting at the desk. To the naked eye, what can be seen is a cluster of objects within which, we can not find what we really need.
To save this vision every day, all we have to do is face that chaos, separate the objects, according to the classification that best suits us, and then place them in containers strategically placed to preserve order.
Crafts to keep your desk in order
1. With milk powder cans
To take advantage of powdered milk cans, we can decorate them on the outside with a little paper, to our liking and have them to place our pencils, colors, pens and other If you want to optimize the result, use more than 3 cans and place different objects inside each one. In this way, you will visualize better what you have and what you do not.
To keep your desk in order, you can place the cans in their usual position or make a small pyramid. On the other hand, you can also take advantage of the wall and place them “on the air”, to get a more open work surface.
