7 Cheap and Simple Desk Hacks That'll Actually Motivate You to Get Organized

Did you know that your desk says a lot about what kind of person you are? So if you’re a pretty messy person, your current workspace may not be the best reflection of your job performance. Scary, huh?

Do not stress, I have good news for you. Remember how last week I gave you food hacks? Well, this week I thought it would be nice to give you some just-as-useful organizational hacks. This time around, they—you guessed it—involve your desk.

You know the drill: These hacks will cost you almost no time or money. In fact, most of these tips will require nothing but what’s already on your desk—sticky notes, binder clips, rubber bands, a cereal box, and possibly an old cassette container. (I don’t know—maybe ask your parents for that last one?)
