It is only normal to have a lot of things placed on our desk especially when we are working in an office space Philippines. Documents that need to be signed here and there are already piling up, sticky notes all around our computer monitors since we have a lot of schedules and things to be done, and that we need to be reminded, plus other important documents that are on the table that needs to be reviewed. Chaotic, isn’t it?

We all know that the things on your working desk are important, but it is not an excuse for you to have a messy and chaotic working place. Now, if you are already sick and tired working on your messy desk, you might want to try these brilliant ways to organize your workplace.

When you think that the empty spaces in your office can still be filled, you can make an improvised bookshelf. There you can put your notes, books, magazines, newspapers and other things that you want to put. Just make sure that it is not messy to look at.

Putting your things in the drawer can sometimes be messy especially when there is no object that can divide the things from the others. Why don’t you try improving your own divider? You can create a divider out from a cardboard or a folder. Cut it into small squares, glue it and put it in your drawer. Make sure to dry the glue first to avoid sticking your things in the cardboard or folder. Or simply use small boxes that can fit in the drawer and you can now put the things in order.
