If You’re Not Going To Clean Your House This Spring, At Least Organize Your Work Stuff
March 30, 2009
We have an idea that’s better than spring cleaning (and, ahem, don’t you vacuum every week anyway?): Spring stop searching through piles of papers and get your work crap organized.
Today on Better.tv, we’ve pulled together a bunch of products to make it a little easier.
Organize Your Time
Two organization essentials: a great daily planner and a place to write down all those tasks that cross your mind. Galison’s planner ($17) is reasonably priced and totally convenient, with lots of sticky notes to stick on important events or report pages. While you’re working, organize your thoughts and tasks with a Time Tamer pad ($6).
Organize Your Desk
Free up some space with a Memo Mousepad ($9.50) – it’s a pad and a mouse pad in one. Then, keep piles from taking over your space by hanging up papers on IKEA’s magnetic strip (99 cents) and standing important files upright between Dynomighty’s Desk Dots ($15).
Organize Your Tech
Re-gain the upper hand on your tech toys with a cord winder ($5) and a few wire clips ($4 for 3): the frog (cord winder) will keep cables tucked neatly in its mouth, and the cats (suction-cupped wire clips) can hang on the wall and keep a bunch of wires off your desk. Finally, charge your mobile device in a Socket Pocket ($10) and you won’t knock it onto the floor and crack the screen.
