For some reason I cannot come up with a perfect solution for organizing my desk. It feels a little random. It is the kind of desk with a shelf thing (like this: http://www.staples.com/Z-Line-Gemini...C2:CG33:DP4543
) except mine isn't L-shaped so it's just that longer side with the shelf...anyway...
On my desk right now there is:
Starting on the left with the top shelf part--
a organizer/holder thing that has my checkbook, stamps, a few pens, and some bills sticking out the top, then my small 4X6 photo printer, then a cup (with a few broken pencils, a staple remover thing ,which i pretty much never use and a bag of tacks) next to that I have my label maker (which I do use), a tube of chapstick sitting on an empty earrings box with a secure digital card also on top of it. Next, two staplers ( i know i only need one but one is small and one is big lol), next to that is one of those plastic organizers that have three "shelves" adn inside there I have photopaper, regular paper, some plastic sheets you put in 3 ring binders to protect paper etc. (all stuff I use for my job), stacked next to that is one of my dh's cd cases and a bunch of random random random folders with such things as breastfeeding paperwork i got at the hospital two years ago when my son was born (lol i keep it to help share info with friends but it really doesn't need to live on my desk) and then finally next to that is my rechargable battery thing.
K now on the regular desk part: a surge protector type thing where I push the buttons to turn on my printer, computer etc...next to that is a broken digital camera that DH took apart to "fix" and never put it back together
, a three hole punch, two spindles of blank dvds and cds adn finally a big container of sharpies, pens and scissors.
So anyway, I dream of having one of those desks that are mostly empty...but what the heck to do with all the stuff???
As for where I keep other stuff...I do also have a filing cabinet which houses all the insurance papers, medical stuff, etc etc. and my printer lives on top of that.
What is on your desk right now?
