3. Get Your Desktop Organized
Keep only supplies and gadgets you need on a daily basis on your desktop. Patty Kreamer, a professional organizer, says to think of it like your circles of friends. "Items you use most should be within reach – your friends.The items you use less often should be near, but you should have to get up to access them -- your acquaintances. The items you rarely useshould be out of your office altogether -- strangers," Kreamer says.
