Does anyone have any tips for keeping my computer desk organized? It's not so bad right now because I just cleaned it, but after a day or two I always seem to pile paper, pens, and other office-y things.

My desk is never that tidy after all and it always takes some effort to arrange things here and there. I hate the look but sometimes am so lazy to keep the right things in place.

Haha, I'm the same as everyone else-- my desk is always way crowded with mugs, paper, computer accessories, etc. I normally just sweep everything off every other month or so, and start over fresh.

I don't know how my desk gets so messy. It is weird because the guy I share an office with has the neatest desk. I know my side of the office must drive him crazy.

I actually have a system to organize thing son my desk! Well, sort of. I've got a couple baskets that I sort papers into, and I keep my office supplies in various drawers. It's mostly clean.

I have a filing cabinet right next to my desk, which theoretically keeps important papers from overrunning my desk (yeah, right). I have containers for writing instruments, shoe-boxes for miscellaneous, and shelves for books. Still, it's untidy. I think it something about being "relax" space... it's hard to "work" there!

My desk has a ton of crap on it right now. Normally I just wait until stuff starts falling off/keeps me from typing/etc. and then I clean it off.

I always get my desk organized in the evening but then by morning, the cycle goes on; get it untidy during the day and get it organized as you go to sleep.

Tips are really welcome.

In a paperless office, the untidiness is much harder to spot!

I have a pile of about 6 bits of paper that are pending.. mainly bills or things that cannot be auctioned yet for some reason. All paper is either filed, shredded or recycled immediately after being dealt with so there is never much of a build up.

However I always archive email, never delete. I've never bothered with email categories as searching+starring is normally enough to make anything I need to find findable.
