This IKEA Organization Hack Is The Key To Keeping Your Desk Completely Clutter Free


A new year makes for the ideal time to start reorganizing spaces in your home that need a little TLC. If the hustle and bustle of the holidays — or, let's be real, the last couple of months — has made your desk become less of a work space and more of a cluttered catch-all, now is the moment to get it back into tip-top shape. Now, before you start seeing dollar signs, you don't have to break the bank to achieve order in your home office. For $20 or less, you can get the job done with the help of inexpensive IKEA desk organizers that are now available from the retailer.

Papers piled high, strewn pens, and scattered notes can make your desk far from the productive work zone it needs to be. Leave it to IKEA to be the one-stop-shop to aid you in decluttering your desk while keeping your cart budget-friendly. With just a few low-cost purchases, you'll be able to spend more time on your work and less time searching for a phone number you scribbled down.

If your desk does have a drawer, the first item you need to pick up is this $7 desk insert to keep all your essentials in one place. And, for shoppers with no drawers to tuck away smaller items, keep your space tidy by grabbing an organizer that'll sit atop your desk. Those with smaller desk dimensions should look at the compact YPPERLIG Stationery Set for $9.99; the stackable set contains one pen cup, a tape dispenser, and two small containers.

As for those files that end up piling up on your desk? Scoop up a couple of filing containers; this white set will only set you back $12.99. If the area of work space on your desk is limited, you may want to think about utilizing the wall space nearby. Store your important papers within an arms reach in a wall magazine rack, $14.99, and jot down important numbers on this glass notice board, $19.99.


And while there are plenty of options that are more traditional desk organizers available on the site, IKEA is also known for being a treasure trove of products that can be used in a multitude of ways. Case in point: The RAJTAN Spice Jars for $2.79. Though typically thought of for the kitchen, the set of four glass jars with aluminum tops will sit nicely on your desk and can be filled with smaller office must-have like thumb tacks, paperclips, and rubber bands.
