Get Rid of Unnecessary Items

Throw every unnecessary item from your desk such as crumpled pieces of paper, dried up pens, and any leftover snacks. Grab two bags: one for the items you’ll get rid of, and the other for the things you still need. Think about it really hard. We know you love hoarding pens, but do you really need the other non-working ones too?

Be as stern as possible. Throw as many unimportant items as you can and keep only the bare necessities. Take our word for it when we say it can bring you your much-needed peace of mind.

Once you’re done getting rid of the garbage, why don’t you use storage items and place them at your desk to avoid bigger clutter in the future?
