Use Stationery Holders
Stationery holders are specifically designed to house stationery and make it easy to access. Stationery holders come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colours, and they have compartments for commonly used items such as pens, pencils, rulers and scissors. Having separate compartments means items can be kept in neat groups so you don’t have to search through a bunch of pens to find a pencil when you need one. Stationery holders are designed to be kept on top of desks so you can have immediate and easy access to any item you may need. With a range of sizes available, there’s sure to be a stationery holder to suit your needs.
You don’t have to purchase an item specifically designed to store stationery, as simple household jars can be great for storing certain items like pens, pencils and rulers. Another household item that can help you keep items organised is a coffee mug. Simple yet effective, coffee mugs are ideal for keeping smaller items in one place and can feature great designs, inspiring quotes or amusing slogans.
When it comes to keeping paper stationery items organised, a humble cardboard box can often suffice. Using a small cardboard file box to store stationery is much better than having envelopes and paper pads scattered around your desk. Most small boxes can easily be kept in a desk drawer so they’re out of the way while also still being close by for ease of access.
Keep Items Neat in Magazine Holders
Another good idea for keeping paper products in order is to use a magazine holder. These can be kept on your desk and are ideal for storing paper pads, large envelopes, booklets, and of course magazines themselves, which can be great to flick through during office downtime or on breaks.
Just because it has a practical use doesn’t mean that your stationery organiser has to be plain or boring. Selecting stationery organisers items in colours that match your decor or simply please you is wise, as you’re likely going to have to look at it most days.
If you really want to add a personal touch, you can also choose to decorate or paint one yourself. There are plenty of things you can do to organise your desk at home or work. From using cardboard boxes and magazine holders to store paper products through to housing pens and pencils in jars and mugs, keeping your stationery neat and tidy doesn’t have to be difficult.
