To be able to work efficiently, we need a clean and organized space. Finding everything in order makes it easier for us to concentrate and finish work quickly.
If you're looking for ideas on how to keep your home office or study area free from clutter, here are five easy solutions that you can do.
Use clear plastic containers to keep cords, earphones, and other wires properly organized. Doing this prevents tangles and getting all your chargers mixed up.

Keep track of bills and documents by sorting them into different piles such as: OPEN (for letters and new bills), PAY (for bills way past due), AWAY (for letters and correspondences that you need to send or old bills that you need to discard), and ITEMS (for scissors, letter openers, and the like).

Weekends are the best days to take on some craft projects. Prepare an old shoe box and around 8 to 10 old cores from toilet paper or paper towels. You may cover the shoe box with a decorative paper. Choose designs that match your room's style or you may also experiment with prints and patterns.
As for the rolls, you may cover them in paper as well or paint them with your chosen hues. Line them up inside the box then add your pens, pencils, and other essentials.

Liven up a plain wall while keeping loose papers organized by hanging clipboards in front of your work desk. Make it quirky by choosing clipboards with different designs. If these aren't available, you can always cover them in colorful paper.

Collect old mason jars and clean them thoroughly. Aside from lining them up on one side of your desk, you may also stack them (as seen in the photo) then secure the setup using a glue gun. Make sure that the jars are properly glued together. Use your finished project to store writing essentials. If mason jars aren't available, you may also work with tin cans.
