Office Essentials

First of all, I'm going to mention the fact that I need to invest in a discreet hot water bottle to use at work. Thanks for the tip One Slice of Lemon!

Keeping organised is a very important thing within the office, I find that a tidy desk gets a better reaction from supervisors and it means I can find everything I need when I need it. 

I got these two pieces from Paperchase, I keep my files in the taller one and the smaller, matching one has an even smaller one inside that separates my highlighters, pens and other stationary. Similarly, you can use drawer dividers so you where everything is and if other people use your desk they can find what they need. 

I might also try to use mason jars as pen pots because they are clear so you know what is within the jars and you can decorate with ribbons or labels for a cute addition to your desk. 

I keep many notebooks lying around, all with different purposes, I need to get some labels for them but for the moment I have a pretty good idea about what's what. Making note at work for the organisation and for my blog helps me to summarise at the end of the day.

Speaking of labels, most people know that post-it notes are handy to have around but have you tried using them on the computer? There's a type function on most laptops/computers that allows you to leave notes on your desktop.

Also, Sharpies are great for labelling files, folders and stationary if you aren't keen on using self-adhesive labels. They come in lots of different colours depending on which pack you buy and you can colour co-ordinate your office. 

These are just a few tips and ideas that help me, do you have any desk organisation hacks?
