Organize Your Workspace

With the right organizational desk accessories, you can turn a once-cluttered workspace into a stylish and tidy area. Ordinary office basics like letter trays and pencil holders are available in a variety of surprisingly stylish designs on Amazon.

For those with small or crowded desks, you can create additional space with an adjustable rack. This best-selling Amazon option is a favorite among customers, including one that wrote, "My tiny office cannot hold bookshelves or cases and I knew I needed storage space that went up. My desk is quite narrow and I was losing precious working space. Putting them together was very easy."

Add some spunk to an otherwise drab office space with colorful and functional desk accessories. This waterproof pad not only protects your desk from spills and stains, but thanks to its thin size, you can use it as a mousepad, too.

Extend that eye for chic design to your choice of tech accessories, too. Clear up cord-related clutter with a sleek lamp that offers multiple USB charging ports. For those feeling especially creative, add a fun keyboard to the mix, like this compact, colorful option that one reviewer called "a dream.
