Cuando te dispones a iniciar una jornada laboral, es importante tener orden a tu alrededor. No soy yo, psicológicamente está comprobado que mientras nuestra área de trabajo esté más ordenada, mejor fluirán nuestras ideas. No tienes que deshacerte de todo lo que se encuentra en tu zona de trabajo, lo importante es tener las herramientas para organizar tus objetos. Groovemade lanzó Desk Collection para precisamente mantener ese orden. Incluye un soporte para el monitor (¿sabías que tu monitor debe estar más alto para no representar un daño para tu postura?), una bandeja para el teclado (con espacio de almacenamiento), tapete para el mouse con cojín para la muñeca, lámpara, macetas, lapicero, y hasta un dock para cargar tu celular.

When you are about to start a working day, it is important to maintain the order around. It’s not me, it’s psychologically proven that while our work area is more neat, better is the flow of our ideas. You don’t have to get rid of everything that is in your work area, it is important to have the tools to organize your items. Groovemade created Desk Collection, precisely to maintain that order. Includes a stand for the monitor (did you know that your monitor should be higher for not harming your position?), a keyboard tray (with storage space), a mouse mat with wrist pad, lamp, pots, pens, and even a dock for charging your cell phone.

All large drawers have puzzles inside. You will need to solve these puzzles to open other drawers or find secret compartments.

Adjusting these pegs on the back of the memory board changes the tune it reads. The dark pegs represent the notes of the song.

A secret button opens the center of the desk revealing a checker pattern. If you find a way to rearrange it into a key pattern the center drawers unlocks.

{Aug 6, 2016} Reorganized my desk in preparation for the new semester (it’s more than a month away but I’m so pumped I couldn’t wait to start preparing 😅)

My messy desk downstairs! It’s a quiet morning, though my desk is pretty loud with its clutter. I’m planning on just catching up on my summer reading (The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami) and learning Mandarin. My to-do list (on the left) is pretty small too.

Hey guys, I’ve been getting a number of questions regarding my desk area and how I organise myself within the space. First things first, the desk itself is made up of several components, all from Ikea, here, here and here. The chair was brought from a local charity shop and the plants are mainly from Homebase. The wire basket underneath my desk is from H&M home and used to store wires and extension cords. 

I like to keep my desktop relatively empty nowadays, aside from the plants to keep me company. I have this lovely desk lamp for *light* and aesthetic purposes. Additionally, I find keeping a candle burning to be useful in helping with studying, apparently my mind has a greater capacity to absorb information when coupled with a pleasant aroma. These are my favourites 1, 2 but you could use anything, tkmaxx has a pretty sweet candle section. If you don’t want to have candles burning for any reason, these fragrance sticks work in the exact same way.

On to how I organise the stuff!

I prefer to use drawer units as my primary storage coupled with a few shelves. 

  •  I use these cute muji storage baskets to organise the different types of stationery and to generally make the drawers appear more cohesive. The top drawer on the right houses the bulk of my most used stationery, pens, washi tape, sticky notes, highlighters etc. Knowing where everything is located saves time that would otherwise be spent  searching for that *one* thing I NEEEED to study. I’m working on assigning everything I own a specific place/space, “a place for everything and everything in its place” 
  • I have an entire drawer full of unused notebooks, these stand testament to my addictive personality and my ever so slight hoarding mentality. Most were brought from paperchase, muji and amazon
  • The drawer unit to the left hand side holds important letters and documents for university, my candle collection, electrical items(hair straighteners, charger etc) and nail polish//hand lotions. 
  • The bookshelves above my desk are primarily for books (both fiction and school textbooks) and the files holding previous completed work. Once the school term ends, I file everything away into its appropriate place. I use these A4 Craft Angle File Magazine Holders 5 Pack (I painted them white because I’m that kinda person) and these slim A4 Lever Arch Binder Natural as storage.Once I’ve finished with a notebook I file them away into these folders as well. 
  • I assign each class a ring binder and use index cards to separate handouts, reading material, marked work, misc etc. I don’t take any folders with me to class as I find them rather cumbersome and unnecessary during classes. 

I think that about covers everything, please feel free to ask me about anything I’ve not included. Have a lovely start to September and the new school year.
