We’re headed into that time of year where the last thing you want to do is be stuck behind a desk in your home office when you could be outside enjoying beautiful weather! On top of that, it’s also tax season – your office is probably getting more use than ever! Why not take some time to make your office space a place you love? To help you out, we’ve curated products that will make your office the beautiful, efficient retreat you need it to be.
In each mood board below, you’ll find items for your desk drawers, storage cabinets, filing systems, and shelves. By grouping things that go together we hope you’ll be able to get this project done quickly, all while adding some style to your office and creating a space that will make you smile each time you walk in.

Office Organization Tips
- Sit at your desk and think through how you work. Identify your most frequently used items and arrange your office in a way that gives you access to those items from your chair.
- Use backstock cabinets to help you minimize what’s in and on your desk. This goes for both supplies and files. Keep only the essentials in your desk; store the rest away in another part of the office.
- In almost every office, the main culprit of clutter is paperwork. There are two main steps to getting it under control:
- Go through everything and decide what you REALLY need to keep. Not sure? Revisit my Organizing Important Papers blog.
- Set up a system that will keep the papers from piling up again. If you love hard copies, you’ll need a good filing system. Otherwise, I highly suggest going paperless.

If you are local to Annapolis and need a way to get rid of sensitive paperwork after editing what you have or going paperless, be sure to stop by our upcoming Shred It event on April 2, 2022, from 8 to 10 a.m. at 900 Bestgate Rd. We’ll have coffee and donuts to enjoy while you wait for Iron Mountain to shred your documents on site.
You can shred: any color office paper and file folders; no need to remove staples, paper clips, or rubber bands! You cannot shred: cardboard, plastics, common trash, hazardous materials, CDs, DVDs, magnetic media, X-Rays, computers & accessories.
