Declutter your work space by getting rid of unnecessary items from your desk.
My office space is smack dab in the middle of my living room so cleanliness is a must. The best way to keep your office clear of clutter and mess is to tidy up at the end of each work day. When you do this, you will arrive at a clean, organized desk at the start of your work day.
4 Creative Ways to Better Your Office Space
Implement an organizing system that you can stick to.
There’s a reason why most offices have a filing system or a room full of file cabinets — an organized office is the best office. When you implement an organizing system that you can stick to, you subconsciously organize your mind, your goals, and your workflow.
With an organized desk or office, you won’t have to spend time looking for paperwork or important documents because everything will have its place.

Add family photos, a dream board, or a visual things to do list, but make sure that you use your space wisely.
If you’re working in a pro office with co-workers, a boss, and the whole sha-bang, try not to add too many personal images that will distract you and others around you. Stick with three to five images that remind you of peace, love, and the reason why you go to work everyday. Since, a clean, organized desk is key to staying productive, remember to keep your photos and visual art neat.
