Ever since I started working, I would always look for ways to organize my desk. I would walk into National Bookstore or Fully Booked and I would spend hours looking at stationery items I thought I would need. I would look at notebooks, trays, pens, and racks. It was definitely a challenge picking only the things that I needed, like gold paper clips.
If you spend a lot of time at the office and looking for ways to make your space more organized and appealing. We listed a few items to get you started. Trade in your boring binder clips for something more stylish.
H&M Magazine Rack
We all rely on our laptops and smartphones for work. We communicate via email and plan things online but we are not completely paperless. There are still documents that need to be filed and organized. This gold magazine rack from H&M Home will dress up your desk while keeping all your papers in place. Available at SM Makati.
Sugar Paper Pencil Cup
Pens and pencils are always the first things to go missing at an office. Maybe you left it in a conference room or lent it to someone. For the ones that you manage to keep, place them in a chic pencil cup so you know where they are the next time you need them. Available at The Gorgeous Mess, P3, Powerplant Mall.

A small tray is nice to have on your desk so you can keep your little knick-knacks in order. These glass boxes from HAY are even better.
