As deputy editor of Stylelist Home, it's not always easy containing all the mail and 'stuff' that piles up around my desk. Although I can't say my work desk is always orderly, it's definitely not chaotic. That said, it's not a secret that I've always been a bit of a neat freak. Even as a child, I needed my room to be (super) tidy and pencils and books had to be organized a certain way -- by height, tallest to shortest from left to right...for both pencils and books (if you must know). I've gotten better over the years, however, and now I'm taking a more 'casual' approach to organizing that's less regimented. But when it comes down to it, we all have our own approach to 'order' and as long as you can find what you're looking for when you need it, I think that's pretty good. I just happen to have some strict rules for myself.
Here are some of my favorite organizing accessories...and a glimpse into how I keep things in order.
