Ladies you know how we do it! Organizing things is our specialty with a hint of girl power in there. If you have your own personal workplace at home or at work, then giving your desk a makeover wouldn’t be a great idea.  There are tons of ways to organize your work area without breaking the bank.  Here is a list of some neat things your desk should have!

Where I work at it’s very cold in the building, so my co-worker brought a heater to keep our legs warm at all times.


Coffee Warmer: Whether you are a coffee drinker or not, a warmer will do you wonders if you drink hot chocolate or hot tea. Amazon always has great products for a great price.

A mirror for your desk: Now ladies, I know some of you are guilty for looking in the mirror about forty times a day. I can honestly say that I do that on a daily basis.  I need to look at my hair to make sure that there isn’t frizz or if my lipstick is on right.  Y’all know how that goes! But having a mirror at your desk comes in handy at all times.  If you ate pizza or a salad for lunch and you want to check your teeth, you can do it right at your desk instead of making that extra trip to the bathroom.

Having a couple of stress toys lying around can come in handy.  You will learn to be relaxed while at work without going home with a headache or becoming upset.

Make sure you get some good writing pens with the ball point or the smooth pens that write really well. I like to use paper mate and the ball point pens because they write smoothly and they don’t skip a mark while writing or signing something.

There are plenty of ways to spruce up your work place so that it doesn’t look boring. Who needs a boring work space when you can bring personality to it.  Bring sunshine to the dark spaces in your space!
