  2. Keep it in your drawers. Knowing where things are, is key to a smooth flowing workday. Here are some great tips on where you should keep things and prioritising your desk drawers.
  3. A top top drawer! If you want to use your top drawer for important and most-used items, then stick to that rule. Here are some useful tips on how to get started.

  5. Chalk on, chalk off.
