When in your office the things that you are always using should be in close reach. This means that things such as pens, computer, memo pad, and other essential office supplies. If it is something that you use a lot, but not many times throughout the day, then it should go in your desk. This makes it accessible but not in your way. You should have only the most important things on your desktop. Other things you use should be in a drawer in your desk. Try to keep your desktop clear of clutter and it will make your home office easier to use so you will be more inclined to use it.
