Whether you’re someone who color codes their calendar and alphabetizes their books, or a person whose primary organizational method is cryptic reminders written on loose pieces of paper in your purse, new office supplies can have a wonderfully relaxing, therapeutic effect. Even if you have the basics — Post-Its, a stapler, a whimsical coffee mug — there are always workplace gadgets you didn’t know you needed.
The right gadgets can transform your workspace from a cube of doom and gloom where you spend most of your time staring at spreadsheets and responding to passive-aggressive emails from your coworkers, into a colorful oasis of bliss and delight where you still spend most of your time staring at spreadsheets and responding to passive-aggressive emails from your coworkers, but now you have a handy dandy desktop humidifier and your skin is all dewey!
While there are a ton of cool tech gizmos out there, what we really need is a way to organize them all. Now that most people are juggling an array of devices, including work phones, personal computers, tablets, and fidget spinners, conserving space and managing the mess of wires that collects around your desk is especially important. Check out these workplace gadgets that will help you un-clutter your desk and your head, leaving more room for you to draft an angry response to Janet from HR!
