Happy Monday and welcome to the fifth installment of "Home is where the office is," a special springtime series of product-centric posts celebrating the roughly 20 million members of the American workforce who shuffle to their dens, spare bedrooms, kitchen tables, mom caves or backyard office pods at least once a week to perform what would otherwise be performed in a soulless office block miles away.
Now that we've covered the big stuff — desks
, task chairs
— as well as the little stuff
— eco-friendly staplers, scissors, pens, paperclips and on — it's high time that we got organized. Below you'll find a dozen home office storage and organizational solutions ranging from file cabinets to cork boards that will bring sustainable style to even the most crap-cluttered workspaces.
How do you keep your desktop at home tidy? Is there an organizational device that you can't live without?
