New year, new goals, new desk? This time of year is always the moment where we reflect on how the year went and set new goals for the upcoming year ahead. But one thing people often neglect is the importance of decluttering your desk as well as taking the time to find ways on how you can further optimize your productivity workflow. The pandemic may not be ending anytime soon so let’s help you take the necessary steps to ensure you’re working at your most optimal level for 2021.

Get yourself some storage essentials

Do your writing utensils, loose papers, and stationary items have a home? If not, it’s time to think about finding them one! Having a cluttered work desk not only takes concentration and focus away from the task at hand, it also impedes on your work motivation. To avoid this and stay productive, you need to be organized and give every single item on your desk a dedicated place where they belong. Writing tools should be neatly displayed in a pen organizer such as an acrylic slanted pen shelf organizer. Or, if you’re looking to add a little extra elegance and flair, check out the latest additions to our family of desk organizers, our ceramic marble pen holder desk organizer and our marble mini pencil case.

As for loose papers and stationary items, you’ve got a few options to choose from. Minima Basics offers intentional desk accessories for busy bosses like you to keep organized such as our popular acrylic 2 drawers storage box or our acrylic 3 slots file holder. But for the highly ambitious entrepreneurs out there who are committed to going all in on being organized this year, check out the full set. Get ready to find yourself crossing off those to-dos as effortlessly as they come in!

Friendly reminders, anyone?

As much as we rely on so many different digital tools and apps to remind us to do things, oftentimes we pack it with so much information that things start falling through the cracks. To avoid this, it’s best to go back to the basics—real, physical paper aka memo sticky notes or posties. Writing your to-do list by hand forces your brain to process information in a more detailed way, which helps you successfully load that information into your memory. Another huge benefit to this is avoiding the distraction of constant phone notifications and reminders altogether.

How about attaining the benefits of less distractions and more focus while also looking pretty on your desk? That’s why we’ve come up with our own version of memo sticky notes. Who knew sticky notes could look this good? And if you’re looking for something neat to store them in, check out this set

Get yourself a new mouse pad

If you still haven’t gotten yourself a proper mouse pad by now, it’s still not too late to get one! Mousepads are not only a staple office accessory but can also be added as another way to personalize your workspace and make it yours. And if you’re just as huge of a fan of marble as we are, we recommend you get your hands on one of our non-slip marble mouse pads. Now available for pre-order!

Working from home doesn’t have to be difficult, as long as you’re in the right place, both mentally and physically! Whether that means having sticky notes and pens at arm’s reach right when you need them or having notebooks neatly placed in their dedicated spots, ready to write down that million-dollar idea. 2021 is another year to show the world exactly what you’ve got! Starting with one desk accessory at a time.
