Clear the Clutter
Is your home office a big mess? You're not alone. Here's how to get it under control.
Stack the Shelf
Stash the keeper magazines. Another major cause of messy pileups -- old catalogs and magazines. Dump that Restoration Hardware catalog as soon as the new one arrives and put magazines you want to keep in caddies (try our pick, at right) organized by name or subject (home design, cooking, etc). Don't have the shelf space? Cut out articles you want and store them in a box or accordion file.
No more desk mess: Put pens in a sleek cup like Iittala’s ceramic Origo Mug (from $21; www.finnishgifts.com).
Well read: Stash mags in these Classic Magazine Collector holders ($40 for two; www.russellandhazel.com).
