If you have an untameable abundance of papers and equipment its best to be realistic and plan for it rather than kid yourself that you’re going to manage a minimalist workspace. Choose a set of neat magazine files to group like-with-like papers in a jiffy. Utilise small boxes and baskets for irregular shaped bits and bobs. Invest in more than one set of desk drawers, but in a matching design for a cohesive look. Bright colours work well as they bring light hearted cheer to organized chaos.
