Easy tips to make your desk look gooooooood.

Exciting news: a few weeks ago, I started a new job! I’m still in Chicago (and loving every minute of it), and my new position is amazing and I’m just overall really, really happy. And as it just so happens, this new season of my life is starting just as school is also ramping back up.

The layout of my desk is absolutely imperative to my productivity levels. If I have a messy, unkempt workspace, then I’m unlikely to get anything done. Does anyone else feel that way?

An agenda is an absolute must, as well! I’m not the type to remember much–if it’s not in my calendar, I’m not going to do it. I love this planner–it’s gorgeous and purposeful! And who doesn’t love stickers?

Another of my favorites is this Kate Spade pencil pouch. Admittedly, I don’t use it for pencils–it’s such a great cord holder! I put my chargers and headphones in there for safe keeping (because I would otherwise lose them, of course).
