Ten Things I have On My Desk

I decided to have fun while blogging today. I am writing about ten things I have on my desk. You can create a list with ten things on your desk or work space as well. It is fun to read what different things people keep on their desk or work space.

  1. Notebook – I list all my ideas in one notebook. I plan to get an organizer as soon as I fill this notebook up. I have had been using it for about a year and a half.
  2. Planner – I keep a planner I picked up from Walmart at the beginning of the year. This is where I keep all my appointments. Plus, where I jot down any bills I paid on the date I pay them. Plus, the amount and confirm number.
  3. Candle stand – I place a tea light candle in the bottom. On top I place some aroma wax beads or melts. The current scent is apple melon. I wish they would bring back the cucumber melon scent. as that was my favorite.
  4. Lighter – I tend to keep a lighter on my desk. That way I can light the candle.
  5. Ceramic vase – I use it to hold pens, pencils, scissors and highlighters. I use the highlighters to mark off the ideas I have written in my notebook. As I use them. I use the pens and pencils to jot down my ideas and to write in my planner. The scissors are to open the boxes I get from Amazon or I have ordered online.
  6. Smart phone – I keep my smart phone on my desk. I keep it close in case I get a call or text I need to respond too.
  7. Mouse and keyboard pad – I keep a pad that is combines to use for my mouse and keyboard. I recently received it in the mail a few days ago. I do like the look. Sometimes it is hard to control the mouse. Like all mouse pads when they first get broke in.
  8. Magazines – I keep magazines I get free. Where I get my ideas and free coupons. Afterwards they go to the fire pit.
  9. Picture – I have a picture my boyfriend and I took at one of those photo booths together.
  10. Small glass holder – I place my jewelry or hair band in when I take them off sitting at the computer. Sometimes loose change.

What do you have on your desk?

    Too much stuff. LOL I do need to weed through the papers and clean off my desktop. I have two cameras sitting on my desk to photograph crafts, mostly for the lesson plans I write, but sometimes for articles I post on my blog. And a bowl of USB flash drives (some people call them thumb drives) that I use to save articles and photos. Hey, you never know when a computer will die.

      I am starting to collect those USB drives. I like them better than CD’s.

    I have a small container for pens, pencils and letter opener in it, a stack of papers, a check amount thingy that I do use occasionally but I don’t know what it’s called lol

      The desk does have a lot of room. The left side I am always cleaning off. As people tend to use it as a catch all. I don’t like that. It blocks my speakers.

    I try to keep only a few things on my desk, like pen container , stick on paper, a notebook and a tissue box. I don’t clutter too much stuffs on it.

      I use all the things on my desk for one reason or another. I like having things at my finger tips.

    I have a computer room with a large desk but mostly I use my “couch office” and my laptop. I have a small roll top next to my computer stand and have so much unneeded stuff. The things I keep close are a notebook, my review spreadsheets, my planner, pencil sharpener. my ipad and smartphone which are both running earning apps, a rose from my hubby and a large glass of sweet tea.

      I like to keep what I use for and with my writing near as well. How do spread sheets help you? I do not use those.

    You’re a brave soul to talk about what’s on your desk! Mine is cluttered with tons of research notes and notebooks. I keep telling myself that I need to get organized.

      I like to keep my desk organized and clean.. I have no issue talking about what I use when it comes to writing. That is what i use my desk for. Unless I play games on Facebook.

      Do you mean cluttered? Or do you keep it clean and organized?

  6. Gina145

    You’re really organised. My desk is an awful mess because I tend to make notes on any scrap of paper I can lay my hands on. Hopefully this post will kick-start my efforts to tidy it up.

      I use a notebook to write down notes or ideas to remember. Which I can’t find at the moment.

    1. Sandy KS Post author

      If I had a laptop I would not be using a desk. One time I didn’t have a desk and my computer sat on my dresser. It was hard to use.

    Samdy, I use spreadsheets for tracking my product review items. Nothing fancy but I like to have then on paper rather than on computer because then I always have them in front of my. I date when I order, what the product is, date when arrives and again when it’s reviewed. I have 2 check marks when completed, one for the site I reviewed for, the other if I did a blog.
