If you’ve been meaning to organize your cluttered desk all year long but just never got around to it, now is a good time to check it off of your to-do list.

Whether you have a standing desk by a big window or were forced to turn your kitchen table into a makeshift call center, organizing your desktop is a whole lot easier with an expandable desktop bookshelf. This bamboo one by TQVAI on Amazon features a clever design that gives you five different configurations to choose from, and isn’t a total eyesore like many other expandable desktop bookshelves.

Having a variety of configurations to work with is especially helpful if you have a small desk or one in a tight corner of your apartment. Reviewers also say it’s easy to build and super sturdy, so it can hold everything from decorative items like small planters to heavy books and mini humidifiers.

Desktop bookshelves are a good way to improve the functionality of small desks because they utilize vertical space. The TQVAI expandable desktop bookshelf takes it one step further with its L-shaped configuration in which you rotate one piece by 90-degrees to create the perfect corner shelf.

The TQVAI bookshelf retails for $29.99 and comes in two modern finishes: walnut and natural bamboo. Assembly is quick and easy, and all you need is a screwdriver. The whole bookshelf is made up of seven bamboo pieces fit together to form two shelves that slide into the setup of your choice. The widest configuration is 25 inches while it can be as narrow as 10.5 inches.

As many of us have seen in 2020, WFH comes with its own set of unique challenges. But with a few adjustments and the right setup, you can create a workspace that’s comfortable and more enjoyable to work in.
