We're always on a quest to de-clutter our desks and desktops, but today we've been wondering: when is decor too much, and which objects count toward that decor? Share your thoughts with Unplggd readers.
Our own desktop contains at all times, in addition to a laptop, stand and second screen: a red Swingline stapler, two framed photos, a tiny metal sculpture of bird feet, several vinyl and Japanese toys, a vintage tin for holding pens and a tray for holding other supplies. (Also, embarrassingly, all the mugs that are waiting to be carried downstairs.)
These are the bare minimum of desk components, for us: some stylish utility items, useful things that double as decor, a reminder of family and some personal expression. But we have to admit that lots of other bits and bobs get rotated in, be they toys or project components; as lifelong messy deskers, we've pared down the essentials to ensure all the other miscellanea has a place to go.
When you're finished cleaning and decluttering, what equipment, utility and decor items remain? Share yours with other Unplggd readers in the comments below.
