A compact “vault” filled with tons of pockets, drawers, and compartments so you can safely store all your documents and supplies … and maybe even a few snacks. It also easily folds up so you can move it from room to room.


Promising review: “This is great! I bought it before an international move to organize my bits and bobs and I love it. The different sized folders are so useful and I love that it has drawers for things like keys and currency.” —lauraholic

An absolutely ~purrrfect~ Post-it note holder that will not only put a smile on your face every time you look at it, but also does a pretty great job of keeping your precious sticky notes safe and secure until you’re ready to use them.


Promising review: “Not only is this holder adorable, it actually stays in place! I’ve had other dispensers that would move around or fall over when I would grab a post it note from it which defeats the purpose. Nice to have it work right! Doesn’t take up a ton of space either.” —Libra Lady 78

Get it from Amazon for $8.68+ (also available with a pack of Post-It notes).


A nifty shelving unit to add some extra height so you’ll actually have space for your laptop, text books, and everything else you need to get some work done at home.


Promising review: “I am so glad I purchased this shelf! I was surprised by the quality. It doesn’t feel flimsy or like it will break. It was super easy to put together, very sturdy and holds a lot. You’re able to adjust the length of the shelf because the two parts aren’t connected, which is nice. Its not too big or bulky that it takes up too much space, but still reasonably sized to fit pretty much everything you need. Overall, I just love it and am happy with my purchase!” —Desiree W.

Promising review: “Totally love this. It arrived on time and I was not expecting it to be so big. I love the fact that it rotates. I have another desk organizer but I always had a hard time finding a pen or highlighter. This little jewel solved that problem. The price was excellent and the quality of the product is awesome. There is so much room!” —kittylover

Get it from Amazon for $10.97+ (available in two colors).


A monitor stand that will not only raise your screen up to eye-level, but will also add two surprisingly spacious storage drawers underneath.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I needed something to raise my monitor to eye-level, and this riser had the added feature of drawers. Initially upon ordering it, I wasn’t convinced that I would like the mesh design, wondering if it would be sturdy enough to solidly support the weight of my monitor. My initial hesitation about the mesh was alleviated as soon as the product arrived. I am impressed with the build quality. It is definitely sturdy enough to support my 25-inch display. It has no rough corners or edges, has a nice painted finish, the drawers open and close smoothly, and I like the fact that the mesh allows me to see the contents of each drawers. After using it for about a month now, I can say I am quite satisfied and would recommend it!” —L

Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in two colors).


Or a raised laptop stand if you haven’t yet upgraded to a second monitor. It’ll keep your screen elevated with enough room underneath for a keyboard or other office supplies.


Promising review: “I use my laptop as a second monitor, with a wireless mouse/keyboard combo. This stand is slightly higher than several others, and puts my laptop screen at the perfect height so it’s level with my eyeline. The height is also great for video conferences, which I’m doing more and more – the laptop camera is now level with my face, so no unflattering “campfire ghost story” angles! It’s also got a squared-off shape to the base, so I can slide files underneath for easy access during calls. The design allows my laptop to be fully vented, too, so it stays cool. Really great stand at a good price!” —Linda in NJ

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three colors).


A collapsible file holder so you’ll have a place to throw all of your planners, documents, and random mail that’s too important to throw out but not important enough to open right away.

A sleek platform to convert a normal desk into a super ergonomic standing desk so you can stay on your feet and keep focused during that afternoon slump.


Promising review: “I spend a lot of time using my computer at work. I developed some back issues in the past year and have become super protective of my back.

This standing desk converter is amazing. The distance between the riser for the monitor and keyboard tray is perfect, very ergonomic! It raises and lowers very smoothly and easily. I’m tall and I don’t even have to raise it up all the way, so it easily would work for those who are tall. It doesn’t take up a lot of space on my desk so I still have plenty of room for other things. It also comes with great accessories for cable management. It is very sturdy. Also, the cost for what you get is incredibly affordable … and definitely well worth the benefit! It’s been such a hit that my co-worker ordered the same one and loves it just as much.” —Gillian

This genius cord box that’ll neatly organize all of your chargers and stop them from becoming a wild, tangled mess all over your floor.

Daniel Boan/BuzzFeed

When Great Useful Stuff sent this to me for review, I thought it would simply be a cute way to keep my chargers from falling under my desk and becoming impossible to find, but I didn’t realize how it would basically transform my space. As you can see above, I had a wildly unacceptable pile of wires on my floor that was becoming so big I almost started asking it to chip in for rent. When the box arrived, I untangled the cords, placed my power strip in the bottom of the box, then threaded the wires through the holes at the top (it also comes with magnetic attachments for looping excess length in the wires, but I didn’t even need to use those). Now my cords are cleverly concealed and so much easier to manage — which makes me feel like I ever so slightly have my life together. I said slightly.

Get it from Great Useful Stuff for $69.99.


An under-desk storage shelf, because when you’re dealing with a tiny home office, literally every single bit of space counts.


Promising review: “This cabinet is so helpful to keep me and my stuff organized! I can just slide this under a table and I can keep everything in it. It has helped me keep my papers organized and clean. I definitely recommend this, super awesome!” —Stephany

Get it from Amazon for $20.87+ (available in three colors).


Or this under-desk file organizer so you won’t have to waste any of your precious desk space with a traditional tabletop version.


Promising review: “I have a desk that doesn’t have any drawers and since I have two monitors and a docking station on top of my desk, I didn’t have any room for paperwork and files! This fits my desk perfectly and gives me that added storage for files and paperwork and even a place for my pens and highlighters!” –Karen Mcdonough

Get it from Amazon for $32.76+ (available in four sizes).


A clip-on desk drawer that swivels out when you need it and swivels back in when you don’t! It’s the perfect place to stash your phone, some extra pens, or your go-to lip balm for when your lips get parched from being the only one contributing in the Zoom happy hour.


Promising review: “Excellent option to keep things at hand without getting them knocked off the desk (thanks, kitties!) or taking up too much room. Easily holds my larger phone and eyeglasses and hand cream and lipstick (for unexpected video calls!) and a snack or two. Rotates out of the way when needed.” —MaggieAnona

Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (also available in three other styles).


Promising review: “I like this product because it is large and has enough space for my highlighters, pencils, pens, and sharpies for college. This organizer has rubber grips on the end that prevent it from sliding all over your desk. It comes with a drawer that I use for Post-Its. At the moment, I can fit four packs of Post-its in the middle compartment and still have room to fit one or two more packs (just to give you a feel for how big the middle compartment is.)” —Raven

Get it from Amazon for $10.97+ (available in two colors).

Promising review: “This desk organizer is perfect for my home office. I use it to organize files while I am working from home, due to COVID-19. It was super simple to assemble and holds my calculator, stapler, tape dispenser and post-it notes neatly in the bottom trays. What I love most, is that is doesn’t take up too much space on my desk. I highly recommend this product.” —Mrs. C

A set of desk drawers that won’t take up much space, but are still big enough to store your notebooks, folders, and journals when not in use.


Promising review: “This little set fits absolutely perfectly in the space I needed it in on my office roller cart. Surprisingly good amount of space in each drawer as well. The plastic is super slick so the drawers slide easily, but don’t worry about them dumping your paper clips and other small items all over the floor… there are small tabs at the back of each drawer that stop that from happening! Yet, the drawers are easy to remove for cleaning (just empty them and lift up when pulling them out).” —Jen

A sleek four-in-one wireless charging stand so you’ll have one tidy place to charge all of your Apple products and get rid of those pesky charging cords you barely have enough outlets for.


Promising review: “I highly recommend this Apple charging station! I bought this for my husband and he absolutely loves it. It plugs right in and charges his iPhone 8, AirPods Series 1 and his Apple Watch Series 2 all at the same time with no issues and no more messy cords all over the place! There’s only one charging cord that plugs right in to the wall and I can’t believe how fast it actually charges everything and how long the battery lasts from the charge.” —Alexis

Get it from Amazon for $25.49+ (available in four colors).


Or this compact stand for your AirPods and Apple Watch so you can easily charge them when you inevitably forget to do so the night before.

An elephant-shaped phone holder since everyone needs a cute desk pet, especially one that will also keep your mess of pens and pencils in their proper place.


Promising review: “I am so in love with this elephant. It is not nearly as small as I thought it would be. The colors are so vibrant and it was very easy to put together. I just started a new job as a therapist at a school, and something this cute lets me show some style, but still be appropriate for the workplace.” —Miss S

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in six patterns).


A mini desk vacuum – it’ll gladly suck up any Dorito crumbs or Cheeto dust you leave behind after a snack break.


It runs on two AA batteries and is slightly larger than an average computer mouse.

Promising review: “I keep it on my office desk to help clean off crumbs and dust. It’s no louder than a hairdryer and has decent suction; sucks up crumbs and dust without any problem. I have also used it on my craft table to suck up glitter and other small paper scraps and again, it worked seamlessly. Great little gadget to have on hand in several situations. Might just get another.” —D. Phillips

Get it from Amazon for $10.98 (available in four colors).

At my desk, they keep the cables that I need to stay on the desk there and they are practically invisible. Definitely recommend these if you are looking to get your cables a little more organized!” —Pierce Gainey

An adjustable stand so your phone is always visible and at the right angle for any unexpected FaceTime calls.

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Amazon

Read our full review of this phone stand (#4 on the list)!

Here’s an excerpt: “It has a sleek but pretty, not-too-pink champagne-y rose gold body, an adjustable stand (so you can position it to your height perfectly), and a hole in the back you can snake a cord through for easy charging. The ledge is wide enough to fit a fairly substantial case without worry, and it’s a game-changer that I can just look at the screen to unlock my phone. Magic! Now I can keep those group text updates truly ~at a glance~ — without interrupting my flow until I take a break later.” —Maitland Quitmeyer

Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in six colors).


A cascading wall organizer to keep up with all of those important documents without having to actually store them on your desk. It also easily folds up if you ever need to take it with you!


Promising review: “This thing was a fantastic find. I have a decent-sized desk but have a lot of papers to reference frequently. I’ve tried all kinds of ways to organize them so I don’t have to flip through every single one to find the one I’m looking for, but nothing worked. I bought this and hung it on the wall next to my monitors, and now I can see everything I need at a glance! It has made my work flow so much more efficient and it also added some color to my wall! I’ve recommended it to everyone in my office.” —Lauren_Schuby

And a document clip for anyone who doesn’t have room for even one more piece of paper on their desk. I feel you.


It holds up to 30 sheets of paper and can swing back and forth.

Promising review: “This lightweight arm holds at least 20 pages without falling out. I use this to prioritize things I need to get done and it keeps me from losing paper in piles. I have neck issues because I am constantly looking down and this keeps my head up and makes data entry easier because it’s right next to the screen. It also pivots so I can adjust the angle.” —Life Is Short
