When I clear my desk up, a few days later it is messy again. It is big but I have many things that I forget to clean up after using them. I tried a few things:

  • Having a little reminder
  • Each object having it's own place
  • Using a tray with a few parts for different materials

My desk is still very messy.

    As you presented this, this is an extraordinarily broad question — I think folks can only guess at what solutions might help you specifically. I suggest getting way more focused on a specific organizational problem that can be resolved definitively in the space of a post; unfortunately, this type of cleanup system or organizational strategy is a better fit for our Personal Productivity site. Good luck! – Robert Cartaino Nov 2 '17 at 20:47
