April’s Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival was packed full of information to help people who are working from home due to COVID-19 or for other reasons. It was one of the most popular editions to date, so I thought this time we would take it a step further and look specifically at desk organization.

Check out these great posts contributed by my readers (and myself)! Please show them your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their posts (or this one) on social media, using the hashtags #POBC #DeskOrganization.

I sincerely thank everyone who contributed to this month’s Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

Next month’s topic will be Organized Shopping, and I hope you’ll be able to join us. You have until June 16th to make a submission.

Do you offer a product or service that would interest professional organizers or their clients?

Maximize your exposure by sponsoring an upcoming edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival!

I recommend...

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    Thanks for including me in this roundup, Janet. I think this is a very timely topic. I’m also realizing that even setting up a desk at home can be a challenge. Many are working from their bed or other “less than ideal” situation. I even now someone doing tele-theraphy from a pool table in the basement:) I hope all of this great advice comes in handy for those who are trying to figure things out.

      Great points, Seana. Because I’ve had a home-based business for many years, I’m so used to having a desk that I never thought that much about people having to figure THAT part out during an already stressful time. Wow!

    This was a timely topic, Janet! The wide variety of options was especially helpful.

      I try! Sadly, COVID has given me lots of ideas to explore this year.
