In our home, there is no actual room for me to have an office. All of our rooms are used, except for what was a giant nook at the top of the stairs that I claimed as my own little office space.
Before I claimed it, there was nothing there. And first I added a desk with a hutch, but found that the hutch was useless, so I removed it and added some economical shelving with brackets from Ikea and shelves cut to fit from Home Depot. This laid the foundation for the whole space. Which brings me to the first tip…..use a desk and shelves. Shelves take advantage of vertical space, so you use less floor space for storage and hence…less mess on the floor.
4. Add Functional Organizing and Storage Products.
Using the right storage and organizing products is key to keeping a desk/office space tidy. It effectively provides a home for everything and works wonders at keeping visual clutter at bay.
Let me share with you all of the amazing Fellowes Canada products that helped me tame the clutter that was taking over my office nook. They are not only easy to assemble and very affordable, but look great in my office and contain the clutter like nobody’s business!
Magazine File Boxes. To me, they are must in any office. They keep books and magazines organized, and if you keep the tall side facing outward, they also help reduce visual clutter.
Office Bill Organizer. I love, love, love this. It not only gives me a drawer to store things away, but also 4 slots for holding bills, greeting cards, pictures, business cards and all those little pieces of paper that need a home. And this unit can fit perfectly on a shelf!

Hi Angie: Great job – I love your space.
I have a lot which could be organized, but I think my biggest challenge right now is keeping order in my children's bedrooms.
Thanks for offering such a fun giveaway!
I just moved into a new home and have to set up a space like yours. I love your desk and the chair..Please can you share where you got the desk and chair from.
Thank you for the awesome giveaway! Michelle
I'm planning on setting up my home office in a nook, similar to yours. The Fellowes boxes look great. I love to have everything coordinate!
Claire @ a little something in the meantime . . . says
Great giveaway, Angie! I completely agree that you're more inclined to keep a space organized when you make it pretty. My office is a neverending paper disaster even though I have managed to get all the other parts of it in order. That will always been my organizing goal!
Gayle Boyd says
I love these new products! Functional and pretty! My home office is my biggest challenge… Finding a way to keep it organized is one of my goals for 2014!
Looks beautiful Angie! What organization project WOULDN'T I want to tackle! That would be a shorter list. I'm always on a quest to organize and never quite get there. 😉 Great prize.
Krista Clark says
I too work from home and would love to have my office space look as organized as yours! Thanks for the great giveaway offer!
Tara @ Suburble says
Oh my… my craft room could stand some organizing.
Love how coordinated your office space is – so pretty!
There are so many…where to start?! We have a baby coming in march, so the spare room has to be converted to a nursery…which means I have to find a place to put everything that was in that room.
Your office is beautiful and well organized! I am in the middle of trying to organize an office/computer space, so thanks for the ideas!
I don't have a ''real'' office yet. But all my paperwork does need some organizing.. and very badly!!
Love you home office Angie!!
Robin Ide says
What a fabulous giveaway! My craft room seriously needs some organization…I have lots of baskets and boxes but none of them match so it ends up looking junky. Love the black and white theme of the Fellowes organization line!
Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions says
How pretty and organized, Angie! I love when storage can look pretty, too. You've carved out a great area here for your office space.
Lisa Williams says
Great looking space! I would love to get desk area where I keep the printer and my Silhouette more organized. Thanks for sharing!
I LOVE your office space and will refer to it for inspiration because I'm now working on one in my 3rd bedroom. We just do not use the bed, so out it went, in came a comfy chair and table and now for the wall…an office space!!! Do you mind sharing the brand of Lamp with us? We don't have a Fellowes so maybe I can find one in a similar store if I know the brand. Thank you so much!!!
Bette Creek says
My Craft room needs the most attention right now. A tornado went off in there!
I would have to say it is the office which used to be a bedroom. We have a table and couple of chairs in there so far but the table is always filled with papers and I could really use this prize to bring some organization into this room.
Stephanie Zito says
Wow! Awesome giveaway! I definitely need some organization! My craft room especially! Thanks so much for the giveaway!
Erika E says
I would like to tackle my computer room. It's a big mess.
I think our office I needs the most organization. Thanks for the giveaway.
Darlene Demell says
Where I need the most organization right now is my crafts. I have things all over the house and they really need to be set in one area so these boxes would be great for me.
Beautiful! I'm lucky to have a full room for my home office. At school though I have two desks in two different rooms and that's it. I need to do something to get them organized! I love your read book bookends.
I'd love to get my bedroom organized. No matter how many times I've organized and decluttered my house, my bedroom never gets done, and it would be nice to do something for me and my hubby for once.
I recently redid our home office with black and white accents. These storage containers would be ideal.
Kim Campbell says
My goal is to purge and organize so we no longer need a storage unit!!
Such a good post!
Dawn F says
My home office – it's a disaster!
BlueClearSky Elizabeth says
Your office looks great! I would tackle my hobby room/guest bedroom. The matching boxes would look amazing and so much neater.
Lorna Pomerleau says
I can't wait until I have a space to create my own adorable office. Great ideas! And I had no idea that bankers boxes could be so cute!
Kristie @ mypaperlife.com says
Wow, you really made great use of that space! It looks awesome!
Jeannie Lam says
Wow! What a great use of storage boxes. I think the first thing I would tackle is organizing our filing cabinets and our book shelf. So messy, so many sheets of papering lying about.
Katrina Murphy says
Love your off ice space
I don't have a room for all my school stuff and scrapbook ing materials but recently started cleaning up a space in the basement. It needs nice lighting too and a few prettys to make it a welcoming space to work.
You are a rock star blogger
Catie @ Catie's Corner says
Wow, I love your office space Angie! It's soo cute and well organized. =)
I recently started working with my husband and have set up a desk in the corner of our living room. I would love some help getting the area organized. Thanks for the chance to win!
I have to tackle the home office job as well as our closet. It is a wreck! By the way I love your office solutions. It is beautiful!
Jeff Skidmore says
I have a huge storage closet that has needed organizing for the last 10 yrs!
Im getting ready to move, so thats a big task in need of organization and needing supplies to display things nicely in a new place!
My office, it is not only an office but also the craft room and excersize room…oh it needs help!

My office space is a disaster, and nothing matches – winning this giveaway would be perfect to get things under control!
Katie Nathey says
I need to organize my office and I am loving your chair too! Where did you get it?
Paula Schuck says
So so glad I just found this post. I am getting an office soon – 3 weeks ! Yeah Wahoo. Can you tell I am excited?? It's been a LONNGGG time working at the kitchen table, dining room table, corner of basement i.e. anywhere my laptop will go. So I am eager to tackle the madness of setting this beautiful space up. I love your organizers. I adore your bill drop off space. It beats where mine currently end up on the dining room table. So I need this and want it! So adore your little lamp and your pretty style.
Brandee H says
I'd like to tackle my desk. It curreny has so many stacks of thinks on it, I cant even reach my computer!
2012july/Cheryl Grandy says
I'd like to organize my home office. It's not in a room where I can close the door to hide it,so it would be nice if I had matching storage items for it.
I desperately need to organize my closet!
Your space looks fantastic. I would love to organize my computer/office space.
I would love to organize all my cupboards
Nicolthe pickle says
I would like to tackle my husbands office, but I don't think he'd let me so I'm going to say my laundry storage area. That big mess on the shelf above the washing machine. 🙂
Angela M says
I need to organize my laundry room. It has recently become a dumping ground for way more than laundry. I need to do some purging, cleaning, and organizing for sure.
My office is a vortex of random papers – it's in dire need of organization!
Cindy Babcock says
I need to organize my closets. All of them!
