30 Great Home Office Organizing Tools

by Grace Bonney

For all its minuses (cold weather, gray skies, no new Homeland episodes), January has a few big pluses, one being the overarching clean slate feeling that the month brings. So all month, I’ll be focusing my product roundups onĀ organizational tools. Today I’m kicking things off with the office, home or otherwise. I’m struggling to get my own office in order (seriously, why is everything still covered in glitter?), so I wanted to start with some great tools that would help keep any space spic and span. Like always, I think any organizational project is a chance to extend a theme or personal style, so I’ve tried to mix in some trend- and design-conscious pieces along with the basics we all need. I narrowed down this list to my 30 absolute must-haves, but you can view my full research extras (60 more organization options) right here on Pinterest. xo, grace
