The Essentials: Desk drawer must-haves

Although I am normally away from my desk all day, it is still holding my life together. From my little adorable post-it notes I use for my “to-do” lists, to my color coordinated gel-pens that just make me feel like I’m a child again. My desk holds everything I need to make sure I get everything done without loosing my mind. However, with me always going in and out of my desk drawer, it is really easy for it to get a little messy and unorganized. To help me keep my desk (life) together, I have my top 10 desk drawer must haves:

1. Gel pens: These pens write so amazingly and they still make everything look so adorable

10. Clear organizer: If you buy nothing else for your desk, buy these. They look so cute and chic, but you also can see everything
