Neatly store your office supplies yet be able to easily and quickly to grab them if needed. We’ve listed various types including organizers big enough to hold everything you could need, wall-mounted space saving items, and expandable units that can be arranged in any configuration.
1. Portola Desk Organizer
The Portola Desk Organizer combines natural wood and powder-coated steel for a sleek minimalist finish. It has a square pen holder with two long slits to hold items like phones, calculators, and notebooks.
The vertical shelves mean your items are easily to hand, and it holds everything at an angle so it’s easy to see things without groping.
2. Sketch Desk Tidy
Imagine a sketch of a rectangular pencil holder, made three-dimensional: the Sketch looks half Escher, half Ray Koons. Instead of sides, this desk tidy has only a series of wire squares held above a wooden base.
The wire compartments are at different heights to hold pens of different sizes, and there’s a grooved base to stop items spilling out from the open sides. Sketch Desk Tidy is available in three different colors to match your desk.
3. Untitled Pocket
This metal wall organizer combines a small shelf with a series of coat hooks, allowing you to tidy away clutter like keys, mail, and phone chargers. It comes with holes drilled so you can add extra storage, such as butchers’ hooks to hang handbags.
At just 10cm deep, the Untitled Pocket takes up barely any space on your wall, but the sturdy steel construction means it’s far stronger than it looks.
4. New Folder Storage Unit
Sure to raise a smile in your office, this wall-mounted magazine rack is based on the original Windows 95 “New Folder” logo. It’s available in yellow or white and comes with a sticker in the shape of a mouse pointer.
The New Folder Storage Unit is made of powder-coated steel and is hung by dowels and screws at the back (included). They look great fixed to the wall in a cluster.
5. Bamboo Charging Station
I don’t know what it is about electronics made from wood, but I find them fascinating (not to mention fashionable). Amir’s Bamboo USB Charging Station is all class and can charge iPhones 5s through 7, as well as the 38mm/42mm Apple Watch.
The three USB ports pull triple duty in order to quickly charge all your devices in a flash while looking trendy chic on your desktop.
6. Wall Pockets Set
Inspired by clusters of barnacles, these pentagonal tidies can be stuck to the wall in any configuration. One side opens so they can be used to hold small items. These cheap-and-cheerful holders come in a rainbow of different colors and are made from high-density recycled cardboard.
Brilliantly, they are stuck on with adhesive tabs, so no drilling or hardware is required – perfect for extra storage. Learn more about the Wallpockets Set.
7. Over the Door Organizer
This Over-Door Organizer is designed to hold schoolwork, folders, and notebooks. The open pockets mean all your items can be seen at a glance and grabbed quickly if needed, without having to tip everything out like you do when something gets lost in a desk drawer.
At 28 inch tall, it fits inside a large school locker or on the outside of a cupboard.
8. Office Desk Organizer
This six-compartment organizer is big enough to hold everything you could need, with plenty of space to hold a notebook upright. The heights of the compartments are tapered, so smaller items fit neatly in the front and larger items are kept out of the way at the back. There’s also a drawer to hold little items like paperclips.
The Office Desk Organizer is made of coated steel mesh, with rubber feet at the bottom to hold it in place and prevent scratching on the tabletop.
9. My Spot Wall Organizer
The My Spot Wall Organizer is more a thing of beauty than a traditional desk tidy. It consists of a long wire hung across three wall anchors, kept taut by a heavy weight. From the wire, you can hang paper items, from calendars to postcards.
The design is inspired by the back-to-basics aesthetics of Bauhaus, and looks almost like a solar system attached to the wall. The unit is available with weight and anchors in black or gold.
10. Wall File Organizer
This Expandable Wall File Organizer is ideal for a home office. Hang one pocket on the wall using brackets (not included), and others will clip on easily with no extra fitting.
The set comes with four pockets, but they’re so light that you can attach more than that to a single bracket. Transparent smoke-colored plastic makes it simple to find what you’ve stored at a glance.
11. X Holes Square
The wall-mounted X Holes Square is a riff on the traditional workman’s pegboard. Made from drilled birch plywood, the unit comes with ten pegs and two small metal shelves which can be arranged in any configuration.
Use the pegs to hang large items like scissors, and use the shelves for anything small. You can also buy extra accessories if you need more storage, and hang them from the pegs in the same way as the shelves.
12. Kesito Desk Tidy
The Kesito is half-tidy, half-toy. It’s made from three rhombus-shaped bases: one hollow to hold small items, one drilled to hold pencils, and one ridged to hold business cards or phones.
Push the three parts together into a hexagon, or line them up in a parallelogram or zig-zag. It’s not only beautiful but eco-friendly, too: the Kesito Desk Tidy is handmade in the Spanish region of Tierra de Pinares from the famous local pine wood.
13. WALL CONTROL OFFICE ORGANIZER
No two office spaces are alike, so why should furniture be a one-size-fits-all design? The Wall Control Office Organizer lets you mold your storage system into something you can work with. You’ve got enough stress without having to struggle with storage.
This organizer has everything well in hand, and each shelf can be rearranged quickly when you need a change. You can even use magnets, giving you even more choices for accessories.
