    I LOVE these ideas! In an OfficeTeam survey (http://officeteam.rhi.mediaroom.com/2015-01-20-What-A-Messy-Desk-Says-About-You), more than two-thirds (68 percent) of HR managers felt it’s at least somewhat acceptable to have a messy desk at work. In fact, 9 percent even said it’s a sign of a creative person. However, nearly one-third (32 percent) stated they would question an employee’s organizational skills and effectiveness if that person had an unkempt workspace. No one wants to be in that last group. The desk organization ideas in this article are great for showing your creativity in your home or work office!
