Is your study desk messy? I don’t need to say more…

On weekdays, many school supplies and daily necessities are blindly stacked together, making the desktop appear cluttered and invisible

Reduced learning efficiency

; So, how do we do a good job of organizing and storing the desktop? And listen to me.

According to the comprehensive survey,

A neat and clean study desk can increase people’s work efficiency by about 28%.

A cluttered study table will make people’s thoughts messy and produce irritable emotions, thereby reducing learning efficiency and having a great impact.


If we want to quickly and effectively improve desktop organization and improve learning efficiency, we must start with the three steps of sorting, storage and maintenance~

【Finishing part】

To do a good job of desktop storage, the first step is to do a tidy statistic first, and do a good job of sorting and sorting while knowing what you have.

1.1 Statistical classification

First of all, we should put all the things used around the study table on the table, and after taking out all the items, we can have a general understanding of what we have, and then we can plan how to store them next.

And then, first

Separate all the sundries according to the two major categories of daily necessities and school supplies, and then subdivide the two categories into three subcategories of “what needs to be used now, what may be used, and what has not been used for a long time”, so that the “situation” is instantly much clearer~

1.2 Renunciation

And then, in all of these things,

Carry out a “disengagement”

The object of disengagement is first of all

Items that have not been used for more than a month or more,

These want

Discard or move out decisively

The storage range of the study table.

Secondly, there are some specific objects,

A few examples

Like what:

1. The pen that does not write well,

It will affect the learning efficiency, and it will also occupy the land if it is retained.

2. Refill after use,

Attention collectors! These refills will take up space in plain terms.

3. A ruler or pad whose scale has been blurred

Wait, it is laborious to use, and it occupies the land ~

4. Repeated tutoring books or notes or examination papers that have not been opened for a long time,

Some of the teaching aids you buy that you can’t open won’t open, don’t keep yourself to deceive yourself!

5. Used scratch paper and paper towels

, as well as too much spare scratch paper and so on.

6. Books with bells and whistles

, often some people like to buy books, many of them are currently not used in vain wasted space, it is better to receive neatly in the box.

Items such as the above are objects that we want to “break off” and should be decisively removed or discarded!

1.3 Desktop partition planning

After doing the break, we need to observe the remaining items and at the same time be mindful

Have a general plan for the division of the desk,

For example, you can divide the desktop into two, and place glasses, eye drops, headphones, water cups, snacks, tissues, which are not related to learning, but are often used daily necessities;

On the right, study items such as books and teaching aids are placed, and small sundries such as stationery are stored in drawers… This is not for you to do it, but first have a general plan for the division of the desk area in your heart, so that it can be carried out later, and I will elaborate on it later~

1.4 Finishing of wires

In the last step of sorting, we need to unify all the cables on the desktop (including computer power cables, connecting cables, mobile phone charging cables, desk lamp cables, etc.), which are roughly divided into three steps –

Clear the excess wire, only 1-2 wires with uniform plugs need to be left, and the rest are put away in a sealed bag for later use.

Shorten the long wire, you can bundle the computer connection cable and power cord that do not move often into bundles, and fix the position of the plug row at the same time; Finally, prepare the harness storage box, and try to label each wire, it is easy to find the harness when overhauling and plugging and unplugging, and it is not easy to mess up and entangle.

【Storage part】

After sorting and sorting the items, it is the main play – storage, we will find a “home” for all the items in this step.

2.1 Space and item segmentation

The above mentioned desktop partition planning, this is to give us an idea of all the categories of items on the desktop; The subdivision of learning space is not only to clean up, but also to use conveniently, so as to improve work efficiency while avoiding “secondary clutter”, which is the purpose of subdivision space.

So how do we break it down? For example, the most frequent appearance of the study desk desktop should be books, teaching aids, test questions, etc., so

The most commonly used areas on the desktop should be divided into study areas, stationery can be put into pen holders, different book papers can be labeled, and document boxes should be stored.

At the same time, divide the space in the upper left and lower left corner of the desktop (or use the storage cabinet) as a daily necessities area to place water cups, snacks, and sundries; Use drawers as a storage area for school supplies, storage glasses, headphones…

In general, it is to have a designated place for each item.

2.2 Drawer compartment storage

Drawers are also not simply stacked.

Especially for computer desks with multiple drawers, otherwise after accumulating too many clutter, every time you find a piece of eraser, pencil, sharpener and other small things, you will have to worry about the individual~

It is recommended to add a “partition” inside the drawer,

Use compartmental storage to store different kinds of scattered small objects, so that it will look clear at a glance; At the same time, the most commonly used should be placed in the upper drawer according to the frequency of use, and the spare and infrequently used small objects can be stored in the lower drawer.

For example, when you are busy studying, you can easily access any item.

Save the trouble of rummaging; If it takes 1-2 minutes to rummage through an item, looking for 5 samples at a time can save 35-70 minutes a week!

This is the best example of storage to improve learning efficiency.

2.3 Expand storage space

Each study desk has a fixed storage area, and if you can’t avoid clutter after completing the above steps, then it means that

Need to expand storage space



Expanding storage space requires storage tools

, such as installing wall storage shelves and using small wooden shelves to raise monitors to make full use of longitudinal storage space expansion; Or use gap storage shelves or tableside storage shelves and storage cabinets to store, but this needs to be added depending on the space area of the house.

The most practical thing is to use the space under the table.

Sacrificing some legroom to place storage shelves and storage boxes (some footstools also have storage space), you can fully expand the capacity, in general, it is necessary to be good at using storage items according to your own environment for storage~

【Keep part】

After doing all the above steps, your study desk is probably back to neat and tidy, and the problem that has been removed is maintained.

3.1 Check after use

The simplest and most practical step to keep your desktop tidy is

Check frequently

, check the desktop clutter after each study,

Put the used items back in place,

Two or three minutes can reduce a lot of burden for future storage, don’t wait for a certain degree of chaos to re-organize.

3.2 Reduce paper addition

After organizing and tidying,

In the future, we should take the initiative to reduce the addition of paper learning materials and documents, and convert some documents that are not commonly used, not very important, or are convenient to consult on the computer into electronic documents and save them in the computer.

It also invisibly reduces the burden of storage.

3.3 Regular tidying

Regular tidying up is the last way to keep the desktop tidy, and it is suggested that we should change according to the study plan.

Make adjustments to new or more important items

(such as putting it in a place that is easier to reach), do not set the area forever unchanged, otherwise there will be some meaning of abandoning the book to the end.

Breaking away is not only about storing and tidying up this time,

Check at any time, or discard and remove some unwanted, expired items every once in a while, otherwise the clutter will only get in and out, and the desktop will only get messier.

Well, the above is the tip of the study table to organize and store, flexible use, you can make the study table tidy again~
