It's taken me decades, but I've finally managed to get most aspects of my life organized. I mostly pay my bills on time. I wash my dishes and laundry and even fold it and put it away right away. I clean out my car and eat right and get exercise. But for the life of me, I cannot manage to keep my desk clean. My room in general tends to be the last to get clean (I try to prioritize common space shared with my roommate along with helping my daughter keep her room clean), and my desk in particular is a disaster. Every few months I clean it, and within days it is covered with crap: whatever I had in my pockets at the end of the day, papers, important and non, gum, pens, odds and ends, change, BART cards, etc.
Do you have any special tricks, techniques, or ideas for how i can organize this last wasteland in my life, and actually maintain a usable workspace?
