Hello everyone! For today’s BirthMay post I’m sharing a little desk tour!
This is my third annual BirthMay! What is BirthMay, you ask? Well I blog every day in May because it’s my birth month! I started BirthMay in 2017 and did it again in 2018 so I knew I had to do it again this year.
Now, I had to photograph my desk from a weird angle because I recently got rid of a bookshelf and I have piles of stuff in front of my desk that needs to be moved out of my office so I didn’t want to show too much of that. Whoops! Even so, you get the point in this photo!
As you can see, my desk is a glass desk with metal holding it all together. In the middle of the desk is my old MacBook Pro which is still going strong! I also have an old USB Apple keyboard in the keyboard area below it as well as an Apple Bluetooth mouse hidden behind that pink Starbucks cup that currently has water.
I have two of those marble/wood coasters on my desk, one for water and one for tea if I make some. I got those as part of a set of four from Pier 1 a few years ago and the others are around my office and bedroom. In the corner you can’t see above that lone coaster is a mug with pens and such. You can also see my book/notebook pile where I have books I’m currently reading and a notebook for blog ideas or anything else I have to jot down. On the opposite far corner I have my spare monitor that I got at work for free (they were getting rid of older monitors) which I connect to my laptop when I need two screens. At work I have two and it’s so much easier for me now that I’m used to it.
In front of the spare monitor I have some random beauty products that I find myself needing at my desk from time to time. Under the monitor I keep a few fake books that are used to store things like my external hard drive, my phone tripod, and other items. Besides that I also have my iPad as I generally have some YouTube video playing on it while I’m at my desk. I do have a foot rest under my desk as you can see and you can’t see all the chargers under my desk but I assure you they’re there.
I do try to keep my desk as clear as possible but honestly it doesn’t always happen. I did do a major clean up before this as I’d let things like mail pile up so I’m going to try to keep it as clean as possible going forward!
What do you keep on your desk? Any tips for keeping it clear?
