Working from home is a blessing — as long as you're prepped for it. Indeed, the advent of hybrid and fully remote jobs helped restore a work-life balance many of us had been missing. That is until we discovered just how messy an office-meets-bedroom can get. I, for one, will hold my hands up and admit that until very recently, my study was less than chic. My breaking point? When I had to wade through piles of paperwork and pens just to find my eraser. Not ideal. It was at this moment that I realized I needed to buy a desk organizer.

Before getting down to the shopping, though, I sought a little guidance from an expert to work out what really requires a desk organizer — and what can be kept elsewhere. Then, I went shopping at Target for some treasures. The buys you'll see below are the desk organizers shoppers rate as the best. I've showcased every type of desk-organization tool you can imagine, from wooden caddies to stackable trays, so let this list be your starting point for a lighter, brighter workplace — especially when teamed with these A1 desk-organization tips.

I reached out to organization buff and founder of Chaos to Order, Monica Friel, for some advice on what exactly WFHers need. "Where you’re located in the house and how much space you allocate are the first things to consider," she explains. In practice, this might mean asking yourself whether the office is already a little tested for space. If so, get together everything cluttering the desk, and cut out the stuff you haven't used in years. 

"Beyond that, the functionality of your desk and what you need at your fingertips comes next," she adds. That means checking if you have a set of drawers, measuring them, and then filling it with drawer organizers. No drawer space? Proceed to the next step. If you're big on files, invest in a file organizer. If you work solely on the cloud, look straight to the monitor stand with storage. You get the picture.
