My desk is rather neat. An 'L' shaped desk in the corner of the office. Paper that needs my attention is stacked to me left, everything else goes immediately into 'File 13.' A hutch on the longer end of the desk houses extra supplies, paper, pens, envelopes, all my essentials. A printer rests on top of the hutch. A simple layout but it does it's job.
