When it comes to my desk, I always like anything that helps me keep it tidy. Desktop organizers are especially handy, since they let me keep things in their place, while still keeping them within reach. Typically, my desk will be littered with pens and pencils, as well as note paper, and various bills. An organizer could help keep all these things in one spot. Or, the other way to go is to use various pencil cups and small boxes. This is perhaps less tidy, but it could be the less expensive solution.
Here’s a nice one – I like the little drawers, perfect for paper clips and staples and so on:
