Help needed on organizing papers on top of desk
I have a computer desk which the pull-out shelf broke a long time ago and I now have my keyboard and large flat screen monitor on top of the desk. There are also 2 small speakers on either side of the monitor as well as a desk calendar. I have drawers behind the desk that I can get to by just turning my chair around but I've found that when I put things in a drawer, I "forget" it's there. Out of sight, out of mind sort of thing.
My problem is the accumulation of notes I write and papers that I need to do something with before filing. What is the best system for on top of the desk? Vertical or horizontal? Is there one that takes up minimum space since 2/3 of the desk is taken up by the computer and keyboard?
