Jenn, I think the fact that you were inspired to do this slideshow by your own messy desk is funny. Mine used to be pretty insane back in the day, and someone told me it was a sign of a creative mind. That was comforting, and I always knew where everything was. But then I lost something really important in the stack--a credit card bill--and there were, um, consequences. Now I try to clean it up a lot more often. Plus, the available desktop area has gotten much smaller, so, I have to.

Besides 3D printers and EV conspiracies, we tend to love messy desks here.

Variety is the spice of life, as the saying goes.  Some people are neat and unproductive.  Some are messy and productive.  And, most fall somewhere in between.

I am kind of a neat freak, but how people can work in messes like that is beyond me!

I, for one, find organization in my chaos. I imagine this is true for a lot of people.

I need to show these to my wife. Maybe she'll stop bothering me to clean up my office. One of the downsides of working from home.

Wow, there are some great ones here.  What bad timing I have.  I just cleaned mine up.
