Are you that col­league from work who keeps los­ing sta­tion­ary? Use ma­son jars to keep it or­gan­ised in one place. Have books ly­ing all over your ta­ble? Use a shoe­box to stack them up neatly. Add some light to your work life by plac­ing an up­cy­cled wine ta­ble lamp on your desk. Here are some quirky things that you can try at work:
